Fashion The Best Fashion Films to Watch Right Now

One of the most-quoted scenes from a fashion movie is a monologue delivered by Miranda Priestly (played perfectly by Meryl Streep), in which she takes her assistant Andy (Anne Hathaway) down a peg for daring to think that she is free from the influence of the fashion industry. The sweater she was wearing, after all, “was selected by the people in this room.” No matter how you cut it, fashion is in the fabric of our everyday lives. And beyond “The Devil Wears Prada,” there are some incredible films out there — works of fiction, movies “loosely” based on reality and documentaries alike — that shed light on the industry, its history and its people. 

If you want to learn about some of the most notable, influential figures that have shaped fashion into what it is today, watch “The September Issue” or “Lagerfeld Confidential.” If you just want a laugh at the expense of the really, really, ridiculously good looking, settle down with “Zoolander”. And if you’re looking for some new style inspiration, revisit iconic movies like “First Wives Club,” “Clueless” and “Roman Holiday” — which, fine, aren’t technically about fashion, but serve some incredibly good looks.
