Fashionable Movie; Fabulous Quote

To be honest, I tend to take a lot of my fashion cues from films. There is something honest about seeing clothes actually being worn and used. Clothes in films seem much more practical when they aren’t in the glossy, fantastic pages of my favorite magazine. Moreover, movies are definitely my second love (after fashion, of course). I am a big fan of movies with smart dialogue. So here is a sampling of very fashionable films with very memorable dialogue.

    Okay, I have a lot of things to say in this comment…i should probably just email you or something, but oh well!

    1.) I love every movie and quote you posted. Great choices.
    2.) How did you make that post look so good?! It looks like a magazine spread.
    3.) I already have A Piece of Cake -AND- The Poisonwood Bible in mind for future posts. I’ve read poisonwood probably 5 times, I love it. And I just read A Piece of Cake recently and could not put it down! Again, great choices!
    4.) I was also going to post about the book The Virgin Suicides
    5.) You are awesome, and one of my new favorite people!

    Great post! My favorite is that I’m, really, in desperate need of Chanel! 😉

    To remember my favorite quote is not very easy…but I like Marilyn’s; “Girls who behave rarely make history.”-that can work for fashion, and in real life!


  • Reply The Clothes Horse July 11, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    I love Virgin Suicides.
    Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde is one of my favorite style movies. Amelie is awesome too…

    I love these quotes. The Mean Girls one is just too funny.
    And the Notebook. That whole movies is just so good.

  • Reply Anika July 12, 2009 at 8:03 am

    I love your faves, and the influence on fashion they had/have.

    I adore anything Tim Burton. Styling in Burton films is always on the over-characterised side and that’s what makes it perfect. Infact Helena Bonham Carter inspires. Always.

  • Reply hauteworld July 12, 2009 at 9:46 am

    What a great post! All these movies have definitely inspired me as well. I got all nostalgic seeing the pic of Clueless… I remember watching that with my best friends when we were teenagers and for the first time we actually considered knee-high socks (I never did get any though). I go ga-ga for a lot of period films such as the Great Gatsby. I just love how people used to dress up even if there wasn’t an occasion. Marie Antoinette’s OTT opulence was amazing as well.

  • Reply Jennifer July 12, 2009 at 11:24 am

    I love all those movies!! They are great fashion inspirations too….gosh I would LOVE to dress like Marie Antionette. Lol.

    woww.. i love all the quotes!!! :))
    well, i’ve once watched this tv series, it’s from nickelodeon though, titled unfabulous life, but really, the quote hit the spot! “sometimes, things don’t turn out like we expect them to, but sometimes, they turn out better!”

    love that


  • Reply Becs July 13, 2009 at 6:00 am

    Fun post! Great job on putting it together. The Notebook and The Devil Wears Prada are on my fav movie list. Def. inspired by the classic 80’s movies like Dirty Dancing and Pretty in Pink.. and then the 90’s movies such as Reality Bites. BTW, love the quotes you chose as well!

    xo, Becs
