10 Wardrobe Mistakes Film Makers Hoped No One Would Notice

If a movie is interesting enough, it can get away with a few blunders here and there. We're supposed to be paying attention to the plot line, rather than what the characters wear or the props they hold, so most of us will miss the little details that make up a movie.

Here are 10 wardrobe malfunctions that you shouldn't feel bad about not catching.  

10. Django Unchained (2012)

Django Freeman, played by Jamie Foxx, looks badass in those shades; however, sunglasses like that would not have existed in the mid-1800s.

They'd probably look a little more like this:

9. Braveheart (1995)

If you have never seen this movie, you'll know it's about Scotland the moment you see the cast members wearing kilts. However, Scots didn't wear kilts in the 13th century. That style of fashion became popular in the 17th century. Talk about stereotypes!

8. Julius Caesar (1953)

I'm sure women in Ancient Rome didn't wear bullet bras that were popular in the 1950s.

7. Gladiator (2000)

I highly doubt that gladiators in Ancient Rome wore Lycra shorts under their tunics.

6. Pearl Harbor (2001)

The attack on Pearl Harbor happened during World War II, so when looking at the image below, it's hard to imagine women in this time period dressing like that. They would dress much more conservatively, and would most likely be wearing nylon socks. These socks may have been in short supply at the time, but woman of high status would have no problem in getting their hands on a pair.

You'll laugh at yourself for never noticing these next ones!

5. American Hustle (2013)

This solid gold Rolex GMT Master II with a ceramic bezel was not made until 25 years after the time period the movie was supposed to be set in. It's not a big deal, but it's still a wardrobe blunder!

4. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

More like raiders of the lost extra. That man wearing a white T-shirt and jeans definitely does not blend in with the other cast members.

3. Troy (2004)

That beach umbrella they got there sure is beautiful! Too bad parasols were introduced in 5th century BCE, which would be approximately 800 years after Troy was set.

2. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)

Was Robin Hood's companion, Azeem a time traveler? If not, it's highly unlikely there was a telescope in the year 1194, because that piece of equipment wasn't invented until the early 17th century.

1. Pirates of the Caribbean (2003)

The film is set sometime between 1714 and 1727, so the Royal Navy uniforms should not look like it came from the late 1740s.
