My Favorite Movie Inspirations for Fashion and Style

I love movies. I've always thought it would be so much fun to work in the movie industry doing hair and make up. Here is a list of some of my favorite movies that always fill me with inspiration.

Blade Runner: Futuristic movie with a mixture of modern and vintage style.
Daryl Hannah is amazing in this.

Cabaret: As unique and quirky as Liza Minnelli in style and sensibility.

Funny Face: Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire showcase her beauty and style in Paris.
A perfect combination. I remember as a child watching in awe the scene where she comes down
the steps in the red dress with the shawl floating behind her.

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: One of my all-time favorite Marylin Monroe movies, also
featuring Jane Russell. Wonderful costumes.
This is where Madonna snagged the material girl video idea.

Meet Me In St. Louis: One of my favorite Judy Garland movies. Clang Clang Clang went the Trolley!

My Fair Lady: This one is for Buffie, my best friend. Eliza Doolittle is an elegant style icon.

Sweet Charity: I love this musical with Shirley MacLaine. Some of the scenes like the one above
were really before their time and pushing the envelope of style.

The Group: Not a musical, a more obscure movie about a group of friends. I would say this
is the precursor to Sex and the City. The hair and fashion is amazing. Candice Bergen is
gorgeous as always.

Valley of the Dolls: A 1960's inspiration of hair and makeup.

White Christmas: Love the singing, dancing and of course the costumes. This movie features
well know actors/singers like Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye, & Bing Crosby.
Vera-Ellen is the more unknown, but amazing dancer above.
