6 Iconic Fashion Movies That Are Basically Like Being at Fashion Week
With Fashion Week’s arrival, the FOMO for those of us not in attendance gets very real. Sure, there’s a seemingly unending supply of social feeds to fill the void, but sometimes it’s even better to lose yourself in a stylish cinematic experience for a bit. Whether you’re looking to psych yourself up for the upcoming shows or just kick back and indulge your sartorial sensibilities, we’ve rounded up six films that will make you feel like you’ve got a front row seat this season.
1. Sex and the City: Pretty much every episode of Sex and the City was like being at Fashion Week, so the full-length feature is more like Fashion Month. Over two hours of swoon-worthy looks, gifted to us by the incomparable Patricia Fields. The designer label appearances read like a Who’s Who of the industry and we’re even treated to one gratuitous — but thoroughly enjoyable — fashion montage of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) trying on everything in her wardrobe in an effort to clean out her closet (literally and figuratively). Of course, there’s also the New York Fashion Week scene, set at a runway show where the ladies are front and center. If you’re looking to live vicariously through ultra-stylish characters, this film is basically fashion porn. (Photo via Brian Ach/WireImage)
