The 1953 film adaptation of the famous musical stars none other than Marilyn Monroe, who plays diamond-loving showgirl Lorelei Lee. While Lorelei prefers the finer things courtesy of the men in her life, BFF and fellow showgirl Dorothy Shaw (played by Jane Russell) would rather date the hotties regardless of their wealth. There's plenty of over-the-top baubles and elegant fashion in this film, including the iconic pink gown Monroe wore for the "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" musical number.

Lindsay Lohan made her mark in film and fashion with her role as Cady Heron in the cult classic Mean Girls. The film was destined for success—Tina Fey wrote the screenplay based on a self-help book about social cliques in high school, and from that, the Plastics were born. Cady starts off as an outsider with no sense of style and makes her way into the popular group, eventually becoming the Queen Bee. The Plastics wear pink on Wednesdays, and almost every fashion trend of the 2000s makes a cameo throughout the comedy. It's no wonder this group of fictitious ladies has even appeared in fashion memes.

The story of Staten Island secretary Tess McGill, played by Melanie Griffith, takes place in an office on Wall Street and captures the fashion trends of the decade perfectly. Griffith's character gets a serious makeover as she transforms her style to become a more refined, suit-wearing businesswoman.
