Do you ever get done watching a movie and think "Well great, now I need an entire new wardrobe"? You know, when the style was just so good that now you hate everything in your closet? I remember watching movies like "Clueless", "Jawbreaker" and "Pretty Woman" in middle school that totally changed how I looked at fashion. Obviously fashion is very personal, and yours might be different from mine - but here are my top 10 movies that make me want to throw out all my clothes and start over.
What are yours?
1. "The Devil Wears Prada"
Duh, anytime there's a massive makeover in a movie - sign me up. The amount of chic outfits following the big designer makeover of Anne Hathaway's character are jaw-dropping. Remember the thigh high Chanel boots she debuted? I'll never forget. (Side note: Can you believe that is Emily Blunt who plays Anne Hathaway's work rival turned gal pal? She looks so different now!)
The overall style in this film is so classic and beautiful, but is there anything more stunning than this remarkable green dress Keira Knightley dons?? My sis loves it so much she wants to wear it as a wedding gown for her vow renewal. The vintage, 1930s-inspired style is perfection.
#3. Anything and Everything Directed by Baz Luhrmann
Yup, we can't choose just one, though at the top of the list are "Romeo and Juliette", "The Great Gastby" and "Moulin Rouge". That red dress and flawless makeup Nicole Kidman wears so elegantly makes me want to lock myself up in a Parisian tower too! Not to mention all the burlesque get up. MEOW!
#4. "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
This list wouldn't be complete without the movie behind the little black dress. Every look in this film is iconic, Audrey Hepburn is flawless - really, no more needs to be said.
#5. La La Land
One of my new favorite movies is - without a doubt - La La Land! Even though it's set in modern times, the pops of color intricately laced into Emma Stone's wardrobe gives a certain sense of nostalgia that makes our fashion spidey senses tingle. Plus, all the outfits are ones you can really move in - #dancedancedance.
#6. "The Talented Mr. Ripley"
If only Seattle had more beaches - I would try to wear all the outfits seen in "The Talented Mr. Ripley". Preppy beach wear never looked so good on Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Matt Damon! Kudos to the set stylist. I mean, cozy sweaters and Keds equals perfection! The looks appear effortless but totally put together at the same time. And who doesn't love a vintage bikini and shirtless men mixed with mystery.
#7. "Marie Antoinette"
It's impossible not to adore the style in Marie Antoinette. The corset dresses, over the top hats and high hair, the rosy cheeks and soft pink lips, (and you can't forget the lingerie.) I will forever dream of achieving this look on Halloween!
#8 "Sex and the City" (show and movies)
The clothes in this franchise literally play a role as an additional character. I love Carrie and Charlotte's style, but we all have a FAV right?! Let's not forget the scene in the first movie when Carrie is trying on all the designer wedding dresses for a photo shoot. It's kind of embarrassing how many times I've watched that.
#9. "Factory Girl"
Based on the rise and fall of socialite Edie Sedgwick, the film concentrates on her relationships with Andy Warhol and a folk singer. IE - the fashion in this flick is pure art. You can't keep your eyes off Sienna Miller and her quirky gear; even if it may not be your style.
We had to give Seattle some love with"Singles". This movie is a perfect example of 90s grunge. Seattle still owns the look!
Now go grab some popcorn and get watching, lots of judging to do!
