Do you recognize these outfits?

Most of the time, movie costumes are just costumes: the kind of clothes that a real person would only ever wear on Halloween, or for an ill-advised musical performance at the office Christmas party. They work solely in the context of the movie and the character who wears them. You'd remember, for example, Austin Powers' purple velvet suit and the horn-rimmed glasses that helped make the character so iconic—but they're not something you'd ever wear in life (unless maybe you're Daniel Padilla at the Star Magic Ball).

But other times, apart from representing a movie character, costumes can actually be style statements that we can take cues from in real life. Here, some of the most iconic movie costumes that made the characters who wore them cinema's most stylish. How many can you identify?
