If you’re tired of all the Great Gatsby themed parties, we recommend you move to one of our favorites, Alfred Hitchcock’s movies. Alfred Hitchcock has defined thriller movies in Hollywood by bringing glamour into suspense; his leading ladies are now iconic fashion figures like Grace Kelly and Tippy Hedren. The costumes designed by Edith Head have become a style inspiration for many known designers, an incredible style that captures elegance and sophistication. As fall is already here, it feels perfectly right to dress like one of his iconic heroines. These ladies were a big inspiration for fashion during the 50s and 60s.
