Crazy Rich Asians
Wealthy families? Check! Lavish lifestyles? Check! Iconic fashionable moments? Double-check! The star-studded cast in the film turned out in the most wonderfully indulgent clothes you’d ever see!
That Swarovski-encrusted wedding attire tops the list! (worn by the fictitious bride Aramati Lee). We couldn’t have enough of Astrid Leong’s (Gemma Chang) dresses too. It’s high-flying fashion at its best! And that’s not all the equally epic red carpet moments of the cast are what fashion dreams are made of!
The 2017 Charlize Theron movie is a dynamic spy-thriller, but this movie is not all about flying hair and great action. It is all about eighties fashion enjoying its moment of glory under the sun. The badass girl was dressed in some of the best vintage Dior, John Galliano vinyl jackets, Stuart Weitzman footwear, and to-die-for Margiela suits. Cindy Evans, the costume designer, wanted to channelize ‘cool’ in this film, and she came out trumps. We still haven’t got over the sartorial timelessness of the film! And Charlize rocked every one of those breathtaking outfits!
The all-female cast of the Ocean’s Eight films was a treat to the eyes of every fashionista. With stunning outfits and cameos from stars of the fashion world, it has everything to make you fall in love with the movie. That film has all our favorites right from Sandra Bullock to Cate Blanchett, Rihanna to Anne Hathway, to name just a few.
And of course, the massive jewelry heist at the annual Met Gala was a fashion monger’s delight. The movie was a star-studded affair with numerous celebrities making a guest apperance. It had everyone from Serena Williams, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian West, and Dakota Fanning, to name just a few. We are obsessed! Right from the shimmering gowns to tailored-to-perfection pantsuits, it has it all.
The Devil Wears Prada
If ever there was a fashion movie, then this is it. We all have an Andie (Anne Hathway) lurking in somewhere, looking at Miranda Priestly in absolute awe! What do we love about the film? The protagonist’s sparkling turn as Andie and Miranda and some of their incredible outfits.
We love the simple black and white dresses to the elegant black gown in the film’s pivotal moments. Some of the outfits are still relevant, which makes it one of the most iconic films ever! And yes, we have got to talk about Anne’s head-to-toe Chanel ensemble that’s all classy and oh-so-fashion forward.
It is not exactly an ode to the fashion industry. On the contrary, it mocks the entire fashion industry, but it offers some of the most iconic fashion moments, all the while laughing at the idiosyncrasies of the fashion world. The whole film has sparkling cameos, right from Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss, Alexander Wang, Naomi Campbell, Valentino, proving that the industry can laugh at itself and make it a fun and breezy watch.
Not exactly a film, but this documentary on Beyonce, featuring on Netflix, is the ultimate feast for fashion mongers. Beyonce’s preparation for the Coachella festival in 2018 boasts of a wardrobe by Olivier Rousteing (creative director of Balmain). The outfits are scintillating, and Queen B struts her stuff like the absolute diva she is.
