'The Eyes of Laura Mars'

Two models wearing sexy lingerie beneath full-length fur coats fight like hungry cheetahs, while their collided cars burn in New York's Columbus Circle. A dream sequence? Nah. Just another decadent fashion shoot in "Eyes of Laura Mars," a schlocky 1978 thriller beloved by fashion designers like Michael Kors and slaves to style. "It's the core of that period's fashion iconography," says designer Jeremy Scott. "It's absurd and dramatic, and high fashion had the license to be that."<br>

Faye Dunaway, playing a photographer who juxtaposes violence with vogue, stalks around in plaid capes, silk blouses and a different chapeau in every scene, thanks to costume designer Theoni Aldredge, who also oversaw the look of "Network" and won an Oscar for "The Great Gatsby."<br>
