Inspired by Vuk Vidor's iconic Art History work, we consider the signature style of legendary fashion icons

As Marc Jacobs said, "Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them," be it the white dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in 1955 for romantic comedy The Seven Year Itch, or the racy black safety-pinned Versace gown that propelled Elizabeth Hurley into the media limelight in 1994, when she accompanied Hugh Grant to the premier of Four Weddings and a Funeral. From John Lennon’s round glasses to Farrah Fawcett’s flick, AnOther consider legendary style moments made famous by the icons who wore them — or rather, OWNED them.
