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.
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!
