The Man From UNCLE Movie Fashion: 60s Style Dresses

Discover the best actress looks from latest Hollywood movie, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Set in the 60s, The Man From UNCLE Movie Fashion is all about vintage!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of watching the latest Hollywood movie, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.… 2015 has been a year of guy-flicks, but this movie is hands-off the most fashionable movie of the year. Let’s check out some of their best looks. Here’s The Man From UNCLE Movie Fashion!! Set in the 60s, the film features some sharp looks and super-gorgeous vintage fashion.


Movie Plot

Set in Rome in 1963, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is about the unlikely joint mission of a CIA agent Napoleon Solo and a KGB operative Illya Kuryakin. Gaby Teller, a car mechanic, joins them as they reluctantly team up to uncover a criminal organization. Gaby’s long-lost father is being used by this organization to construct a nuclear bomb. Their journey through Rome makes them meet the deceitful femme fatale Victoria Vinciguerra. All three in the mission have hidden agendas, but they must work together to stop the threat of nuclear proliferation.

The movie has some gorgeous faces – Solo is played by Henry Cavill, the guy who plays Superman. Illya is played by Armie Hammer, of the Winklevoss twins fame from the Social Network. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander plays the fiesty Gaby. And Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki of the Great Gatsby plays Victoria Vinciguerra.

The costumes are elegant haute couture pieces and some vintage clothes too. The key actors’ and actresses’ characters had panache and charisma. Both women and men were impeccably dressed and it was a pleasure for the eyes to watch their style.


The Man From UNCLE: Women’s Fashion

For an action movie, it’s very unusual to find such attention to not just female fashion but also their characters. Both Alicia and Elizabeth Debicki play important roles and play them with flare.

Their styles, as their characters, are very different, but both have costumes with clean silhouettes and bold 60’s accessories.

Costume designer Joanna Johnston was inspired by the late 60s for the costumes, despite the movie story being set in 1963. “I’m absolutely crazy about a two-year period — ’67 and ’68 are magnificent in fashion,” Johnston said in an interview for Refinery29. “It’s a pocket before it moves into the ’70s vibe and after the early-’60s thing. I honed in on that because Guy (Ritchie) didn’t really mind. He didn’t want it to look academically anything, so he gave me a free reign. He wanted it to look just cool and sexy.


Alicia Vikander – The Best Looks from The Man From UNCLE

Here’s the best looks of Alicia Vikander who plays Gaby. She wears structured minidresses with no belts. Her shoes throughout the film are of this loafer-inspired chunky low-heel type. And her accessories throughout remain solid-colored earrings and one bold ring with an engagement ring. She gets side-swept bangs with her signature side ponytail. Plus thick false eyelashes!

She starts in the drab overalls at her car repair workshop with a broad belt. How cute is that head scarf over poofy hair tied into a side ponytail? the_man_from_uncle_solo_gaby_casual_dress_bandana_head_scarf_mechanic_first_scene_

And then she quickly transforms into the Fashion Spy!! Check out this mini-dress in white and orange. She accessorizes it with a white handbag and cap and rust-colored shoes.


The next scene has Alicia Vikander in this cute eggshell dress with a striped texture and matching early Fall overcoat. She pairs it with matching earrings and shoes.

Here she wears a color-blocked dress in white and green with a white sun hat with multi-color earrings and a yellow ring and handbag.uncle_movie_fashion_gaby_illya_green_white_dress_party_hat_beautiful_look_best_suit_sceneAnd she pairs it with a white overcoat too! I love this outfit!uncle_movie_fashion_gaby_illya_green_white_dress_ring_hotel_scene__This helicopter scene has her wearing a backless print mini-dress in orange and white. Alicia Vikander pairs it with a brown handbag.the_man_from_uncle_gaby_orange_dress_earrings_sunglasses_hairstyle_makeup_helicopter_scenethe_man_from_uncle_gaby_illya_orange_dress_hairstyle_shoty_romantic_hote_sceneCheck out her accessories that are matched to the dress – white earrings and an orange statement ring. Plus notice how she has a messiness about her hair and hardly wears makeup. A very natural easy-to-maintain throughout the day but elegant look.

Here’s the climax scene in which Alicia wears a white mini-dress with silver stilettos and round sunglasses with a white frame.

These sunglasses are really edgy and she kept the rest of the accessories undertoned. Check out her white earrings, red enamel ring and cuff wrist watch.uncle_movie_fashion_illya_solo_gaby_climax_scene_womens_mens_latest_trends_sunglasses_white_dress


Elizabeth Debicki – The Best Looks from The Man From UNCLE

The femme fatale, Victoria Vinciguerra played by Elizabeth Debicki has style completely opposite of that of Gaby Teller (Alicia Vikander). Victoria wears lots of makeup highlighting her eyes. She has a sharp jawline and ties her hair into buns. Her hairstyle punctuates her sharp features.

Here’s her first outfit in the movie from a party scene. Even for a day outfit, it’s very dressy. Nearly all her outfits are in black and white, with loads of pearl jewelry and statement rings and earrings.

Here she wears a kaftan-like dress with embellished collar and arm-cuffs. Check out how she wears thick gold chains with her diamond earrings and rings like a boss!!

the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_black_white_dress_party_earrings_jewelry_makeupIn this scene, Elizabeth Debicki wears a black jumpsuit (or is it just trousers) with a sheer ruffle top and shimmery waistcoat-like top.the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_black_trousers_white_ruffle_shirt_hotel_scene_earrings_shoes_bag As she goes about her devious plan of sedating our spy, she lounges about in this vintage-like belted maxi dress with color-blocking design. the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_black_white_dress_torture__maxi_jewelry_makeup_hairstyle_sceneDoes she ever have a hair out of place? the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_black_white_dress_office_torture_scene_earrings_jewelry_makeup She pairs her black and white dress with her signature pearl bubble earrings and Greek-design gold cuffs. the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_black_white_dress_torture_scene Yet another color-blocking dress, this time with cowl-neck. Elizabeth Debicki mixes up loose and well-fitted dresses like she can pull off anything! Just love it!!the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_black_white_shirt_dress_bomb_scene_pearls

This is my favorite outfit of hers. It’s a belted overcoat-style dress thingie with slitted sleeves (her party dress also had slitted sleeves). Round sunglasses and a printed head-scarf. She pairs her solitaire and pearl rings with her gold Greek-style cuffs again.the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_black_white_coat_dress_boat_scene_scarf_sunglasse In this climax scene Elizabeth again pulls off an oversized dress with aplomb. It’s a grey trench coat, cinched at the waist with a broad belt. She pairs it with her head-scarf and a mix of gold and pearl accessories – watch, earrings and rings. And she wears the trenchcoat over a checked button-down shirt. Super cool outfit. the_man_from_uncle_movie_fashion_victoria_trench_coat_climax_boat_telephone_scene_rings_makeup
