Get the (very sexy) Look: The Best Lingerie in Movies
I’m a huge fan of classic movies from the 1950s and early 1960s. The movie stars of that era were so captivating, and set the archetypes of sex appeal for decades to come. I don’t think women have since been as sexy as Elizabeth Taylor and Anne Bancroft were in films like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and The Graduate.
But they’ve certainly come close.
Naturally, good costuming is essential to achieve major screen-siren status, which is where great lingerie comes into the picture. In more recent films like Moulin Rouge and The Women, we gained a renewed appreciation for the power of a corset, and January Jones walked a fine line between sweet and sexy in her white lingerie look from X-Men: First Class.
Then there’s that other kind of sexy—the gamine, slightly unaware sexy of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Who could forget that scene when Holly Golightly answers the door for Paul in a man’s tuxedo shirt? She was instantaneously so glamorous, disheveled, sexy, and vulnerable—you couldn’t help but fall for her.
Whether you feel sexiest in an hourglass-forming corset or a slinky slip, a classic lace bra or a tuxedo-like sleep shirt, you, too, can channel that big-screen glamour in the bedroom.
