Oscar: Fashion–Keaton, Diane, Annie Hall (1977)

Woody Allen’s 1977 Oscar winner, Annie Hall, had a huge influence on women’s fashion all over the world. It is considered to be the first Hollywood movie that was powerfully influential in Europe and other places.

The gender-bending thrift-shop look, warned by Diane Keaton, defined by idiosyncratic layering of men’s pants, wide ties, suit vests, and floppy hats.

Bloomington’s store began selling Annie Hall-style collections.

Different crafts people take credit for the look, among them Ralph Loren.

The film’s credited costume designer, the late Ruth Morley, was certainly instrumental.

Some suggested that the overall look was a product of collaboration of star Keaton and designer Morley.

In later years, director Allen credited Keaton, claiming that “the Annie Hall look was the exact way that Diane dressed in real life.”
