Movie Icons

  • by

Just as western movies brought jeans to more of the public in the 1930’s and 40’s,  music and film added another cultural dimension to blue jeans in the 1950’s. This time movie icons such as James Dean, Marlon Brando, Elvis. Marilyn Monroe added an edgy, rebellious and sexy allure to jeans which particularly appealed to the teenage/youth culture. Pivotal movies that helped these icons further transform how denim is worn include Marlon Brando in The Wild One (1953), James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause (1955) and Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits (1961).
