Movies about fashion have a soft place in my heart. They are also a great source for fashion inspiration. Here are some of my go favorites.After a long day at work or a lazy weekend, nothing beats curling up on the couch with your favorite snack (which is anything chocolate if you’re anything like me) and going on a bender of watching influential fashion films.
I consider this movie the original spoof movie; as this flick makes light of teen melodramas. This movie had it all, beautiful cars; even beautiful-er people and swoon worthy clothing. I remember obsessing over knee-high socks, cute mini backpacks, plaid skater skirts and Mary Janes. Boy did I adore the knee-high socks. This movie was really a teen self-help tool it showed you how to get a guy to like you, how talk your way into getting better grades and reinvent yourself.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Audrey Hepburn invented the term LBD. A woman who knows how to accessorize beholds the secret to maximizing your wardrobe and creating distinguished style. Armed with shades pearls and fierce bangs Hepburn makes for the ultimate society girl.
The Devil Wears Prada
Meryl Streep’s portrayal of an unscrupulous fashion editor was uncanny and highly entertaining. This movie is your typical movie about a college grad entering the workforce, that believes they are destined for greatness but has to pay their dues to earn the respect of their peers and superiors. I love the glitz, designer names and the feigning of a behind the scenes look of the fashion industry.
