Leslie Caron “Gigi” iconic signature plaid “schoolgirl” complete outfit including cape and hat from Gigi. (MGM, 1958) This memorable film won nine Oscars, including best costume design for Cecil Beaton. Offered here is the most iconic and recognizable complete outfit for the star, Leslie Caron, in the title role. From the time she is introduced on screen, and for the next 24 minutes of screen time, we see her only in this delightful combination of a green and red plaid jacket with green braid frog closures, matching pleated skirt, off-white blouse with lace trim collar and tux pleat front, plus the original straw hat labeled “Leslie Carron” (sic) and finally, the magnificent green wool coat with capelet over shoulders, brown satin lining and green braid trim. In this outfit, worn with and without the coat, we (and Louis Jourdan as her suitor) learn to know and love this girl Gigi before she then begins to dress as an adult later in the film.
