The time for hunkering down is here. It’s officially the wettest December in 75 years, the light gray sky turns to black by mid-afternoon, and many of us will be attempting to fill countless family hours this week. That’s the perfect storm for cinema. We’ve rounded up fourteen films worth a new or second look for their notable fashion moments.
A classic to top all classics. The whole family can watch and the costumes are epic. Plus, Sisters is arguably one of the greatest songs of all time.
To Wong Fu, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar
Get solid drag queen advice and fashion montages for days. We all miss you, Patrick Swayze.
A documentary about one of the most stylish, fabulous women of all time. Even grandma will love this.
Nicole Kidman’s extended eyebrows, the chorus costumes, and the red dress. It all screams fashion.
One of Hitchcock’s best films; the ultimate leading lady Grace Kelly steals the show in her perfect outfits.
Devil Wears Prada
A crash course in designer fashion, plus Meryl Streep. You can’t ask for more.
Pretty in Pink
I don’t really have to get into this right? Go watch it.
Probably not the film to watch with the fam, but this 1970s story about porn stars has a killer storyline and fantastic disco ensembles.
Never has a croquet mallet been a more important accessory.
If you want to be considered a fashion person, watching this film and putting a scarf on your head is a prerequisite.
Put on your most capable looking outfit, and show this to a younger generation. (It’s also proof Paul Rudd never ages.)
It’s stupid, yes. But it also has fantastic and ridiculous outfits. Plus, that Hansel is so hot right now.
Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead
Christina Applegate and a '90s fashion show. Get right on top of this, Rose.
Long before Sex and the City, Kim Cattrall was stealing our hearts as a plastic mannequin by day and human fashionista by night.
