Best fashion movies of all time

  1. It has to be The Devil wears Prada! It takes place at the editorial office of a fashion magazine, Runway and its boss is played by Meryl Streep, whose hairstyle inspired a lot of women when the movie appeared. Anne Hathaway has to adapt to a whole new lifestyle and decide what are the most important things in life. Paris Fashion Week, photoshoots, amazing dresses… a classic!
  2. Breakfast at Tiffany’s dresses take an honourable place at the history of fashion. The little black dress, the beige trench coat, the pink coctail dress and a man’s shirt worn as a nightgown became classics.
  3. Coco before Chanel commemorates how Gabrielle Chanel became the world’s most famous designer. Beginning with a wild woman, who refused to wear a corset and decided to wear pants for riding a horse. She revolutionised the fashion industry.
  4. Sex and the City 1 and 2 are not exactly fashion movies in a serious manner, though we can not avoid them with the amount of Manolo Blahnik’s and designer dresses appearing in both of the movies.
  5. Funny face is about a girl who works in a bookshop and suddenly becomes a model even though her face doesn’t seem to fit in the current beau ideal.  The main characters are played by Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire.
  6. Yves Saint Laurent, who first became the assistant of Christian Dior kicks the doors of fashion with his haute couture collection. His best friend and his muse also appears in the film who followed his career from the very beginning.
  7. Coco Chanel from 2008 is a biography based on the designer’s life. The elderly Chanel, who narrates the whole movie is played by Shirley MacLaine.
