Keira beats Audrey?

This just in from WGSN:

The bias-cut emerald green dress sported by Keira Knightley in hit 2007 film Atonement, has been voted the best film costume of all time in a survey run by Sky Movies and InStyle magazine.

Worn by Knightley’s character, Cecilia Tallis, in the period drama written by Ian McEwan, the backless silk gown beats Marilyn Monroe’s infamous white dress from The Seven Year Itch, which took second place, and Audrey Hepburn’s little black Givenchy dress from Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which was third.

Also included in the top 10 are Olivia Newton-John’s skintight trousers in Grease, Kate Winslet’s blue gown in Titanic, Diane Keaton’s tie and waistcoat in Annie Hall, Nicole Kidman’s corset in Moulin Rouge, Liza Minnelli’s stockings and bowler hat in Cabaret, Cate Blanchett’s regal gown in Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Vivien Leigh’s billowing dress in Gone with the Wind.

Art and commerce

Is it just me or is there really a Keith Haring trend bubbling under? These menswear outfits from the McQ by Alexander McQueen SS08 collection remind me of my interview at St Martins for the art foundation course many years (or even decades) ago. Asked who my favourite artist was I stumbled “Um, Keith Haring… for his use of colour” before tailing off unconvincingly. I didn’t get in.
