40 Dresses With Their Own Wikipedia Entries (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We know you can't forget Björk's swan dress. Or Lady Gaga's meat dress. There are some things the mind simply can't unsee. And there are other iconic outfits we love revisiting, like Audrey Hepburn's flawless "Breakfast at Tiffany's" Givenchy number and Princess Diana's jaw-dropping wedding dress.

We here at HuffPost Style love to become experts in intriguing ensembles like these, so we've turned to Wikipedia to tell us everything we always wanted to know (but were too afraid to ask) about Marilyn Monroe's "Seven Year Itch" dress and more. These detailed entries include fun tidbits like the costs, the controversies and the cultural references that followed.

Click through the titles to read up on these looks below. Some of these Wikipedia articles are "stubs," meaning the entry leaves a lot to be desired. Maybe it could use a contribution from you.

Which dresses from this year's awards circuit do you think will wind up with entries of their own?
