15. Angelina Jolie in The Other Woman
Angelina plays mystery lady, Elise, in The Other Woman. And all her costumes in the film are noteworthy, created with a modern take on retro fashion, but her floor-length white cocktail dress is especially iconic. ‘The idea was to create a world of quiet elegance, reflected in simplicity of line and colour’, says Oscar winning costume designer Colleen Atwood about the dress in an interview.
16. Amber Heard in Rum Diaries
Johnny Depp’s movie The Rum Diaries has the gorgeous Amber Heard looking angelic and ethereal in this lace white mini-dress. She wears a lot of white in the film, and while we’re at it, can we please look at her white chiffon beach dress that knots into orange? Wow.
17. Rosie Huntington in Transformers 3
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who plays Carly in Transformers 3, Dark of the Moon, wore a stunningly amazing mini draped-neck white cocktail dress. And I loved the outfit paired with blue heels/pumps and a red handbag. The dress not only made headlines popularizing the Victoria’s Secret model’s sizzling hotness factor, but also inspired many replicas. I wouldn’t mind wearing one actually!
18. Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises
I personally really love this feminine flowy white midi dress Anne Hathaway wore in The Dark Knight Rises, where she played Catwoman. Love how she wore it with the red lips, chocolate-brown hair, turquoise necklace and Roman-style flats.
19. Kate Hudson in Something Borrowed
Kate Hudson’s short girly white dress in Something Borrowed has inspired tons of replicas. It has criss-cross top, and is very feminine, ‘sweet-sixteen’ sort of way.
20. Jennifer Lopez in The Back Up Plan
Playing a hot single pregnant woman that goes on to have a relationship, Jennifer Lopez wore this sexy figure-hugging knee-length white number in one of the scenes.
