Rose's Broading Suit from Titanic
The first time we see young Rose, played by Kate Winslet, she wearing a nautical inspired suit that has vertical and horizontal pinstripes. While the suit reads proper Edwardian lady, the contrasting strips and the pops of purple reveal a spirited young women. The scene is memorable and the suit is smart but the real star on the costume is the hat.
