    21 years ago The Adventure of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert sashayed into cinemas. Winning the Academy Award for Costume Design in 1994, here we rank the costumes from least to most ICONIC!

    15. The Ping Pong Pub Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    While the costumes overall are amazing, everything about this is awful.

    14. The Stranded In The Outback Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    Green is really not Mitzi's colour.

    13. The Nuanced Nuptials Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    While understated and classic, this just isn't the best we've seen of Mitz.

    12. The Opening Number Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    That dress-and-g-string combo is definitely a pearler, but this rather basic look doesn't compete with later costumes.

    11. The Flora, Fauna... And Merryweather Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    These fab frocks fall to forgettable besides the ICONIC costume changes in this final number.

    10. The Cock In A Frock On A Rock Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    They look like literal queens on top of that rock, but the costumes lose points for not being actual frocks.

    9. The ABBA-solutely Fabulous Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    Mama Mia, here we go again! While this look is honestly iconic, it just isn't the most show-stopping number on the line-up.

    8. The Bus-ty Devil Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    Flawless. We unfortunately don't get a good look at this costume and it doesn't quite compare to its bus-riding predecessor (see below).

    7. The Sia's Going To Swing From You Later Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    Mitzi is literally part of the illuminati in this number, and she lights up our life.

    6. The You've Got Me Feeling Emu-tions Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    Have you ever seen such glamourous emus in your life?

    5. The Frilled-Neck Golden Girls Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    Reptiles may be cold-blooded but this look is on FIRE. Yes to all of it. Yes to the surprise collar pop, yes to the tongues. Slay, lizard queens. Slay.

    4. The Magic Slay Bus Look

    So iconic it was on the goddamn posters.

    3. The Flower Power Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    It's the slow reveal with these floral numbers, from the incredible wigs, to the glam AF jumpsuits and then BAM: the shoes are just more jumpsuit? Yaaaassss.

    2. The Haus Of Opera Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    It's Marie Antoinette meets the Sydney Opera House! And their GODDAMN WIGS GLOW!

    1. The Broken Hill Main-Drag-In-Drag Look

    Gramercy Pictures

    Two words: THONG DRESS.

    And if that wasn't enough: Felicia serving you body, face AND religion in that tiny outfit.

    There's a reason this movie won the Oscar for Best Costumes. ICONIC.
