Find out about the close relationship of influence between fashion and cinema
We all love a good movie and no matter what the story is or our favorite genre, there is something we share in common and that is that we not only look at how impressive the scenes are, but also at the outfits of our favorite characters.
Throughout the time since the creation of the cinema, we have been able to appreciate wonderful outfits in the skin of great actors and, since it is inevitable to want a little of what they project, the designers have taken it upon themselves to bring it into our hands.
The big screen has been the transmitter of much more than dramas, because its influence has touched the world of fashion in a shocking way, and therefore I invite you to know how it has done.
Does the big screen influence us?
Every time a feature film is released, it not only provokes a social reaction regarding its content, but also causes an influence on the way of dressing, of course, not all the time a film achieves this impact.
But without a doubt, there is a lot of work on the part of great designers who develop the costumes for the characters, since they create an image that transcends beyond the screen, which allows us to connect with new styles.
It is impressive how a coat, a dress or even a simple combination of jeans and a T-shirt can catapult the actor behind this design, which is why the fashion and film industries work very intertwined, since there are many opportunities for success for both.
A clear example of the reach of a look on screen is that of Jodie Foster in her knotted T-shirt and shorts in the 1976 film Taxi Driver. This gave a new style to this fresh and seductive combination that has been used in all the world.
Outfits that left footprints
There is a long list of looks and outfits that stood out beyond the ribbons for which they were created, and if we want to really see the impact these have had on fashion, we must bring out the most popular in history.
These outfits earned a special place in fashion without ever having left the catwalks, revolutionizing even the clothing of entire eras.
Dark coat with black glasses
In Robert Redford's skin we can see a Pecoat coat and dark sunglasses in the movie The 3 Days of the Condor in 1975.
This look was the one that caused the greatest impact among the public, showing an attractive, elegant and modern image for the time, it knew how to set the tone and even today it is still an excellent choice, transcending not only the screen, but time.
Iconic bold white dress
Unquestionably the dresses are a piece that projects all the femininity of the woman, however, few are those who have become a classic fashion icon, a position that wears the outfit with which everyone remembers the multi-faceted Hollywood blonde from the 50s.
Marilyn Monroe could afford to wear beautiful creations, but if we can highlight one of them, it will undoubtedly be her white ruffled dress, by Willian Travilla with which she reflects a unique sensuality and mischief in The Temptation Live Above tape from 1955.
1986 Top Gun gave us one of the most splendid accessories to wear, from the hands of the Ray-ban brand, being modeled on the tape by on Tom Cruise's face.

White sports jacket
A white satin bomber is the outfit that actor Ryan Gosling wears in the 2011 movie Driver, a garment that captivates everyone with its style, modernity and versatility as it is a garment that can be combined for different looks.
This garment left as a result the inspiration for many designers who have worked on their collections based on this style of sports jacket since the premiere of the tape.
Modern black leather outfits
More than just an outfit, the Matrix movie made leather and goth look fashionable by highlighting Carrie-Anne Moss's black, long trench coats and tight vinyl jumpsuit as Trinity.
A wardrobe line that went against what was marked in 1999, presenting an innovative fashion model that greatly influenced the Neo punk style.

Rebellion, youth and style was what Marlon Brando showed us in 1953 Savage by looking like never a Perfect Huntress.
This iconic leather jacket marked an era and even over the years it has not ceased to be a reference in pop culture, being a key garment for modern outfits for both men and women.
Get inspired by the cinema to create new outfits
Many of the garments that we see stand out on the bodies of the actors on the big screen, may be closer than we think, and although we do not want to see ourselves as a faithful and exact copy of their looks, if we can take advantage of their style for our own image.
The important thing is to be attentive to identify that particular outfit that we want to wear on our body, in addition to being detailed and accurate for the occasion in which to wear it, since the look that stands out in the tape is accompanied by a suitable setting.
A very practical way to take advantage of it is by looking at accessories and color combinations, as this can provide us with excellent ideas when designing a new style for our appearance.
The cinema was, is and will continue to be a great setting to highlight fashion, since stories are not only told in words, and it is from there that we will have the opportunity to connect with the characters that we love by inspiring our look by their locker room.
