Five Most Fashionable Movies of all Times

Often I get asked where do I draw inspiration from; In addition to fashion icons, a favorite media of inspiration is of course cinematography. I’ve watched countless times the movies included in this post, the costume design artists have curated art and will forever inspire women of many generations to come.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s filmed in 1961 (here), starting with the right foot, Audrey Hepburn never fails to inspire women with her classic, iconic style. Holly’s style is simple, elegant and chic but did you know Givenchy created only three copies of the black sheath dress? One is presented at Maison Givenchy, one at the Museum of Costume in Madrid, and one was gifted to Audrey. One of the copies was sold at Christie’s in 2006 for $923,187,Β  the most expensive garment of film memorabilia.

The Danish Girl filmed in 2016 (here), wonderful scenario and costume design, I highly recommend watching the based on true story movie. Paco Deldago confesses the challenges of curating a 1920s wardrobe for Lili and Gerda. Post-war the quality of the fabrics proved to be fragile, the collections inherited in our times contain holes and rips. Instead, a huge amount of vintage garments were bought for the needs of the movie and used to create the artistic wardrobe of Lily and Gerday.

Allied filmed in 2016 (here), costume designer Joanna Johnston creates a glamorous an realistic post-WWII wardrobe. Marianne, the French spy owns the most impressive wardrobe of silk dresses and high-waist trousers. The designer confesses she frequents the Portobello vintage boutiques of London.

The Devil wears Prada filmed in 2006 (here), there isn’t much to say about the work of Patricia Field known from her work in Sex in the City. What strikes me the most is the initial budget planned for costume design was 100.000$, Patricia spent 1 million dollars and aren’t we all grateful for that decision?! The movie will stay in history for impeccably dressed females and icy fashion industry.

The Man from A.N.C.L.E filmed in 2015 (here). Loui Vuitton’s new muse Alicia Vikander’s 60s edge of 70s style is a feast for the eyes for us fashion hungry creatures. Joanna Johnston curated each single piece from scratch rather than use vintage pre-existing clothing, as a reason she offers intense action scenes and the need for durability.

Have you watched any of these movies? Which movie do you believe inspired today’s outfit?

    Ooh! This is a difficult one, T. I have watched and loved three of them; but the costumes do not spring to mind. I will go with Audrey Hepburn. Going back a bit. Grace Kelly used to wear some beautiful dresses. e.g. High Society.
    Hugs, Jo

    Hi T!
    Love the tweed dress, I can imagine it also worn over another dress with the buttons open or as is with a huge bow on the collar.
    From these films I have only seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Devil Wears Prada which I both loved. In fact, of my grown up life the moment I saw TDWP I got my bangs cut πŸ™‚

      These are such cool styling tips Lorena! Indeed this dress can be worn as a coat as well:)

    What a cute outfit! I love the dress and the monogrammed bag, such a cute little detail and the color looks so good with the dress. I’ve only ever watched two of the movies you’ve listed here, I’ll have to check out the others.Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

    Breakfast at Tiffany’s is great and also the Devil wears Prada. I didn’t dare to watch the Danish girl…I really liked also the movie about Yves Saint Laurent…! And obviously hair…the styles are maybe not so classical, but amazing and inspiring, especially with the current seventies revival!

      The Danish Girl is indeed a sad movie, but beautiful nevertheless! I must watch the YSL movie, thanks so much for the recommendation Jesca!

    Love the dress! It suits you perfectly. Also, yes! Breakfast at Tiffany’s is such an iconic movie when it comes to fashion.

    I absolutely understand why you get inspired by Devil Wears Prada or Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I love those movies and they inspire me too. Sex and the City is another movie/tv show that can be very inspiring.
    Love your post and your outfit. You look stunning.

      Thanks so much Renia! In fact the costume designer from Sex in the City is the same from the Devil Wears Prada! So much talent, don’t you think?!

    Oh wow, I had no idea one million dollars was spent on the costume design for The Devil Wears Prada – though every penny was worth it, the film from beginning to end is so visually inspiring!! Beautiful outfit in these photos, by the way, I love the dreamy and feminine direction your blog has taken.
