The Denver Westwood (think Village Voice, but Colorado) makes an interesting point today in their style pages: The best movies for fashion aren't usually "fashion movies." The Devil Wears Prada had a killer pair of Chanel boots, and a lot of forgettable, over-the-top ensembles - the kind pronounced with a faux French accent. Clueless and Legally Blonde are gleeful style spoofs, and movies about models usually involve some red lipstick, a wifebeater, and a lot of drugs (Gia comes to mind immediately, but there must be more). Meanwhile, every time we watch Almost Famous, we run to our closets and wonder, "How can we make it real?" The new Edith Piaf movie, Ma Vie En Rose, had a similar, though slightly more subtle, effect on our outfits. Zac Posen once told us his style is influenced by former film costumers like Bob Mackie, and Galliano often references old movies in his collections. But what do you watch when you need a new outfit idea?
