Audrey Hepburn

Top 8 Must-See Fashion Films

We love movies, but sometimes we forget to praise the ones about the wonderful theater of labels and love. Now, every film has style, but which particular ones delve into the beauty and brashness of such a world? Well, we served up eight films (or movies) that make us drool. There's nothing like inspiration of now and then to spark the tiniest details of your love for this industry. Whether you're channeling Audrey Hepburn's mod style (hi, Beyoncé) or yearning to become a fashion editor, these films can teach, taunt and motivate you in every scene. The marriage of film and fashion is one that is quite monogamous, and they do let us know in on the union every once in awhile.

See which films ones we love and why we love them so much...

The September Issue (2009)
Want to see why we love Anna Wintour so much? Check out this documentary of the biggest annual issue of Vogue and it's leading lady. The craziness of closing an issue, the photoshoots and even the discussion of big bucks comes into play with this film. Most importantly, you learn a lot about why Miss Wintour runs a tight ship.
The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
Say what you want about this film, but we loved it. Taking Anne Hathaway's character from green to in-the-know about all things fashion makes for a great must-see movie. Loosely based on the whips and chains of Anna Wintour's rule at Vogue, it's an interesting plot to watch. Ask yourself: Are you considering a job in fashion? How bad do you want it? And what would you do to get there?
Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)
Style icon and "it" girl Audrey Hepburn introduced many to the world of Givenchy, NYC's famed 5th avenue and, of course, Tiffany's & Co. with this romantic comedy. She even donned what is now one of the most iconic LBD that was shown on a silver screen. Need any more incentive to watch?

Sex and the City (2008)
Carrie Bradshaw walked her impeccably dressed self right into our hearts... in Manolo Blahniks. This film is about love, friendship and, most importantly, the world of fashion and how to pull into your personal style. Fearlessly bold, there's nothing Bradshaw wouldn't wear and that is inspiring in itself. And she sits front row at New York Fashion Week (something most of us will never do)? No doubt a must-see.

Factory Girl (2006)
Based on the life and troubles of 60s "it" girl (and socialite) Edie Sedgwick and her confidant Andy Warhol, this film takes you back to a time that was wild, reckless and ridiculously stylish. This was a time when sleek, boyish and bright were all the rave. Funny thing is, all these "trends" came back around. Spot similarties in today's style.
Prêt-à-Porter (1994)
It's kinda sorta like the Crash of fashion. There's models, mag editors, designers and more who all become interconnected for one Parisian extravaganza.
Funny Face (1957)

Beyoncé mimicked this light-hearted film in her "Countdown" video, so don't be surprised if you have a bit of deja vu. Mod style, a model and a fashion photog unite in this feature. Watch and enjoy!
Coco Before Chanel (2009)
This film channels the life and times of Coco Chanel, one of the most iconic figures in the beauty biz. Seriously, you don't need any more persuasion than that!

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
