We all have those nights when we feel like just curling up and watching a movie with our girlfriends. So why not kill two birds with one stone and get some fashion insight while you’re at it?
Whether it’s based in the 18th Century, the 20’s, the 50’s, the 60’s, the 90’s or on our current day, these 10 fashionable movies are some of our favorites for their visuals, and unique takes on fashion & style. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the eye candy!

6. Factory Girl

7. Funny Face
An impromptu fashion shoot at a book store brings about a new fashion model discovery in the shop clerk. Well it’s Audrey Hepburn, need we say more?
8. Ready to Wear (Prêt-à-Porter)

9. Marie Antoinette
Very few films are as decadent as Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. This movie is full of fashion at its biggest and pastel-hued best: bows, ruffles, wigs, fans, masks… even the food in this movie is dazzling! It’s near impossible not to be inspired by the visuals in this film.
10. The Great Gatsby
A Midwestern war veteran finds himself drawn to the past and lifestyle of his millionaire neighbor. 20’s glamour at its finest!
We end this post on a High Note of a scene from The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) rebukes Andrea’s scoff that “it all looks the same to me” and explains why Andrea’s own anti-fashion-is-still-fashion beliefs are hypocritical. Epic!
