The Dresses That Became History


Sometimes men do not understand why it takes too long for a woman to decide what to wear on an occasion. Well, it’s easy for them, as they only have to wear a suit and a tie. The hard part is always finding the perfect dress that will make you the center of attention. Sometimes, you even decide not to go somewhere if you haven’t found the proper outfit. Such thing most men will never understand, but women will support each other on this issue.

What you wear to a certain event is something that will remain in everyone’s memory if you have hit the jackpot and showed up wearing the most amazing outfit. But even if you show up in the most outrageous outfit ever and everyone is shocked, it will also remain in everyone’s memory.

Through the years we have witnessed many red carpet events, fashion shows, movie premiers, festivals, concerts etc. If you ask someone what are the most iconic dresses worn by famous celebrities, for sure he/she will name a few. There are so many beautiful outfits worn by our favorite artists, which are still remembered, even though so much time has passed. One can also name a few that almost shocked everyone with their extravagant outfits. When speaking of shocking, we are pretty sure that Lady Gaga’s meat dress at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2010 will never be forgotten.

Maybe it was Marilyn Monroe who started the game of the most memorable dresses or not, because the white dress she wore in the movie The Seven Year Itch in 1955 has remained a timeless piece, which gives you the impression that it has spread its roots so deep that people still recognize it nowadays.

As we like to bring back some of the things that have happened many years before, we have rounded up for you some of the most iconic dresses in history.
