Fashion At The Movies

Many critics agree the best fashion film that’s ever been done is  The Devil Wears Prada, but if there’s ever going to be a contender (I believe there are several) , it seems likely to come out of 2015. Right now, movies about designers seem, dare we say, fashionable. Films on Coco Chanel, Bergdorf Goodman, Bill Cunningham, Iris Apfel and Valentino have been praised as windows into this illustrious group. Our interest with the subject matter relays heavily on our fascination with fashion,  the lives of its protagonist, their struggles, their successes and their loses which are inter winded in a mostly colorful and irreverent madness.
