What to Watch: Fashion Influencers Share Their Favorite Movies


Ask any designer about their influences and they will routinely mention art, music, and even other (generally defunct) designers. But one medium influences fashion above all others: cinema. The glamour, romance, and intensity of emotion, the never-ending catalogue of images — when it comes to getting inspiration for shooting, styling, and art-directing fashion campaigns and editorials, or designing collections, the fashion crowd will mention a slew of high-brow films in a single breath. With the holidays offering ample hours to catch up on your movie-watching wish list, we asked some prominent fashion professionals — from Katie Grand to Cecilia Dean — for their favorite movies, and the ones they see quoted most frequently. Click ahead, and then hunker down in a Netflix haze for the rest of the year.
