“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel

Every fashion lover agrees that fashion is not just about clothes, it’s like a religion we follow, and if you’re one of them then you might be following all the designers, magazines and the fashion buzz. But, have you ever decided to follow fashion movies? If not, here’s the list of movies which carry panache of fashion in every bit of it. So, if you are obsessed with impeccable style, you definitely have to watch these.

1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, the film is about a naive, eccentric cafe society girl who is looking for a rich man to marry. But eventually, she becomes interested in a young man who has moved into her apartment building.

2. Confessions of a Shopaholic

Sophie Kinsella’s novel adaption is one of my favourites! I confess. I fell for the Shopaholic.Confessions of a Shopaholic is a rare gem that’s worth the guilty swipe of a maximized credit card. Each and every one of us can relate to her situation, when it comes to shopping. Duh! Greedy us!

3. The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

A smart and intelligent aspiring journalist and new graduate, Andy, lands a job in a fashion magazine called Runway. She starts evolving under her demanding and fierce editor-in-chief, Miranda Priestly, until she realizes that she has started to become like her, the movie is lined up by alot of surprises, from makeover diaries to a ride to the real fashion world!

4. Sex And The City (2008)

From ravishing outfits, glitter and glam to the tale of four sassy New York-based women in search of long-lasting relationships, with a lot of fashion punch along.


5. Coco Before Chanel (2009)

Directed by Anne Fontaine, the movie is about one of the greatest fashion icons of all times, Coco Chanel. Her journey from harsh beginnings to the heights of the fashion world is really inspiring and motivational.

6. The September Issue (2009)

September is always the biggest issue of every magazine and this documentary gives an inside look at what it takes to produce one of the most iconic books in the business. Go behind the scenes at Vogue and hear from Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, and more about what really goes into the glossy.

7. Zoolander (2001)

Quite a journey of a fashion designer, Derek loses hope when his rival Hansel wins a pageant. A fashion designer hires Derek for a movie, but instead happens something unexpected!

8. Valentino: The Last Emperor (2008)

This 2008 documentary is a love letter of sorts to the very tan, very Italian Valentino Garavani as he approaches retirement. But the famed designer is obviously not going out quietly, and the film is full of footage from his swan song: an opulent couture runway show and celebrity bash.
