Every movie and television show has a wardrobe team who is in charge of dressing the cast. In some cases, they hit it right on the mark. In others, mistakes are made. Here are some unforgivable wardrobe mistakes that should have never made it on screen.
In this scene, Orlando Bloom, who plays Paris, is shown with a frilly umbrella on his chariot to provide shade. Homeric warriors would not have wanted anything so frilly around, and the umbrella wasn’t even invented yet.
Pulp Fiction: The Bullet Holes
Pulp fiction is a great movie, except for one thing. The scene where Vincent is reciting Bible verses and bullets start flying isn’t right. Even before the shooting begins, Jules and Vincent are already covered in bullets. How did nobody catch that?
Back To the Future: He Played a Guitar That Didn’t Exist
In Back to the Future, Marty McFly gets on stage and plays Johnny B. Goode on a Gibson ES-345 guitar. The only problem with this is that it didn’t exist yet. The scene took place in 1955, and those guitars didn’t come out until 1958.
Pretty Woman: A Breast Is Exposed
Julia Roberts, who played Vivian in Pretty Woman, had always been adamant about not doing any nude scenes. This is why when you could see Julia’s breast through her gown in the movie, it was clear that it was a wardrobe malfunction.
Vanilla Sky: Nip Slip
In Vanilla Sky, Cameron Diaz’ character, Julie, is in bed with Tom Cruise’s character, David. She is wearing a sheer gown, and when she slides up, her nipple slips out. She catches it quickly and fixes the gown, but they kept shooting. This gave viewers something to look at.
Pirates Of The Caribbean III: Singapore
Pirates Of The Caribbean III revolves around the Black Pearl crew heading to Singapore in the 1700s. The only problem with this is that Singapore didn’t exist until 1819.
Singin’ In the Rain: Her Dress
Debbie Reynolds played Kathy Selden in Singin’ In the Rain. While the movie was great, there was one wardrobe issue in a scene. Her pink dress was gorgeous, but it definitely wouldn’t have been worn in the 20s.
Forest Gump: The Iron
In the scene where Forest is reunited with Jenny and meets his son for the first time, there is an iron in the background. One second, the iron is standing up on the ironing board. The next, it is laying down. How did it move?
Titanic: Rose’s Beauty Mark
In Titanic, Kate Winslet’s character, Rose, has a beauty mark on the left side of her face. In later scenes, it is on the right side. How did nobody catch that?
I Dream Of Jeannie: The Stand-In
In I Dream Of Jeannie, Barbara Eden played both Jeannie and her evil twin sister. So that both characters could be on camera at the same time, they used a stand-in. In the season 5 episode, My Sister, the Homemaker, they accidentally shot the stand-in’s face and left it in the episode.
The Ten Commandments: Underwires and Turquoise
In the 1956 fil, the Ten Commandments, Anne Baxter played Nefretiri. She looked great in the film, but in ancient Egypt, underwire bras and the color turquoise didn’t exist. Someone should have brushed up on their knowledge of ancient Egypt.
Raiders Of the Lost Ark: Jeans
Raiders Of the Lost Ark was set in 1936, and most of the extras were dressed appropriately. Unfortunately, there was one extra standing in a pair of jeans, and he just didn’t fit in.
Pearl Harbor: Bare Legs
Pearl Harbor was set in 1941, at a time where women dressed very conservatively. The women in the film had bare legs, which back then, would have been covered with nylons. Since nylon was in short supply during the war, they would have at least painted seams on their legs to make it look like they were wearing nylons.
The Notebook: Lon’s Hair
In The Notebook, Allie had a relationship with Lon Hammond, Jr. In some scenes, his hair is brown, and in some, his hair is black.
I Know What You Did Last Summer: Helen’s Goodies
In I Know What You Did Last Summer, Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character, Helen, is climbing a ladder. When the cameraman gets a particular shot, you can see her goodies up her dress.
Terminator: Remastered Issues
In the movie, Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger approaches a group of teens, naked. You can see his rear end in the film, but because the picture quality was poor in the 80s, you couldn’t see much. Thanks to the remastered version, you can see more than Arnold may have wanted you to see.
Saving Private Ryan
Saving Private Ryan is an amazing movie. Unfortunately, there was one problem. The soldiers in the film are wearing black boots, but during that time period, they wore brown boots.
Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves
Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves raked in a lot of money at the box office. The only problem with the film was the scene where Robin Hood’s friend proudly shows off his telescope. Unfortunately, the film was set in 1194, and the telescope wasn’t invented until the 17th century.
Captain America: The First Avenger
Most people don’t pay attention to anything other than the action going on in superhero movies. In this movie, there is one mistake that you can’t miss. Soldier Jim Morita is wearing an earpiece. While this would be normal today, this scene was set during World War II.
