Hot or Not? The METALLIC COMEBACK For Spring 2014 photo 1
Metallics were hot on the runways for the Spring/Summer 2014 fashion collections. A lot of the trends seem to be inspired by 90's fashion, something girls all over the internet have been showing off in their selfies for over a year now. One of the many trends from the glorious 90's were metallics. Fans, brace yourselves, because it seems like this shimmery look is making the ultimate comeback!

The Top 6 Best Fashion Movies

Photo taken by K. Lonardo

1. The September Issue:  This documentary follows the daily life of Anna Wintour; editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, as she develops fashion publication’s biggest issue of the year. Ms. Wintour has a reputation for being icy and private, but this documentary breaks down the wall she had created for decades by providing viewers with intimate interviews with this powerful icon. The September Issue also offers interesting behind the scenes looks at how fashion photo spreads are brought to life, and what it’s like to work in the fashion industry from perspectives of assistants, journalists, editors, and stylists.
2. The Devil Wears Prada:  This movie is funny, romantic, and is styled by Patricia Field, who is responsible for the legendary styling of Sex and the City; which solidified Sarah Jessica Parker’s long lasting career. Starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, The Devil Wears Prada is based on a “tell-all” book by a former assistant of Anna Wintour. This movie depicts the harsh reality of the fashion world, while showcasing amazing outfits and designers. Most of all, the film is inspiring and fun to watch.
3. Sex and the City: It seems like most women have seen this movie, but if you haven’t, you must! You don’t need to be familiar with Carrie Bradshaw or the television series to follow or enjoy this film. Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, has three best friends that she frequently paints the town with in New York City. The ladies go through tremendous ups and downs, while continuing to prove that certain friendships are filled with unconditional love (and style). Sex and the City features the most amazing fashion montages, outfits, and runway shows from beginning to end. It stays true to the comedic nature that made the series iconic. Plus, there is not one bad outfit in the whole film. Not one.
4. Valentino: The Last Emperor: This documentary follows the legendary designer during the process of his last collection for the iconic brand he built, and the trends he set for the Italian fashion industry. This man retired at the age of 75, after being at the top of the fashion industry for decades. Watching Mr. Valentino fiercely produce his last collection for his forever-worshipped label with precision and grace is not only inspiring; it’s absolutely breath-taking. Keep a box of tissues next to you.
5. Confessions of a Shopaholic:  Just like Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada, this film was styled by Patricia Field; meaning that the outfits will induce an insane amount of envy and jealousy. They might make you want to take your credit card out for a little shopping at first, but after seeing the amount of debt the main character is drowning in to look that fabulous will hopefully change your mind. This film is about a shopaholic/journalist, who is trying to avoid creditors while being hilariously addicted to shopping, and looking for romance. Confessions of a Shopaholic might sound like a cliché romantic comedy, but sometimes that genre just comes in handy.

6. Clueless: “As if” might be the biggest catch phrase of the nineties, and this movie is the quintessential fashion film of that decade. If you somehow missed it, it’s incredibly important that you watch it. Cher, a popular rich girl, attempts to give everyone a make-over while saying the most hilarious and ridiculous things imaginable. She has a walk in closet the size of a large bedroom, complete with a program that helps her get dressed in the morning.  Cher’s friends are loveable, and just as fashionable as she is. Clueless has it all—fashion, comedy, cheesy outfit montages, and endearing characters.
