4 Movies With The Best Fashion
From the classic styles of the 1930’s to the modern day trends of the late 2000’s, film and fashion have always gone hand in hand. As moviegoers, we constantly look at films to show us the latest and greatest in the fashion world, and sometimes, we even use this information to keep up to date on our own fashion trends.
While I’m by no means an expert (despite my love for clothes and expensive items), I decided to take a stab at singling out four movies that, in my opinion, have the best representation of fashion.
This is perhaps one of the most obvious choices. The 2006 film is essentially one big fashion show, and while countless designers are name-dropped throughout, The Devil Wears Prada really does showcase some of the best styles. From shoes to sunglasses to skirts, we were treated to an in-depth look at the height of the fashion world and we quickly learned the best fabrics, the best stores and the best colors.
The movie wasn’t just about showing the most expensive clothing – it was about showing how different fashion items could be worn, and how different ensembles could be put together. For anyone who was a stickler for clothes and shoes, this movie made us swoon in every way possible.
One of the most classic films (and also the origin of the now famous “little black dress”) Breakfast At Tiffanys re-defined the word “femininity.” Audrey Hepburn’s clothing and look – the long, silk gloves, the never-ending cigarette holders – were all part of a picture-perfect look of romanticism that was such an important part of society back in the day.
Every outfit and ensemble that was seen in the film made an impact in some way. But it was the infamous Givenchy dress that sealed this movie’s status in fashion history. What Hepburn created with her looks has more than withstood the test of time, continually influencing both movies and fashion even in today’s world.
Although we may re-watch Clueless now and think “who would ever wear that!” it’s hard to forget how much we coveted everything Cher wore back in the 1990’s (remember that little white mini-dress?).
Legions of girls fawned over the fashion portrayed in this film, wishing they were as rich as the Beverly Hills socialite who was always one step ahead in making sure she looked the best wherever she went, whether it was at school or at the mall.
Everything was super sized when Sex and the City brought Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte to the big screen – and fashion was no exception. In fact, “supersized” may even have been an understatement. Dresses were crazier. Shoes were taller. Hairpieces were more extravagant. But the really awesome thing about Sex and the City and the fashion that was portrayed is that even though the series originally ended in 2001, the girls managed to keep up with the times and give us outfits and clothing choices that we coveted.
And let’s not even talk about Carrie’s Fifth Avenue apartment walk in closet. Girls, if you’ve seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.
