Divine originated the role, but John Travolta definitely put his smooth dance moves to good use when he shimmied his way through the remake, and now everyone from Harvey Fierstein to our own Phill Jupitus have squeezed into the Turnblad fat suit. His is possibly our favourite outfit choice of all our cross-dressers — never has a former bodybuilder looked so regal in a floor-length pastel pink smock dress.

Only in recent decades have there been dramatic films which included cross-dressing, possibly because of strict censorship of American films until the mids. One early exception was Alfred Hitchcock 's thriller Murder!
