Fashion in the 1950s oozed classic, ladylike style, from Audrey Hepburn's graceful elegance to Marilyn Monroe's glamorous sex-appeal. Clothes were designed to enhance and showcase curves and the full skirted evening dress was featured on the Dior catwalk. Another fashion icon, Princess Margaret, was a fan of this opulent style of gown. A list of 1950s fashion icons would not be complete without considering Elizabeth Taylor and her legendary collection of diamonds.
These women were truly fashion icons, defining and redefining the style of a decade. Their influence endures and are still regarded as icons of the fashion world.
