Are you a seasoned movie buff? Are you more of an “I just want to go the movies and watch what’s on” person? Perhaps you are content to watch whatever Netflix has in the evening.

No matter what your opinion on cinema, there are films that you must see.

These films are worth watching; whether it’s a documentary that reveals the designer’s first collection at the top of a major fashion house (Dior and I), or a tongue-in-cheek mockery of the fashion industry (2 Zoolander 2), these are films any fashion girl should have on their watch list.

Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

This blockbuster is the story of Asia’s richest families and their extravagant lifestyles. It was always going to have major couture moments featuring its star-studded cast from the Swarovski-encrusted bride Araminta Lee’s wedding dress to the vintage look worn by Astrid Leong (played beautifully by Gemma Chan) to the glamorous looks of Astrid Leong, Asia’s most fashionable woman. The film’s high-caliber fashion was impressive, but the off-screen red carpet moments were just as spectacular.

Atomic Blonde 2017

Charlize Theron’s spy-thriller, Atomic Blonde, has risen to the top of fashion girls’ must-watch lists. Cindy Evans, the costume designer behind the distinctive style of the ’80s, said to Fashionista that MI6 spy Lorraine was dressed in vintage Dior trenches and John Galliano vinyl coats. Stuart Weitzman’s boots were also on hand.

Ocean’s Eight (2018)

All-female remake Ocean’s Eleven featured cameos by fashion stars. The film stars Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock and Rihanna, and Serena Williams. It tells the story of a huge jewelry heist at Met Gala.

Prada the Devil Wears (2006)

This is The Fashion Movie. Meryl Streep’s Oscar-nominated performance as Miranda Priestly (a thinly disguised caricature of Anna Wintour) is what gave the movie its film-buff credibility. Additional points? Additional points?

Bill Cunningham, New York (2010)

Before the documentary’s release, Bill Cunningham was only known to well-connected fashion insiders. Cunningham, a street photographer who died in 2012, was an eccentric. His thoughts on fashion (“it’s just the armor to survive the realities of everyday-life”) are fascinating. In the film’s aftermath, he, his blue jacket, and his bicycle became fashion icons.

Homecoming (2019).

Beyonce’s Homecoming documentary is an amazing way to show why she is the most popular performer today. The film documents the preparations of the singer for Coachella 2018 and features a complete wardrobe designed by Olivier Rousteing, Balmain’s creative director.

Phantom Thread (2017)

In his last film before retiring, Daniel Day-Lewis plays an obsessive-compulsive gownmaker for the wealthy of 1950s London. This film gives an honest look at the work that makes couture clothes and is almost an emotion-filled experience for fashion lovers.

September Issue 2009

This September Issue was the first time that the public got to see the inside of a fashion magazine. The film follows the creation of American Vogue’s September 2007 issue, which is considered the most important in a magazine’s year. Film’s highlights include the often turbulent relationship between Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief, and Grace Coddington (ex-creative director).

Nocturnal Animals 2016

It turns out that Tom Ford can make movies just as well as designer clothes. Nocturnal Animals has been a fashion icon. It stars Amy Adams as a tortured art dealer to the super-elites in L.A. and features a multitude of chic outfits on-screen (none of which are Ford’s, however, the designer forbid his clothes from appearing in it).

Sex and The City (2008)

The Vivienne Westwood wedding gown, the bridal couture photoshoot, the appearance in fashion week, the Manoloblahnik’s… Sex and the City’s Hollywood Spin-off. While it may not be as good, it is still a worthy contender in the fashion stakes. Thank Patricia Field.

Zoolander2 (2016)

It mocks the fashion industry mercilessly, but there are so many amazing cameos (cue Marc Jacobs and Vera Wang, Alexander Wang and Naomi Campbell) that the industry is not afraid to have a good time.

Breathless (1960)

Cool girls such as Alexa Chung or Jeanne Damas get their outfit inspiration from Jean Luc Godard’s muses, regardless of whether they realize it. Jean Seberg in BREATHLESS -Godard’s first film – is beautiful, neurotic and beautifully dressed.

Moulin Rouge 2001

Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 masterpiece is filled with stunning costumes. These are the finest in Catherine Martin’s long, Academy Award-winning career as a costume designer. Intricate, feathered negligees and bejeweled corsets are available in Paris’s 1902 bohemia setting. Nicole Kidman’s Satine, who wears a crimson gown, is also featured in the “Elephant Love Medley” scene.

Coco Before Chanel (2009)

Audrey Tatou plays Gabrielle Chanel. This is the time in her life that made her the legendary designer we all know. Read Gabrielle, a part-time seamstress in a bar dreams of creating hats for French high society.

A Simple Favor (2018)

A Simple Favor received mixed reviews. However, it was a fashion show de force due to Blake Lively’s role as a troubled fashion worker who wore only three-piece power suits that Paul Feig’s film director inspired. He also wears suits on his days off. Lively, who wore various candy-colored looks in menswear, embraced the film’s look for the press tour.

Dior and I (2014)

This documentary is a critically acclaimed one. It follows Raf Simons’ first collection at Christian Dior, couture powerhouse. It shows the increasing pressure on fashion designers in today’s digital age and may foreshadow Raf’s surprise departure from Dior after just three and a quarter years.

Blow up (1966).

Antonioni’s film is a cult classic about a fashion photographer who accidentally films a murder in a London park. The 1960s costumes are stunning, Vanessa Redgrave is the ultimate mod-era supermodel, and Jane Birkin appears as ‘The Brunette. Perfection.

Yves Saint Laurent (2014)

This French biopic covers more than a decade in the life of designer Yves Saint Laurent, which includes his controversial dismissal at Dior as well as his turbulent, sometimes tumultuous, relationship with Pierre Berge. Pierre Niney, an actor, was just 24 when he assumed the challenging role that received deservedly high praises.

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019).

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is a film with many great moments. Vintage fashion lovers will love Margot Robbie’s stunning wardrobe featuring Sharon Tate and Arianne Phillips as the costume designer, who does a great job of capturing the actress’s elegant style.

Mademoiselle C (2013)

Harper’s BAZAAR’s Global Fashion Director Carine Roitfeld is this documentary’s subject. It travels from Paris to New York to follow Carine’s creation and launch of her biannual magazine, C.R. Fashion Book.
