We go to the movies to get lost in other worlds, to become fully immersed in the glamorous, illusion and costumes are a part of that effect. Whether it’s the full skirts and floral hairstyles showcased in Frida, or the sparkly disco dresses featured in El Cantante, these are the movies that inspired us to get dressed.
This dreamy, fantastic biopic of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is as stylish as it is complicated. While Kahlo may be considered a style icon today, with her braided updos, flowers pinned in her hair, and rebozos – a look that landed her on the cover of Vogue – it was revolutionary at the time. The 2002 movie shines a light on the artist’s radical approach to life and how her sartorial choices were an outlet for her expression.
