Since the invention of cinematography filmmakers have produced diverse fashion movies, but only a few of them became iconic. Here is a small list of fashion movies that are worth watching not only because of the bright pictures, fashion shows, and plenty of outfits, shoes, and handbags.

Put aside gambling at online bookmaker websites and other hobbies for later – it’s time for high fashion and fun! And outfits in these movies will inspire you to recreate them and upgrade your wardrobe!
“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1961)
The main character of the movie is charming and stylish adventuress Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn). She likes jewelry from Tiffany’s, which, however, she is not able to afford. Audrey’s easy, creative, and carefree nature, who spends her whole life in search of herself, can not help but attract the viewer’s eye. This iconic movie has many beautiful and elegant outfits, which constantly change Holly. The image of a little black dress with a string of pearls and a mouthpiece in her hand made Audrey Hepburn the world’s fashion icon.
“Sex and the City”, “And Just Like That” (1998-2004, 2021-2023)
This iconic series could easily be named “Fashion and the City”. The original series and its sequel “And Just Like That” are focused on the lives of 4 beautiful women (Carry, Samantha, Miranda, Charlotte) who are crazy about New York, men, and high fashion. Their beautiful and stylish outfits (for example Carrie’s Oscar de la Renta pink dress for the ballet and Vivienne Westwood Wedding Dress) made the series part of the fashion industry. And even “And Just Like That” is set more than 10 years after the events of “Sex and the City”, the passion for fashion of the main characters remains the same.
“The Devil Wears Prada” (2006)
Not every young girl, no matter how smart, strong, educated and determined she is, becomes an assistant to the editor-in-chief of the high-fashion magazine Runway. Recent college graduate Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) manages to realize her dream and gets into the world of fashion journalism, style, and luxury. The demanding and narcissistic editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) makes the everyday life of the young assistant unbearable. However, optimistic Andy
does not despair, changes her style, and makes her job great. So did the costume designers: they chose for Andy and Miranda stylish and iconic Chanel, Prada, John Galliano, Miu Miu, Calvin Klein, and Valentino outfits.
