Favourite Fashion Films

I saw a video on You Tube on this the other day, the girls user name is http://www.youtube.com/user/alissaevelyn

go check her out. I think she had a blog too.

So these are some of my favourite films because of the fashion, some of them are the same as she likes. Great taste and all that :p

1. Legally Blonde.

Odd choice but I like the fact that Elle Woods wear things that aren't necessarily 'normal'. She takes risks and isn't afraid of wearing her own style.

2. Breakfast at Tiffanys.

Glamorous, chic, Audrey. Everyone has seen this film! Audrey's black dress is iconic.

3. Chocolat.

This features very much French style. It is very simple and classic with a 1920s-ish feel with a little of 1940s and 1950s in the mix too.

4. Some like it Hot.

Marliyn Monroe wears simple and classically cut dresses which I love. She wears some amazing, and daring, dresses such as the sheer tops with just her boobs covered. This is one of my favourite films in general, it is really funny and Tony Curtis is nice to look at!

5. Desperately Seeking Susan.

80s fashion to the max! Very Bohemian punk, new wave style influence. Madonna's style in this has become iconic and is seen a lot in today's fashion - over sized, blazers, black leggings, ,Ray Bans studding. Madonna is actually good in this film and I love it!

6. The Devil Wears Prada.

This features a lot of designer brands and is very high fashion in places. It is almost total fantasy as it is a totally different world to my own.

7. Sex and the City.

I love Carrie Bradshaw. She is daring and has quirky style. Her style is adventurous and fun

8. How to steal a million.

Audrey Hepburn. Glamorous 50s style. Audrey has some amazing eye liner in this film.

9. Gentlemen prefer blondes.

Jane Russell and Marliyn Monroe. The fashion is glamorous and feminine while showing of their curves. I love Jane Russell, she is amazing! The dresses are gorgeous in this movie in particular Marliyn's orange dress and Jane's black sequinned dress. Of course not forgetting the iconic Diomonds are a girls best friend dress.

10. The Notebook.

This feautres the sorts of 40s/50s style. Red lips, red nails and tea dresses. Love!

11. Gossip Girl

I love Blair's style because it is classic and tailored. Coats, dresses, pencil skirts - I love it all. I love Serena's style because it is a little more edgy and modern. I love Chuck's style aswell, he is very put together and classical but still with a quirky edge.

12. Walk the Line.

I love this film in general but the clothes worn by Reese Witherspoon to portray June Carter are gorgeous. Has a 50s feel about it - big skirts, pretty dresses.
