In 2005, the Complete Book of Oscar Fashion was published. It displayed the gorgeous of red carpet stars and the unforgettable moment with more than 400 exquisite pictures and extraordinary argument from famous critic Reeve Chase. The book introduced the first Oscar Award, founded in 1992, was as small as a private party. Few people shot. The whole ceremony lasted for only a few minutes. In fact, no one was clear what Janet Gaynor was in at the party. Soon after that in 1930, people can listen to the Oscar on the radio and watched it on TV in 1953. The ceremony that was born for film and star became more and more popular. During World War II In 1944 to 1945, stars had to be in simple. Pretty Ingrid Bergman wore the same evening dress for two Oscar. The dress featured on star-shaped embroidery, which made the ordinary suit more vivid. In 1998, Ingrid Bergman who had a genuine character wore an evening dress which looked like wrapped in the Greek statue. The large amount of pleat, the flowing sleeves and the boyish hair added much color. In the 1970s when hippy fashion prevailed and people pursued nature, she was in a loose green printing evening dress. Even she was no longer young, her charming was still there. In the chapter of the most beautiful evening dress in Oscar, seven wonderful evening dresses were introduced. Among of all the most attractive dressing was Grace Kelly’s dress in the 1955 Oscar when she won the best actress. She was in a blue champagne silk evening dress, matching with white gloves and embroidery bag. The dress material was spun in Paris, which cost 4000 dollars. The book also told us some other special fashion of stars. As required in the role, Betty Davis shaved her hair bald when she played Queen ElizabethⅠin the Virgin Queen. So she wore a gold helmet on which there was a crown when she took part in the 1995 Oscar Award. Cher wore a 2-feet-high ornament for the head made by cock feathers. The ornament became the staple topic of conversation in the next few years and was talk excitedly by tabloids. At the 2000 Oscar Award ceremony, Ercan Patou wore a huge scarf that was in compliance with African traditional culture. Those who sat behind her could not be happy any more. In 1999 Kim Basinger put on a special evening dress that had only one glove and a half coat. Coco Chanel said fashion fade like a flower but classic never grew old. The book showed us many different generations, from the 1930s’ exquisite curve hair, fox shawl, long silk dress to the 1940s’ new visual fashion, the 1950s’ Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe’s elegant. According to the writer, Reeve Chase said the right taste was to keep low profile, be conservative and harmonious. So the 1930s and 1940s that had passed away were pronoun of elegance. While the 1980s meant to be flaunt and vulgar.

Open the closet of goddess Hepburn


If a goddess should be chosen in the fashion circle, Audrey Hepburn must to be first. From the Rome Holiday in 1995, nearly her every film would bring a new fashion trend. Even today, Hepburn’s dressing is still bright-colored and dazzling when looking at these old pictures. How this noble, elegant woman had such a great influence? You may find the answer in her closet.
Swing Skirt in Rome Holiday 



In 1952, Hepburn was found by the famous director William – Wheeler who gave her the chance to play leading actress in Rome Holiday, one of the classic movies that brought great success to her. She also won her one and only Oscar Award for best actress in her life with Rome Holiday. What impresses us most is the white shirt and swing skirt in Princess Anne when she was visiting the town of Rome. Actually, the swing skirt was changed from a double-breasted jacket and an oblique cutting circular skirt. But the princess just had the skirt and white shirt on. So on some posters of Rome Holiday, the princess’ skirt was blue, which was actually a mistake, and the skirt was blown.

Givenchy’s classical black and white flower skirt
Some day in the summer of 1953 was important for Hepburn, because she met with Schubert –Givenchy. Hepburn went for Paris to select costume for her second film in which she would be the leading actress. And she chose Givenchy as her designer. Hepburn selected three of Givenchy’s works from the ready-made garments. One was the black and white flower skirt. It was a white, tight and sleeveless long evening dress in Givenchy’s spring and summer fashion show of 1953.
Every part of the dress was embroidered with black velvet flowers, which was breathtakingly beautiful.

Hepburn’s wedding dress
On 25th, September, 1954, Hepburn married actor Mel Feiler who was introduced to Hepburn by Pike, leading actor of Rome Holiday. They fell in love with each other in first sight, soon they decided to marry. Their wedding was held in a little church of Switzerland. Avoiding all the media, they went for honeymoon in a lonely mountain village of Italy. But their marriage only lasted for 14 years. Hepburn’s wedding dress that she had in her first wedding was a white organdy fabric short dress which was designed by Givenchy.

A Sweet girl look
In Sweet Girl that hit the big screen in 1957, Hepburn kept on her corporation with Givenchy. He designed all the costume. When the film was shown, Hepburn became a symbol of fashion. In this film, she had many classical and elegant clothes. And the most impressive one belonged to a low cut sleeveless flower dress which was made by creamy silk fabrics. When Hepburn put on the dress and flied pigeon in front of the fountain, you must be mistaken for an angel falling from heaven. Hepburn had another white suite skirt in the Sweet Girl. It was a silk fabric suit in Givenchy’s spring and summer design of 1956.
