1. Atomic Blonde

This dynamic spy-thriller movie is must be included in every fashion girl’s must-watch list The vintage Dior, John Galliano Boots, Burberry trenches, and Stuart Weitzman books is what made this movie part of this list. The costume designer, Cindy Evans really did justice to the MI6 spy, Lorraine, and gave her a distinctive 80s style.

2. The Devil Wears Prada

This is not just a fashion movie, this is the fashion movie and this is because Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway did great justice to their roles. They also wore the best clothes from Fendi, Chanel, and of course, Prada. And did we mention that the movie had cameos from famous designers like Valentino?

3. The Great Gatsby (2013)

The 2013 movie adaptation of this classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel is just a sight to see. From the glamorous costumes and stunning jewelry from Tiffany & Co. It’s no surprise that this movie took home an Academy Award for Best Costume Design.

4. The Seven Year Itch

This movie is responsible for the popular Marilyn Monroe look, the beautifully cut white dress that is being blown by the wind. It must be one of the most famous moments in American film. And Marilyn’s pose and style in this film is the most reproduced look ever.

5. Annie Hall

This film belongs to this list because of Diane Keaton’s unique menswear style. She made the wearing of men’s clothes comfortable to ladies and this style is still copied until today.

6. Black Swan (2010)

This ballet thriller film was made even better because of the hauntingly beautiful costumes that were designed by the sisters Kate, Laura, and RodarteMalleavy. Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman was definitely a picture of ballerina excellence.

7. Clueless

Clueless became one of the defining films of the 90s not just because of its storyline but also because it inspired some of the 90s biggest fashion trends such as slip dresses, over-the-knee socks, baggy pants, and plaid skirts. Almost every teenage girl during the 90s wanted Cher’s (Alicia Silverstone) closet.

8. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

There is nothing left to say about how stylish this film is. Every ensemble that Audrey Hepburn wore in this movie was just a wonder to behold. Not to mention her iconic black Givenchy dress, velvet gloves, tiara and pearl necklace.

9. Moulin Rouge!

All of the outfits of the lead actress Nicole Kidman in this Baz Luhrmann film were to die for. The corsets, dress, headdress were a perfect addition to the magical quality of the movie.

10. Sex and the City (2008)

Stylist Patricia Field made this film even better from the Vivienne Westwood wedding dress, the fashion week appearance and the Manolo Blahnik’s. It may not be good as the HBO series but this film really showcased New York fashion and style.

11. Dior and I

Dior and I was a critically acclaimed documentary that features Raf Simon’s first collection for the couture dynamo, Christian Dior. Aside from the stunning dresses and clothes the film also tells the story of the pressure put on fashion designers in the digital age.

12. Gone with the Wind

Ignore the movie’s running time (four hours to be exact) because Gone with the Wind is a worthy investment of your time. Aside from the perfect performance of Viven Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara, the costumes are one of the film’s most important elements. The burgundy ball gown, the green curtain dress, we have Hollywood stylist legend Walter Plunkett to thank for that.

13. Pretty Woman

Need we say more? Julia Robert’s thigh-high boots, off-shoulder red gown and that 250,000 dollars diamond necklace. This romantic comedy film is stylish at its own right. Pretty Woman is a movie that should be on every girl’s must-watch list.

14. Bonnie and Clyde

For a murderous criminal that is on a full-blown crime spree and always on the run, Faye Dunaway who plays Bonnie sure has time to accessorize. From her colored stockings, scarves, and berets she sure is a fashionable criminal.

15. Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette is probably one of the most stylish offerings of director Sofia Coppola. The ornate fans, embellished wigs, and dramatic gowns made the film won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design.
