The world of film and fashion has always been two closely related areas. Over the years, fashion designers flocked to dress the actors in clothes designed by them. The directors have tried to illustrate how closely bright it is the atmosphere of this fascinating world and especially to take a look behind the scenes and see what’s beyond the “fashion”.
It’s a mutual exchange of inspiration from which we have to gain. Let’s see some movies that talk about this subject. As usual I tried to make a selection as diverse both in style and subject, but all related to fashion.
10. Desert Flower
The film presents the true story of Waris Dirie, a famous black model, which runs from Somalia at age of 13 years to escape from an arranged marriage. She is spotted by a fashion photographer, who helps her to become famous. Liya Kebede is the main actress, a supermodel who is flirting with the world of movie.
It could not miss from this top a comedy! Zoolander is a comedy of Ben Stiller and trying to parody the superficiality of the fashion world. The distribution is made up of actors like Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Milla Jovovich, David Duchovny and personalities from the fashion world as – Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger, Heidi Klum, and Claudia Schiffer.
This is the life lived by Gia Carangi. Short and full. She has died in 1986, at just 26 years. She was born in Philadelphia, then moved to New York, determined to become a model. Soon his presence holds out one of the most influential agent, Wilhelmina Cooper. With her help, Gia will soon reach the top of the fashion chain represented by the New York world of fashion. The road will be facilitated by a number of advantages, such as striking beauty, attitude that already is put in a rebel’s top stars and, last but not least, uninhibited that gave evidence to pose nude.
It is another movie about the famous fashion designer, this time in another interpretation: if Anna Mouglalis in Coco Avant Chanel we learn her story before she became famous, now we find some of her personal life – a passionate relationship between her and the famous composer Igor Stravinsky.
06. Sex and the City
Although it is not directly related to fashion, “Sex and the City” is a movie that could not miss from this top. I do not think there is any woman who has not watched to a single episode of the famous series “Sex and the City”. And I’m sure you saw the movie. Four close friends and their spectacular adventures – fun and fashion… and some outfit that would make anyone envious.
In this movie you can see the portrait of a great fashion designer. Karl Lagerfeld is followed 24-hour per day by camera. In the film appear actors like Nicole Kidman and Princess Caroline of Monaco. At work or in particular, Karl Lagerfeld proves the same passion and elegance with which we have used with.
04. 27 Dresses
Maybe it is a movie that does not necessarily deserve this place in this top. But also is the film where we can breathe if we are ever invited to a wedding. The screenwriter of “The Devil Wears Prada” presents the story of a girl and a 27 bridesmaid dresses that dress it. Maybe it’s the time to go to the next level, but Mr.Perfect’s is hard to be found. Obviously we are dealing with a romantic comedy. The protagonists are Katherine Heigl and James Marsden.
The film starts from the true story of the writer Lauren Weisberger who was at one time a chief assistant editor at Vogue magazine. The film reveals the ins and outs of New York fashion world and the sacrifices that have to do a young provincial (Anne Hathaway) to maintain a position of support tyrannical editor (Meryl Streep). The outfits in the movie are absolutely amazing.
Audrey Tautou plays the role of the most famous women from fashion: Coco Chanel. The film tells the story of unhappy childhood and the difficult life that Coco had a before reaching the great Parisian fashion. It may occur along with Audrey Tatou and Benoît Poelvoorde and Alessandro Nivola. The film received a lot of nominations among them – an Oscar nomination, BAFTA nomination and two nominations in April at the European Film Academy.
Year after year, “The Paris Fashion Week” gather together all the celebrities from the fashion world. If you are not here, practically, you do not exist. Robert Altman describes glittering world of fashion in a satirical full of irony. Actors appear in this film as well as celebrities from the fashion world: Marcello Mastroianni, Sophia Loren, Tim Robbins, Anouk Aimee, and Julia Roberts.
