Now that your exams are almost over (or are underway at least) how about movies – fashionable movies - some lightweight entertainment, if you will. But forget The Hunger Games and Breaking Dawn – lets get retro!
I know this topic has been done to death on most blogs, but here’s a couple of my fashion-movie-faves. (Which are here for you to borrow from the library).
Bonnie and Clyde is the original gangster movie about two original gangsters. Well not really, Bonnie and Clyde were actually bank robbers during the 1930s. This movie was made in 1967 and it was a hit at the time, nominated for the Oscars and starring the dreamy Warren Beatty. But really it’s all about Faye Dunaway, her midi skirts and her beret.
The 1980s were all about the mini-series on TV, and the biggest and glossiest mini-series of them all is Return to Eden. If you love 80s fashion then this is for you. I could not begin to explain the crazy plot (it involves marriage, murder, modelling and crocodiles), but I can tell you the earrings and shoulder pads are HUGE. There’s also the best catwalk scene EVER and the classic line “I need an editor, someone who can get me on the cover of Vogue in six months”. Enjoy!
