From glam goths to punk rock princesses: Iconic fashion moments from our favourite Tim Burton films

Thanks to the likes of Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, and countless others, Tim Burton has brought us an array of weirdly wonderful characters over the years. And they have all taught us a number of important lessons, but none more so than this; it’s cool to be a misfit, so long as you always stay true to yourself.

It’s unsurprising, then, that Burton’s films are just as well known for their beautiful, often award-winning, costumes as they are their dark undertones.

So, to celebrate his new film, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (set to hit cinemas in September 2016), we've taken a look back at Burton's stand-out style scenes.

From glamorous goths to punk-rock princesses, click through for our round-up of the absolute best fashion moments from Tim Burton’s most iconic film characters...
