How Well Do You Know Your Film Fashion?

Where would the movies be without pretty people in pretty clothes? Test your knowledge of cinematic duds!

  1. The green dress that Keira Knightley wore in "Atonement" was voted the best film costume of all time in a Sky Movies/"In Style" poll. Can you pick it out from these other memorable green movie dresses?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    This is the gown Cecilia dons for her fateful rendezvous in the library with Robbie Turner (James McAvoy). The other green dresses above belong to Paula Patton in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind (1939), and Christina Aguilera in Burlesque (2010).

  2. It takes confidence for a guy to depart from the typical suit colors of black, gray, and navy. As the title character in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," which non-conformist suit did Leonardo DiCaprio wear?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Jay Gatsby wore a pink suit, which may have marked him as too flamboyant to be an Oxford man, but it looked pretty sharp on DiCaprio anyway. The other suits shown above belong to Al Pacino in Scarface (1983), Jim Carrey in The Mask (1994), and Joe Pesci in My Cousin Vinny (1992).

    Warner Bros.
  3. Movie showgirls have donned some iconic stage outfits on the screen, but which of these is the one worn by Liza Minnelli's Sally Bowles in "Cabaret"?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Add some sparkles and you're all ready for some Weimar Republic decadence. Other showgirl costumes above were worn by Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge! (2001), Madeline Kahn in Blazing Saddles (1974), and Elizabeth Berkley in Showgirls (1995).

    Allied Artists
  4. Which of these bondage-y black-on-black outfits is Johnny Depp's from "Edward Scissorhands"?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    All those straps and no fingers — it's no wonder Edward just puts a shirt over his black suit when he tries out a new look. Other neo-goths above include Keanu Reeves in The Matrix (1999), Doug Bradley in Hellraiser (1987), and Brandon Lee in The Crow (1994).

    20th Century Fox
  5. Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) doesn't dress like the suit-and-tie officers he eventually ends up working with in "Beverly Hills Cop." Which of these movie T-shirts is Murphy's signature in the '80s movie?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Beverly Hills Cop producer Jerry Bruckheimer made his alma mater Samuel C. Mumford High School famous by having his star wear a "Mumford Phys. Ed. Dept" T-shirt in the 1984 hit. The other notable movie T-shirts above were worn by Dana Carvey in Wayne's World (1992), Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction (1994), and Curtis Armstrong in Revenge of the Nerds (1984).

  6. Which of these classic little black dresses is the one donned by Rita Hayworth in "Gilda" as the definitive eponymous femme fatale?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Hayworth wore this black satin sheath, designed by Columbia Pictures' Jean Louis, when she sang "Put the Blame on Mame" in Gilda. The studio sirens keeping her company above are Anita Ekberg in La Dolce Vita (1960), Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), and Jane Russell in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953).

    Columbia Pictures
  7. The Oscars love their period dramas, even when it means the winners tend to look a little similar. Which of these dresses from the past decade's winners of the Academy Award for Best Costume Design did Kirsten Dunst wear in "Marie Antoinette"?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    So many yellow-gold gowns, so many corsets required to shimmy into them. The sumptuous costumes in Sofia Coppola's film about Versailles in the years leading up to the French Revolution won Milena Canonero her third Oscar in 2007. The other dresses above were worn by Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007), Emily Blunt in The Young Victoria (2009), and Keira Knightley (again) in The Duchess (2008).

  8. Brad Pitt can wear the hell out of a leather jacket — and has, in multiple movies. Which of these is the one he wore in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    In his older days (which were also his younger ones), Benjamin wore this sweet leather jacket while doing some motorcycle riding. The other jackets are from Fight Club (1999), Killing Them Softly (2012), and Se7en (1995).

  9. Which of these prim drag outfits was worn by Dustin Hoffman as a desperate actor who disguised himself as a woman to get a role in "Tootsie"?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Hoffman plays Michael Dorsey, who disguised himself as Dorothy Michaels. He may not have been a terribly convincing woman, but he became a soap opera sensation regardless. Fellow cross-dressers above include Nathan Lane in The Birdcage (1996), Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), and Martin Lawrence in Big Momma's House 2 (2006).

    Columbia Pictures
  10. Cher Horowitz's fashion sense in "Clueless" is always impeccable, even if her matchmaking skills are sometimes lacking. Which of these is NOT an outfit worn by Alicia Silverstone during the film?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    This getup was actually worn by Meg Ryan in 2004's Against The Ropes, where she played Jackie Kallen, one of the first female boxing managers and a woman with some bold clothing choices.
