Ridley Scott is known for directing excellent movies and switching genres seemingly effortlessly. His latest work, House of Gucci, proves that Scott hasn't lost any of his directing mastery. The captivating movie tells the story of Patrizia Reggiani (played by Lady Gaga), who decides to kill her husband, a grandson of the famous designer Guccio Gucci.
The movie draws the audience in, keeping them interested until the end. It helps that it has an excellent cast — in addition to Lady Gaga, it also stars Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Salma Hayek, Jared Leto, and many others. For viewers whoenjoyed the movie and want to see other stories taking place in the world of fashion, there are multiple great movies to choose from, including those below.
7 Funny Face (1957)
Funny Face is, as its title suggests, funnier and more light-hearted than House of Gucci, but it is still an undeniable classic that all fashion fans should watch. The film stars two legends of the silver screen, Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire.
The story is somewhat simple. Audrey Hepburn plays a librarian named Jo who becomes a fashion model thanks to the photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire). Funny Face creates a strong atmosphere of a time long gone. Even more importantly, it has a lot of catchy songs, since it's also a musical. If anybody's looking for the ultimate feel-good fashion movie, this is it.
6 The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
This movie is less serious than House of Gucci, but it still works around a similar topic. Young Andy (Anne Hathaway) joins a fashion magazine and gradually transforms into a different person, although not necessarily a better one.
The movie has become a classic in its genre since its release. A large part of its fame is thanks to Meryl Streep, who shines as Andy's stylish, intelligent, cold boss Miranda Priestly. Finally, the movie has a lot of beautiful outfits that are a joy to look at for everybody who enjoys fashion.
5 Coco Before Chanel (2009)
Just like her namesake, Audrey Hepburn, Audrey Tautou starred in many great movies. In this one, she plays the titular famous figure, who became the first major female fashion designer at a time when such a thing was still unusual.
Just like Funny Face, Coco Before Chanel creates a strong atmosphere of the past. What makes this movie different is that it draws from real events, offering the audience a glimpse into the extraordinary life of Coco Chanel. Those who enjoy the film and want to see more of this topic should also check out the 2008 two-part movie Coco Chanel.
4 Yves Saint Laurent (2014)
All fashion fans will be familiar with the name of the French designer Yves Saint Laurent and his work. This French biopic focuses on the life of Saint Laurent — not only his work, but also his personal life and relationships. Pierre Niney gives an excellent performance as the titular iconic designer, and the movie provides a unique view into the world of French fashion of the second half of the 20th century.
Because it includes multiple facets of Saint Laurent's life, this film is a good way to get to know the designer better even, both for fans of the designer as well as viewers who don't know much about him. Another movie that focuses on Yves Saint Laurent is titled Saint Laurent and stars Gaspard Ulliel. Both films premiered in 2014, so it's interesting to compare the two movies and the way they approach the topic.
3 The Dressmaker (2015)
Kate Winslet is one of the most talented actresses of her generation, and she never disappoints. In this movie, Winslet stars as the titular dressmaker who comes back to her home city in Australia in order to discover the truth about her past.
The movie manages to combine several genres, such as drama, romance, and (dark) comedy. It has a lot of excellent actors — in addition to Winslet, it also features Liam Hemsworth, Judy Davis, and Hugo Weaving. The Dressmaker is a strong story about the difficult life of one woman, who has the talent to create extraordinary things and change the world around her.
2 The Neon Demon (2016)
The world of modeling is incredibly competitve, and filled people who would do anything to reach the top. At least, that's viewers see in this dark and captivating movie, which offers beautiful visuals as well as multiple horror scenes.
The Neon Demon centers on a young model named Jesse (Elle Fanning). She arrives in Los Angeles, quickly draws attention to herself, and starts working, but things aren't as simple as they seem. The movie might seem difficult to comprehend at times, but if the audience is open to it, they will get a unique experience with excellent actors, including Jena Malone and Keanu Reeves alongside Fanning.
1 Phantom Thread (2017)
Daniel Day-Lewis usually chooses demanding roles in fascinating movies, and Phantom Thread is no exception. Day-Lewis stars as brilliant fashion designer Reynolds Woodcock, who mostly separates himself from others and whose closest person is his sister. However, when Reynolds meets a waitress named Alma (Vicky Krieps), things start to change.
Whoever expects a typical romantic comedy will be in for a shock here. Instead Phantom Thread is a psychological drama with excellent performances and characters who aren't always sympathetic, but remain fascinating nevertheless. The fashion in the movie brings it to an even higher level — it's no wonder Phantom Thread won an Oscar for best costumes.
