Hollywood 1950s- Plaid button-ups stepped in to Hollywood in the early 1950s. In 1951, the feminine icon, Elizabeth Taylor kept her style polished with a plaid shirt in one of the scenes from the movie A Place In the Sun. Again in 1954, acting in the movie Sabrina, Audrey Hepburn sported a plaid shirt with shorts characterizing her sailing outfit.
