Making a biopic is not an easy task. You have to choose a period of a celebrity’s life to be reflected in the movie, cast actors who will play the starring roles, make sure they get into character, and most importantly get permission from the celebrity or their family to make a movie about them. But even if you’ve ticked all the boxes, the result can be unpredictable.
When talking about Hollywood divas of the past, we normally recall Vivien Leigh, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe wearing dashing dresses. The gorgeous outfits were usually created by designers of movie companies who stayed in the history of fashion like world-famous couturiers. Every one of these dresses hides a big story, and they even have their own secrets.
Designers and stylists often see the past as a source of inspiration, for example, the bold Marilyn Monroe dresses, or the elegant suits Audrey Hepburn wore. And in the past several years, fashion has been duplicating the tendencies of the 2000s. This is why celebrities regularly appear at red carpet events wearing outfits we have seen before. This is how they pay tribute to great actors and iconic movie characters.
When we watch a romantic movie or series, we want the main heroes to be together, and their wedding is like the cherry on top.

Bridal gowns have come a long way from very formal petticoats and corsets to sleeveless and colorful modern-day wedding dresses. Aside from being a symbol of happily ever after, wedding dresses can tell us a lot about social and cultural norms of a certain era.
Choosing that one special wedding dress is never easy. If you can’t find the design of your dreams in modern magazines, try flipping through some vintage celebrity photos.

Sometimes, costumes in movies and TV series can tell a lot more about characters than even their actions can. But costumes don’t reveal their secrets immediately. As the story unfolds, we often don’t notice what the characters are wearing. That is why it can be a good idea to watch your favorite movie again and pay more attention to the details that you missed at first.
Many celebrities make up stage names to promote their careers. They may do this because their real names aren’t memorable enough, they want to avoid sounding like other celebrities, or they want to draw a line between their working and personal lives.

Throughout history, women have experimented with all kinds of short hairstyles. Flappers had the bob cut. Audrey Hepburn popularized the pixie cut. And the lovely Princess Diana was the undisputed queen of the pageboy cut, so much that some people called it the “Lady Di” style.

Some historians believe that Albert Einstein’s wife made a big contribution to the development of the relativity theory because she was also a mathematician. And for some reason, her involvement was not documented and there is no way to prove this fact. But there have been cases of unfair treatment of women that have been documented. American artist Margaret Keane had to sue her husband who took credit for all of her work, and astrophysicist Susan Jocelyn Bell Burnell didn’t receive the award for her contribution to the discovery of pulsars until several decades later.
