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.
