stereotypical fashion blogger's movie list

You know them. You may like them. But you can't deny that the blog market is saturated with images of them. To a point where you may want to throw up or have already done so. It's the stereotypical fashion blogger's movie list/compilation of tumblr imges.


1. Marie Antoinette
Directed by Sofia Coppola, this has fashion written all over it. Pink, lace, bows, and all those pastries are all must have elements for any [wannabe] fashion girl.


2. The Virgin Suicides
Made internet immortal by Tavi from The Style Rookie who refers to it constantly, this film is great as it has wispy girls, religious imagery, and lots of pink things. Plus, it also has Kirsten Dunst. Again.


3. Breakfast at Tiffany's
While Audrey Hepburn was more than just a LBD, this film is sadly all anyone associates her with in the fashion crowd.


4. The Royal Tennanbaums
Vintage prep and Wes Anderson are the makings of great freeze frame images, and Gwenyth doesn't disappoint with that fur coat of hers, which just about sparked a faux fur revolution last year.


5. William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
Although this movie used to be a personal favorite of mine (what Gen Y-er didn't swoon over Leonardo DiCaprio in the late 90s? He was bigger than Bieber), my love for it nearly died when I saw it on every single 14-year-old's Tumblr this year. No references to the brilliantly written beginning or the patriarchal overtones or even the overt and glorified (I swear I'm not part of the PTC) drug use. At least point out the ridiculousness of having "I LOVE THEE" engraved on a ring. As if any Shakespearean character would have the balls to say anything so bold.

Honorable Mentions
The Notebook - I will tell everyone I hate this movie, but I will secretly watch it while PMS-ing.
Mean Girls
Black Swan - these photos seemed to have died out in popularity for the most part.
The Dior commercial by Sofia Coppola - not a film but I would like to stop seeing these images.

  1. Kirsten Dunst is pretty darn awesome (especially because she wears Patrik Ervell, who said girls can't wear guy's clothing without it being oversize and masculine?).

  2. hmm...~very interesting!
    I fell in love with all the 'epic' trunks shown in The Royal Tennanbaums!

  3. Can't argue with the list, having tumbled my share of images from all of these. Those Wes Anderson is still the best.

  4. shit i need to watch more films

  5. I'm glad I don't look at 14 year old's tumbler images.... oh the precious things the internet can ruin for you.

  6. U forgot Clueless.

  7. Breakfast at Tiffany's
    =stylish lessons :)

  8. Might I add 'Memoirs of a Geisha' though kind of forgotten. Exaggerated and historically inaccurate costumes- though I must say the cinematography is actually quite beautiful and Gong Li is hot. :P
