50 of Horror Cinema’s Most Fashionable Moments

Flat-out terrifying, but fashion forward, too.

We have a new movie to add to the fashion-forward horror cinema canon. Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon is now in theaters. Set in the fashion world, Refn’s film finds an aspiring model trying to make her way in beauty-obsessed Los Angeles where the women around her will do whatever it takes to get ahead. The film amassed a following well before its release, thanks to Refn’s stunning visuals and teasers of lead star Elle Fanning’s avant-garde costumes. She’s in good company in horror cinema, which may be one of the most underrated genres when it comes to best-dressed characters. With horror filmmakers constantly pushing limits, the genre has produced some fascinating fashions and iconic sartorial moments.
