CINEMATIC SLIPS | The Darling Of The Silver Screen

Posted in FASHION ON November 28, 2017

Walking a fine line between a dress and a nightgown, the slip dress is as much at home in the boudoir as it is underneath a leather jacket, paired with mules.

A piece of timeless, silky perfection that reveals just enough, the slip dress is a stable in the modern woman’s wardrobe, regardless of age or body shape.

A regular of the silver screen, the slip has graced the famous figures of many a starlet.

Elizabeth Taylor, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) 

The 1958 film adaption of Tennessee William’s play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof set the scene for one of Elizabeth Taylor’s most memorable performances (and outfits). Adorned with delicate lace along the necklace and hem, the elegant ivory slip gently hugs Taylor’s iconic curves.


Michelle Pfeiffer, Scarface (1983)

Easily Michelle Pfeiffer’s breakout performance, Pfeiffer brought to life the role of Elvira Hancock, and just as importantly, her enviable wardrobe. The character’s standout piece, a navy blue, v cut slip dress, ensured Pfeiffer’s turn as Elvira would be unforgettable.

Angelina Jolie, By the Sea (2015)

Writing, directing and starring in 2015 romantic drama By the Sea, Angelina Jolie brought the slip dress back to the silver screen. Black as night, with a lace embellished deeply cut v neckline, it is a slip as dramatic as the French costal landscape in which the film is set.
