Fashion is such a big part of our lifestyle. If you’re obsessed with all things style and can tell you’re Guccis from the Puccis, I’m listing 10 odd movies that you need to watch to get your dose of fashion fix.
The Devil Wears Prada
Based on the book by the same name – the film stars Anne Hathaway as a young assistant and Meryl Streep as the icy magazine editor. Hathaway’s makeover and designer duds, not to mention cameos by Gisele Bundchen and Valentino really make it a fashion fix.
Every 90s kid would have probably seen this movie – the tartan skirts, the revolving wardrobe. We can’t help but feel envious of Cher’s life.
Sex & The City Pt 1
The cult television show hit the big screen and brought back the fabulous four. Sex and the City the movie amped up the fashion quotient – Carrie Bradshaw was outfitted in a Vivienne Westwood couture wedding gown while the rest of the girls also strutted high-fashion labels.
Coco Avant Chanel
Coco Chanel, aside from setting up one of the most influential fashion houses, changed the way we women dressed. The movie traces the journey of the orphan Gabrielle Coco Chanel and her rise to the top.
The Great Gatsby
With a costume wardrobe designed by the fashion house by Prada and baubles lent by Tiffany’s, the reboot of The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann is a visual delight of the best that the swinging 20s had to offer – drop waists and fringed dresses. The original movie isn’t that bad either.
The September Issue
A fly-on-the-wall take on the creation of Vogue’s The September Issue.
When you have uber stylist Pernia Qureshi and fashionista Sonam Kapoor collaborating, you know it’s going to be one heck of a stylish affair. This film probably ushered in the need to have a well turned out actress on screen.
Valentino: The Last Emperor
A documentary on famed red carpet designer Valentino Garavani as he prepared to hand over his empire to new management and also his jet-set life is captured so well in this documentary. Not to mention, Valentino divulges what women really want – and that’s to be beautiful.
Yves Saint Laurent: L’amour fou
Yves Saint Laurent gave us the Smoking Jacket and Mondrian print – the new documentary sheds light on the late designer’s relationship with lover and business partner Pierrre Bergé.
It might be a Woody Allen movie but Diane Keaton’s character schools us in the art of androgynous dressing.
