There are nights when I feel like just curling up and watching a movie all by myself. Usually it’s a girly movie and mine are always fashion involved.
These 10 movies are some of my favorites for their fun and unique takes on style. If you are into those, sit back, relax, and enjoy the eye candy!
Rear Window (1954)
Grace Kelly’s style in Rear Window captures the classic look of the 1950s. Her outfits are elegant, demure and tailored. The film is full of long skirts, luxurious fabrics and interesting necklaces. Also, her character is never without a the ultimate piece of classy jewelry: pearls.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
This beloved film starring Audrey Hepburn is packed with classic, glamorous fashion. After all, the original “Little Black Dress” can be credited to this film! A total classic that you’ll want to watch again and again.
Annie Hall (1977)
Dianne Keaton’s preppy menswear in this Woody Allen flick was a big trend at the time of the film release, and still remains a classic look today.
The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)
This movie is overall extremely visually pleasing. Between the beautiful Mediterranean backdrop and amazing costumes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, and Jude Law (who are quite beautiful themselves!), you won’t be able to get enough.
Marie Antoinette (2006)
Very few films are as decadent as Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. This movie is full of fashion at its biggest and pastel-hued best: bows, ruffles, wigs, fans, masks… even the food in this movie is dazzling! It’s near impossible not to be inspired by the visuals in this film.
The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
OK, I loved the book more than the movie, but the way Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt were styled in this movie was perfection, and of course Meryl Streep is a given. Patricia Field managed to put them in designer clothes and shoes to perfectly suit the characters they’re playing, women who work for a fashion magazine, without hitting you over the head with it.
The Royal Tenenbaums (2006)
As with almost any film directed by Wes Anderson, The Royal Tenenbaums has a distinct and unique aesthetic. Gweneth Paltrow’s character sparked tons of Halloween costume ideas after this film came out. However, it is not so much her outfits as the look of the entire film, including the sets, that make this movie so visually entertaining.
Factory Girl (2006)
Edie Sedgwick was (and still is!) a style icon and the fashion in Factory Girl represents her unique taste in clothing. A trailblazer in the 60s Mod scene, Edie was a fan of clean lines and geometric prints. In addition, she was almost always sporting black opaque tights. She was not afraid to be bold and make a statement with accessories. Her love of over sized earrings, big sunglasses and tall boots defined 1960s mod style.
Sex and the City: The Movie (2008)
I could not leave this recent classic off the list! Just like the show, the Sex and the City movie is a constant stream of fashion inspiration, designer brands, and NYC style. Even better, with the four main characters, there is an outfit to suit every taste.
Coco Before Chanel (2009)
The story of Coco Chanel’s rise from obscure beginnings to the heights of the fashion world. This movie is the classic rags to riches story. It’s a very inspiring and heartfelt story of a woman who forever influenced the world of fashion. If you want to learn more about this icon who is so famous, yet we know so little about, this is the perfect start.
