Four: Legally Blonde (2001)
Elle Woods introduced the majority of us to the world of pink. Her fearless approach to dressing to express herself puts her in a category higher than other fictional fashionistas. It’s her sense of style and the spark in her personality (that never diminishes) that makes it so much fun to re-watch this movie, even so many years later. From the “Bend and Snap” to the power of monochromatic dressing, Elle Woods taught us a lot of things over the course of this unforgettable chick flick.
Five: Basic Instinct (1992)
This movie sends chills down my spine – for all the wrong reasons. Twenty-five years later, and I still find it hard to rate or categorize the movie, because so many aspects of the plot leave me wondering. Having said that, the movie did have some epic fashion moments. The first one that comes to mind is Sharon Stone clad in that sexy white number from the interrogation scene. Minimalist 90s perfection. Let’s all take a second to wipe the drool off, as we re-play her crossing and un-crossing her legs again and again. That loosely pinned ice blonde hair, the muted undertones of all her attires and the least possible use of jewellery; I was instantly floored by her fashion sense – not to forget the sex appeal. Other noteable fashion pieces were the silk Hermes scarf, the fluffy taupe shawl neck cardigan, and the pale knitwear. These are hardly standard reveals for the femme fatale that she plays in the movie, and in my personal opinion her true character surfaces when she appears in the white dress. Beautiful, smart and supremely confident. Is there a better woman to get your fashion inspiration from?
Six: Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009)
The story revolves around an inspiring fashion writer who just can’t have enough beautiful clothes, and at the same time can’t pay for even half of them. This movie is comedic and cute (and at times really funny) take on the life of Rebecca Bloomwood (played by Isla Fisher).
