The Union Jack Dress

Did you see Kim Kardashian wearing Marylin Monroe’s iconic nude dress to the Met Gala? Marylin famously wore it to sing “Happy Birthday Mr President”. 

I would call it one of the most iconic dresses of all time? But others don’t share my opinion. The Union Jack dress, famously worn by Geri Horner while on stage with the Spice Girls at the 1997 Brits, has been named as the most iconic outfit of all time by Nasty Gal.

Geri had originally planned to wear a classic black dress, but switched to the Union Jack number at the last minute, with her sister reportedly sewing the flag element on hours before the event.

All anyone could talk about back then was Geri’s dress. And those red Buffalo platform boots. I still want them.

Lady Gaga’s famous “meat dress” – which saw her don a dress, hat, boots and purse made of raw meat in 2010 as a statement about “one’s need to fight for what one believes in” – ranked highly.

Also scoring lots of votes was Liz Hurley’s safety pin dress (aka THAT dress), which she accompanied Hugh Grant to a movie premiere wearing.
