An interesting aspect of a period piece is the outfits featured.
In Titanic, the dresses which Kate Winslet as Rose wears are a standout feature of the film. They showcase what the rich members of society could afford to wear, aswell as being a glimpse into fashion of the early 1900s.
In looking at all the dresses in the film, I have listed them in my personal order of least to most favourite. Please let me know what order you would place these dresses in!

9. Elevator Dress
As we only see the elevator dress for a matter of seconds on screen, it has to go last.
8. Heaven Dress
Again, another dress we only see for a few seconds. Plain, but very classy.
7. Deck Dress
As beautiful as this dress is, yellow is a really hard colour to pull off. Kate Winslet manages it, but I fear many others wouldn’t.
6. Arrival Dress
This outfit is very unique from the other dresses that Rose wears. However, it does look slightly impractical in terms of sitting/walking/using the bathroom.
5. Sinking Dress
Another plain dress, but still very elegant on Rose during the stressful moments of the film.
4. First Sight Dress
Lace works for Rose. It really does. With a beautiful red rose on the waistband.
3. Jump Dress
A darker, evening dress for Rose. The beading compliments the red, and Rose still looks amazing at the point of suicide!
2. Flying Dress
Possibly the most recognisable dress from the film, which is worn during the famous ‘flying’ scene.
1. Dinner Dress
Perhaps the dinner dress is my favourite, as it is included in one of the best scenes in the film (3rd Class Irish Party!). Perfection on screen.
