We're all familiar with a little film called "Deep Throat," right?

That notorious movie made unknown Linda Boreman into superstar Linda Lovelace, a woman who came from a conservative upbringing and who changed the face of pornography forever.

The story of Lovelace's career and her tumultuous love life has been made into a film called "Lovelace," starring Amanda Seyfried as Linda, who captures Lovelace's spirit not just in her acting but in her over-the-top sexy '70s and '80s wardrobe.

From lace peasant dresses to sheer blouses and deep-neck tees, Lovelace wore a gamut of fabulous fashions which changed as she moved from the adult film world to her role as an anti-porn activist and mother.

Lovelace, who was 53 years old when she died in a car accident in 2002, came from modest beginnings. Born in the Bronx, New York, the raven-haired beauty went to a Catholic school where she earned the nickname "Miss Holy Holy," a subtle dig at her prim attitude towards boys.

That all changed when she married Chuck Traynor after she graduated high school. Traynor, who was a small-time player in the porno industry, introduced his wife to her new film career which led to the making of "Deep Throat" in 1972.

After only making a few more appearances in small movies, Linda became a spokesperson for the feminist anti-pornography movement and claimed she was abused and coerced into performing in adult films. She left the industry in 1976 after marrying second husband Larry Marchiana and having two children.

To celebrate the release of "Lovelace," let's take a look at Linda's incredible wardrobe:
