Top Lingerie Moments in Film and TV

10 things

Larisa Oleynik (10 Things I Hate About You)

“You don’t buy black lingerie unless you want someone to see it”

While there are many iconic lines in this movie, this one easily takes the cake in my book. However, we at Derriere de Soie subscribe to the philosophy that you should be able to wear beautiful things for yourself, and not simply others. While you can debate as to whether there is any truth to this statement, it’s definitely not something one easily forgets.

Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde)

Well it’s clear from this photo that this is an outfit that perhaps only Elle Woods could truly rock, even if it is Halloween.
easy a

Emma Stone  (Easy A)

Who could forget the first time Olive emerges in her new Scarlett “A” embellished wardrobe? The only thing that could possibly top this literary allusion is the multitude of 80’s movie references.


Katherine Heigl (One For The Money)

Heigl’s character in this movie was a former manager of the lingerie department at Macy’s, so obviously the staff here can relate to her, although during the movie she was unemployed and had turned to bounty hunting. There is however, another connection. She is shown wearing a purple Chantelle demi bra, which we actually currently have in the store in a watermelon color.

Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl)

Gossip Girl, with its bountiful designer fashions, didn’t cut any corners when it came to selecting lingerie for its characters. With all of these incredible choices to pick from with Blair, it was impossible to make a decision on just one. This list was originally intended to only contain moments from film, but it would just feel wrong to leave these ensembles without a mention.

rocky horror

Susan Sarandon (Rocky Horror Picture Show)

Definitely the most simple  on this list, but also one of the most memorable. Janet wore a basic white bra and bottoms that have added to its timelessness. Her’s is easily one of the most recognizable costumes from the 1975 cult classic.


Anne Bancroft (The Graduate).

And last but not least, Mrs. Robinson herself. Need I say more?
