** The [[Film/TheGreatGatsby2013 2013 adaptation]] pushes this even further with the modernized depictions of the 1920s, and the ArtDeco motifs. The men's fashions are more or less period accurate on this one. In short, The Great Gatsby Wears Prada.

* In every film adaptation of Literature/TheGreatGatsby, which is set in 1922, the fashion statements are almost always based in the styles of the second half of the 1920s.

* Deliberately done in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', where Mother Gothel's wardrobe is clearly several centuries out of date compared to everyone else's clothing, hinting that [[Film/{{Immortality}} she's been around much longer than she appears]].

** Come to think of it, most of the 1940s hairstyles, like pompadours, were inspired by Gibson Girl hairstyles.

* Susannah York's makeup and short, tousled hairstyle in ''Film/BattleOfBritain'' are clearly products of 1969, when the film was made, rather than 1940, when it was set.

* Averted with MadMen, the costume designer Janie Bryant worked very hard to get the clothes of the era just right for every character's taste, social class, sensibilities, age, and occupation along with fitting them to recurring themes in an episode. She even went right down to the women's underwear to stay period-accurate (those aren't spanx or elastic pantyhose, those are are actual girdles and bras constructed in the costume department).

* ''Disney/Frozen'' is supposedly set sometime in the early 19th century, yet the skirts of both female leads' costumes don't even show a hint of crinoline. They either fall in tight folds that flounce nicely when moving, like Anna's ball gown, or straight down, like Elsa's coronation dress. A cut scene from an earlier draft of the movie showed the sisters together in a dressing room where Anna tries on a tight laced corset (as fashion standards of the actual time period dictated), possibly lampshading the [[ImpossibleHourglassFigure physical features]] both Elsa and Anna display.

* You'd think the ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' had sailed and sunk in 1997 based on Jack's hair in the movie.
