    Sharon Stone, Basic Instinct

    Sharon Stone perfected minimalist, '90s chic in this crisp, short shift dress with a roll-neck and high-cut armholes when she made a quick, provocative wardrobe change before going downtown for police questioning. Made of winter-white wool crepe by Ellen Mirojnick, its innocent color became anything but during an infamous interrogation scene that left undergarments at an, er, minimum.
