SS 1999 in McQueen
The last look in Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 1999 show, spray-painted live by a pair of robots, was an earth-shattering fashion moment when it first hit the runway almost 20 years ago — and it hadn’t lost any of its power when it hit screens this summer in Ian Bonhôte and Petter Ettedgui’s heartbreaking documentary about the iconic designer.

Lily James in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
The Mamma Mia prequel/sequel threw it way back to the summer when Donna (Lily James, as a young Meryl Streep) got pregnant — and got her iconic overalls.

Jane Fonda in Book Club
If the rest of us dressed for literally any social function half as well as Jane Fonda’s Vivian dressed for casual wine-and-Fifty Shades nights, the world would be a better, more glamorous place.

The Fred Rogers Company
Mr. Rogers in Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
Style doesn’t have to be flashy to make an impact. Seeing Fred Rogers in Morgan Neville’s documentary — wrapping himself in a cardigan, as always — was such a warm comfort that we might as well have bundled up our hearts in a cozy knit too.
