Just like my list of 5 books every fashion girls should read, I’ve come up with a list of the 5 films every fashion girl should watch. Some are new, some are classics, but each one has an amazing story and are total inspirations! So whether you’re having a movie night at home with friends, or you need to kill some time on a long flight or road trip, I’ve got the perfect films for you!
1. The Intern
“You’re never wrong to do the right thing.”
Anne Hathaway stars as Jules Ostin the founder and president of “About The Fit” which is an online clothing site based in Brooklyn, New York. Not only is Jules in charge of 220 employees, but she has her own family at home. She thinks she can have it all, but the stress from investors and her husband may be overcoming her. When her company hires the 70-year-old intern Ben Whittaker, played by Robert De Niro, to assist Jules in the office, he helps Jules keep her center and calm and becomes a father-figure to the other employees in the office. This is a great film about following your passion and balancing a career and family!
“Always keep your eyes open. Keep watching because whatever you see can inspire you.”
This documentary, filmed in 2009, goes behind the scenes of American Vogue Magazine’s production of the 2007 September Issue. In the fashion industry, September is the start of a new year on the calendar. The film follows Vogue Editor and Chief Anna Winter and Creative Director at large Grace Coddington as photo shoots are planned, models are booked, and cuts are made. From inception to completion The September Issue really gives you an inside look at the hard work and dedication that is put into one of the biggest fashion magazines in the world.
“I think it’s fun to dress up. It’s an exercise in creativity and it makes you feel better.”
Ari Seth Cohen, street-style photographer, and Lina Plioplyte, director, feature seven incredible women in the film Advance Style. New York City holds many of the world’s most fashionable men and women but not all of them are as young as you think. These seven women are all over 60 and obsessed with all things fashion. This film truly shows us that we get better with age! (Plus you can watch this on Netflix!)
“Anyone who ever gave you confidence, you owe them a lot.”
Probably one of the most favorited films of all time, Oscar-winning Breakfast At Tiffany’s stars the beautiful and iconic Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. Holly, the beautifully dressed society girl, falls for a young man Paul Varjak (George Peppard) who has moved into her NYC apartment building. The young and eccentric couple enjoy the New York scene while romance finds its way in. Add in some amazing jewelry, incredible hats, a cat named Cat, and you’ve got one of the most iconic films of all time.
5. Dior and I
“I want it to be dynamic, because I find women very dynamic.”
This is the inside story of Raf Simmons and his new position as Creative Director of Christian Dior fashion house. This film follows the 8 weeks Simmons had to create his entire (and first) collection for the House of Dior. With gorgeous dresses and an unprecedented look at the inner workings of one of the biggest names in fashion, Dior and I is a must see!
