There have been so many epic style moments on screen over the years that I thought I would talk about some of my personal favourites. I’ve never been one of those women who dresses in one particular style day in, day out. I really like to try out different things, so my favourite epic style moments on screen are quite eclectic…
Madonna, Desperately Seeking Susan
I was born smack bang in the middle of the 70s, so I grew up totally in love with Madonna—her music, her style, her attitude, everything. I even had a Madonna scrap book back then lol. But one of my absolute all time favourites style moments was the way she looked in Desperately Seeking Susan. To me, this look just summed up everything about 80s style. The lace, cropped vests, the multitude of layered jewellery, the bow in her hair, odd earrings… I’m still in awe of her style when I look at it now. In fact, perhaps it’s time I watched it again. It’s been years lol! Desperately Seeking Susan is available to rent on Amazon Prime.
Mädchen Amick, Witches of East End
I was absolutely gutted when this series was cut short after only a couple of seasons. I still can’t understand why, because it was so freaking fabulous! Anyway, from the moment Mädchen Amick appeared on screen, I just LOVED her style. Okay, maybe not from the very first moment because she was actually naked lol. But I love her dark vibe, she wore lots of deep colours, kimonos and lace bras on show. She was just one cool chick. Oh, and that emerald necklace? Awesome! If you’ve not seen the Witches of East End, it’s also available on Amazon Prime.
Kylie Minogue, Love at First Sight
OMG I so wanted to dress like Kylie when I first saw this video. I just loved how totally cool she looked in her simple white vest (tank top) with the black bra beneath it, baggy combats and pointy yellow stilettos! There’s not really much more to say about it, is there? Apart from Kylie ROCKS!
Emma Thompson, Late Night
I watched this a couple of months ago and I spent most of the time ogling Emma’s outfits. Her character is probably one of the best characters I’ve ever watched on film…I just loved her. Have you seen it? If you haven’t, you need to watch it. It is one of the best chick flicks ever, and her style is so freaking cool. TOTALLY different from any of the epic style moments on screen I’ve already mentioned lol! Late Night is free to watch if you’re an Amazon Prime user.
Jennifer Grey, Dirty Dancing
Now this is probably a bit of a weird one, but the scene where Patrick Swayze is sitting down watching Jennifer Grey learn to dance with his actual dance partner (the one who was pregnant). She’s wearing black tights with silver heels and a striped tank top. It sounds ridiculous but I always thought she just looked super gorgeous in that get-up! Do you know what I mean? If you watch the video, above. It’s on at about 1.30. If you’re in the mood to watch the movie now, you can rent it on Amazon Prime.
So, there’s five of my favourite epic style moments on screen. I avoided all the usual ones like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Clueless. I wanted to share epic moments that perhaps aren’t so well remembered. There are more, so I’ll probably do a follow up to this, I might even make it a series! So, stay tuned to see what else I have in store for you. And now I must go and read up on my new camera manual!! Yes, my new camera arrived this morning and I’m so excited! If you’d like to follow my photographic art journey, I’ve decided to document it on my other blog (and keep this one purely for style and lifestyle). So please follow me over there if you’re interested (and on my other Insta account)! Now let’s see what you’ve all been up for the Neverending Style Link-Up this week!
Last week’s favourite was Jill from Doused in Pink who wore the most adorable little gingham dress with the most fabulous Doc Marten sandals! So please check it out if you haven’t already!

I’m definitely going to check out Late Night Suzy. I’m surprised there’s no Sex And The City mentioned here! Have you watched it? xx
Suzy, this was such a fun post! OMG, I love every single style that Madonna ever wore! But DSS is probably one of my favorites as far as costumes go! I think I need to watch that movie again. It has been about a million years!
I must admit I have never heard of most of these shows or movies, but I do agree that TV/Movies can be great places for fashion inspiration. Have you ever watched the new Netflix show “Emily in Paris”. It is such a charming show, and the fashion is to die for!
It is interesting to see with styles struck you. I haven’t seen any of these though apart from Dirty Dancing of course so I knew which scene you were talking about.
A couple of my favorites have been the movie The Devil Wears Prada and a cable TV show called Younger. Thanks for sharing yours and for hosting.
This was fun! I, of course, immediately start thinking who inspired me. It was The Cure and Siouxie and the Banshees. So music icons for me! Have a great weekend!
Dirty Dancing on of my favourites, I always wanted to be a dancer – lol. Thanks for hosting. Jacqui x
What a great post idea! I saw the title and Dirty Dancing pic in the Fancy Friday Link party and thought, “Yes! That’ll be a fun post!”
But, then, the first thing I saw was Desperately Seeking Susan and was like, “YEEEEESSSSSS”. And, now I really want to watch it because it’s been forever since I’ve seen it so, THANK YOU for my lazy Saturday movie!!
Have a great weekend!
Loved this post. Must watch Late Night with Emma Thompson. Love her too.
