What’s Your Favorite Fashion Film Of All Time?
And please don’t say “Sex & The City.” Just in time for Fashion Week, Turner Classic Movies has released its list of their top 15 “favorite fashion trendsetting classic films” and we easily agree with their picks (and not just because we’re related). There’s simply no match for Faye Dunaway’s tams and pencil skirts in “Bonnie and Clyde” (number 10), not to mention those cheekbones. In “And God Created Woman” (7) Brigitte Bardot brought the bikini to the forefront of fashion and epitomized sexy style. We love that for “Annie Hall” (13), Diane Keaton stuck to her guns and insisted they shoot her wearing what she preferred in real life, menswear-inspired (and actual) trousers and vests. And while we admit that there’s simply no rival for Grace Kelly’s impeccably-dressed, haute couture turn in “Rear Window,” as clichéd a film as it has become, it’s Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (9) that we’ll always think of when it comes to the ultimate marriage between fashion and film. Well, that and “Blade Runner,” which, um, oddly didn’t make the cut. Check out the entire list here.
