Killer Style: How to Dress Like A Hitchcock Heroine

Hitchcock, the Oscar-vehicle starring Anthony Hopkins as Hitch and Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, hit select theaters this past weekend. There hasn't been much fashion buzz about the film aside from Scarlett Johansson's Psycho-themed V cover, which focused more on her scream than her clothes (as well it should have), but we've always had a soft-spot for the fashion in Hitchcock's films.

Kim Novak in Vertigo

Novak played two roles in Vertigo, brunette Judy Barton, and blonde Madeleine Elster. Madeleine's husband believes she's possessed--but is she?

Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief

This was Kelly's final film with Hitchcock (she did become a princess, after all), but costume designer Edith Head really made this one count. Kelly plays rich girl Francie and her wardrobe definitely looks the part.

Janet Leigh in Psycho

Janet Leigh plays Marion Crane in one of Hitchcock's most famous films. Duplicate this outfit--but be sure no one is watching you through a creepy secret peephole.

Ingrid Bergman in Notorious

In Notorious, Ingrid Bergman's Alicia Huberman is the daughter of a convicted Nazi spy who then infiltrates a group of Nazis in Brazil post-WWII. That sounds like it's bound to go well...

Carole Lombard in Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Not, in fact, the same plot as the movie that brought Brad and Angie together, Lombard plays Ann Smith, a woman who finds out she's not actually married to her husband. You can relax for this one, though; Mr. & Mrs. Smith was Hitchcock's only comedy.

Eva Marie Saint in North by Northwest

Most people might remember North by Northwest for Cary Grant's scene where he's chased down by a plane (no big deal), but Eva Marie Saint is a babe as Eve Kendall. She gets to see a little action herself on the side of Mount Rushmore. Yikes!

Grace Kelly in Dial M For Murder

In Dial M for Murder, a man arranges to have his wife murdered--doesn't sound too promising for poor Grace Kelly.

Tippi Hedren in The Birds

Hedren would go on to say that she and Hitchcock didn't exactly get along (something about unwanted advances) but she did star in one of his most iconic films.
