Oscar-winning fairy tales four times Funny face is a fashion enthusiast ideal movie. Cinderella’s story of a beatnik bookkeeper transforms into a fashion model, with Paris as her background. The film was made by eight-time Academy Award winner Edith Head, however, haute couture the dress worn by Hepburn was created by French design icon Hubert De Givenchy, with whom Hepburn had a lifelong friendship. An entertaining time capsule of the 1950s that still plays very well in modern times, even if you are not a fan of Givenchy’s stylish color overlay, Parisienne charm and fresh music figures, it must be fun.


Red, Green, Gold-The Wiz (1978) Universal Pictures / Motown Productions-Directed by Sidney Lumet. Starring: Dianna Ross, Michael Jackson, Ted Ross and Nipsey Russel.


The all-black players present the urban version of the “Wizard of OZ.” This is not merely a fashion film, but there is one scene that deserves fame because of the accurate portrait of the fierce 70s style (lget more about the ’70s mode here). Filmed between the Twin Towers of New York City, the production required more than 600 dancers and more than 120 clothing handlers. The work was very large, because of the speed of sound, 22 speakers had to be hidden in sets so that dancers could hear the playback simultaneously. With their feet as if approaching their eyeballs, the female dancers rival the height of their male counterparts, who are strongly supported by a combination of the gospel-filled Quincy Jones R&B disco. Set and costume designers Tony, Emmy, and Oscar winners Tony Walton collaborated with designer Seventh Avenue, including the remarkable 70s fashion icon Oscar De La Renta. Sophisticated, elegant, Red, Green, Gold will captivate your attention from the bass-laden opening to the climax of high-energy “Gold Gold”. That is the best!


Cute girl (1968) Columbia Pictures-Directed by William Wyler. Starring: Barbara Streisand and Omar Sharif.

This is Streisand’s first film and he explodes to the scene. Playing the role of a real-life star and comedian Ziegfeld Follies, Fanny Brice, Streisand is unmistakably primed and ready for her film debut. The comic time is perfect and the musical expressions are fun. Orchestration cleverly prevails in a rough Broadway hue, resulting in smooth cohesion. With dramatic costumes by Irene Sharaff, and lavish sets by William Kiernan, every scene is absolutely delicious. Although Sharaff is a veteran actor Streisand dominates the film, earning every inch of his diva status, won an Academy Award for best actress (which he tied with Katherine Hepburn).


Tooth (1958) MGM-Directed by Vincente Minnelli. Starring: Leslie Caron and Louis Jourdan.

Located in Paris during La Belle Epoque (The Beautiful Age) Tooth (Leslie Caron) is a young prostitute in training. From the opening scene, Gigi drips with Edwardian clothing created by productive Cecil Beaton. However, it is not only the wasp waist shape in this film that is spectacular; Art Nouveau set too extraordinary. Smart, humorous, and luxurious, Gigi is a visual feast.


My Fair Lady (1964) Warner Bros-Directed by George Cukor. Starring: Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn.

Located in London in the early 20th century, a phonetic instructor, convinced he could create a respectable high society woman, accepted the challenge of a poor Cockney flower girl. Once again, Cecil Beaton created extraordinary fancy costumes, especially paying attention to accentuate Hepburn’s long neck and slender body. The iconic ascot headpiece Audrey itself is a perfect millmill creation, rich in unusual details, can only be worn without stitching clothes. The ascot horse racing scene with a timeless white-to-white set, black and white and gray costumes and elegant performances resembling Vogue-like photoshoots. With more than 1000 custom made costumes and fancy visual sets, it might make you forget the storyline.


Cleopatra (1963) Fox of the 20th CenturyDirected by Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Starring: Elizabeth Taylor, Rex Harrison and Richard Burton.

Epic, luxurious and obscene. With a total of more than 26,000 costumes and more than 60 beautiful costume changes specifically for Taylor. Considering today’s inflation, Taylor’s wardrobe alone is feasible more than $ 1 million. For the most famous film scene, Cleopatra’s entrance to Rome, alongside coordinating dresses and headdresses, Oscar-winning New England native customer, Irene Scharaff, created The 24 carat gold robe, made of thin panels of leather painted in gold resembling the wings of the Phoenix, was adorned with thousands of golden beads and hand-sewn sequins. The influence of Cleopatra’s fashion does not end with this film, taking real opportunities, fashion lines, and make-up manufacturers to serve willing and passionate viewers. However, the biggest irony of Cleopatra is that the story behind the camera is far more interesting than that colossal business the film itself.


Aunt Mame (1958) Warner Bros: Directed by Morton DaCosta. Starring: Rosalind Russell

“Life is the poorest supper and the sucker starves to death!” Aunt Mame (Rosalind Russell) becomes the nanny of her young nephew after her ultra-conservative father dies. Progressive and eccentric, Mame opened a completely unusual and unconventional world to her niece. With a dazzling costume by Oscar-winning Orry Kelly three times, the film is cast perfectly with heartwarming scenes, intelligent intelligent dialogue, and stylish sets.
