  1. Fist pump for Christopher Lee! I also love Frank Langella, and I have to give it to MoHub for her choice also. :)

  2. Louis Jourdan, IMHO best version of the novel Dracula. TV vampire, Geraint Wyn Davies in Forever Knight

  3. I love Natasia Demetriou as Nadja from What We Do in the Shadows! Not 100% Frock Flick, but come on. Costumes are better than White Queen&Princess🤭🤭

  4. Frank Langella.

    I also saw him in Dangerous Liasons, on stage, as Valmont— and the moment he appeared, you could see every woman in the audience sit on the edge of her seat, instantly mesmerized. Amazing presence that his role as Dracula almost caught on film.

    ::fans self::

  5. OMG, I also can’t believe this topic has never been covered here!! Re your list: I AGREE!!! I never even heard of the Julie Delpy version of the Bathory tale, but I love her in everything and also, she is just exquisitely beautiful–even in a burlap sack, even on a Tuesday. Re Antonio Banderas as Armand: SO RIGHT!! Absolutely NOTHING like book Armand, but he was his own thing in the movie. That whole movie was its own thing and peerless. Re Gary Oldman: He is MY OG Dracula. I will FOREVER be in love with him based on his Dracula alone, even though he is AN AMAZING actor and attractive in other roles. Whenever I watch that version, I always cross “oceans of time” to my young self who saw that film at the movies on my 15th birthday with friends!!!

    So, I can only ADD to your list because I agree with all your choices. I can’t rank these, but I also LOVE: Tom Cruise as Lestat; Sam Reid as Lestat; Claes Bang as Dracula (I LOVED his “cliche” costume in the first episode); Luke Evans as Dracula; all of Dracula’s brides in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Basically, I’m a sucker for most vampire stories–movies, TV, etc. So, yes, yes, yes! Bite me!! As an honorable mention I’ll add Gemma Arterton in Byzantium, which I haven’t seen yet, but I love her because she is sooo awesome. From the trailer the movie takes place in both the past (with passable costumes) and the present. Also, it’s by Neil Jordan and he’s never made a bad movie. LOVE this post!!!

  6. The costumes during flashbacks are bloody awful, but somebody has to put in a word for the Scourge of Europe: Angel, Darla, Spike and Drusilla, all from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Actually, Darla does have a couple of nice frocks. The extras, though… ::shudder::
