Yaaas! This is my kind of topic, you guys, and it didn’t take me long to find recommendations for this one. I sat down, saw the topic, and was like, alright, here are three movies every fashion lover should watch, like, right now!
I will say this, last year I recommended two of my favourite fashion documentaries, The September Issue and The First Monday in May, so I won’t recycle them for this week. But these two are still highly recommended nonetheless.
The late Bill Cunningham was one of the most known names in fashion photography, and he was especially talented at capturing street style. He lived a simple life, stripped from comfort, in a tiny apartment filled with his work, and worked until his death, taking pictures, loving every minute of it. If you watch this documentary, which I hope you do, expect to be emotional by the end of it, it is absolutely beautiful.
And here is another documentary that will give you a great insight into the fashion world, one based on Diana Vreeland, editor of Harpers Bazaar and Vogue. And when Anna Wintour was there to discover the celebrity culture, Vreeland was there before her, celebrating quirks and uniqueness of people, and exploring the fun of fashion.
Though my love for the fashion movies mainly consists of documentaries, The Devil Wears Prada is the closest I think any movie came to capturing the essence of fashion. Granted, some of it is based on real life, but that’s what makes the movie special. Over the years it has become an iconic movie on its own right, and it definitely deserves a place among all the fashion documentaries I love.
