Coco Before Chanel (2009)
Who hasn’t heard of Coco Chanel? But how many of you know the history of this brand and the story of the woman who first wore trousers and how she redefined elegance and style by taking inspiration from men’s outfits. This is a biopic, a film about success, about how ideas are born and how the pinnacle is reached. If you haven’t seen it yet then I highly recommend it, it’s well worth it.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
Breakfast at Tiffany’s I’ve also recommended here, it’s an old film, but a film with style, a film about sophistication and a lot of elegance, it’s the style of the main protagonist Holly. With a childlike air, Holly is very ambitious, she knows what she wants out of life, she loves luxury and wears the most beautiful Givenchy outfits and accessories, she dreams of marrying a rich gentleman, but her life is turned upside down when she meets Paul. It remains to find out who Paul is and see the story between them.
