How many times do you put into a conversation one or more quotes taken from your favorite movies? And if you are a Fashion lover you certainly have a fair amount of inspriations to include into your dialogues!
Can we just talk about (almost) every quote from “The Devil Wears Prada”? Or about the style rules written down by Carrie & Co.? Or the aphorisms that we heard in the biopics of the most famous designers? As you see, every fashion talk could become a back and forth made of cinematographic quotes!
So, which are the most known fashion quotes that have made a film famous?
Title: Troop Beverly Hills
Who: Phyllis Nefler
Quote: “I may be a beginner at some things, but I’ve got a black belt on shopping”.
Why we like it: Doing shopping is comparable to doing sports, don’t you agree? The long walks through the city’s streets, the fights against rivals during the sales and the heavy bags carried back home… So, when will they give us a black belt for our effort?
Titolo: Sex and the city – il film
Chi: Big e Carrie
Quote: “Should we get you a diamond? Carrie Bradshaw: No. No. Just get me a really big closet!”
Why do we like it: diamonds are overrated, if your boyfriend really loves you he has to give you a wardrobe big enough to contain not only clothes, but also shoes and accessories. Pay attention men because, despite love not being a materialistic thing, if you really want to conquer your woman you have to propose her inside her new wardrobe: she will say “Yes” immediately, guaranteed!
Title: Mean Girls
Who: Karen Smith
Quote: “On Wednesdays we wear pink”
Why we like it: “Get In losers, we are going shopping!” Regina George and the other Plastics made us laugh a lot and, despite the film being a comedy, it had such an impact on people that a real recurrence was created: wearing pink on Wednesdays! Just think that for the 10th anniversary of the movie’s release (Guess what day it was?), there was a special hashtag to celebrate the event… 100% iconic!
Title: The Devil Wears Prada
Who: Miranda Priestly
Quote: “You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don’t know… that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean. And you’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent… wasn’t it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.”
Why we like it: how to turn off a person thanks to your style knowledge in less then a second. With this phrase Miranda shows the best of her wickedness and she confirms herself as the queen of the fashion system: we have so much to learn from her, starting with the fact that the floral for spring is “ground breaking” (Ironically speaking)! Besides, we should all have a Nigel in our lives: and something of Chanel also, because we desperately need it.
Title: Confessions of a Shopaholic
Who: Becky Bloomwood
Quote: “You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well, that’s what it’s like when I see a store. Only it’s better. A man will never love you or treat you as well as a store. If a man doesn’t fit, you can’t exchange him seven days later for a gorgeous cashmere sweater. And a store always smells good. A store can awaken a lust for things you never even knew you needed.“
Why we like it: now, we don’t want to say that a relationship is less important than shopping but.. How many times do we go shopping when we need consolation? And how many times buying something makes us happy, but really happy? It is true that when you shop “the world gets better”! But be careful of not exceeding, or you will have to sell all your treasures.
Title: Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Chi: Holly Golightly
Quote: “If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then – then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!”
Why we like it: Recent medical studies confirm that going to Tiffany is a cure against mean reds. Whether you want to go there for breakfast or just to sigh in front of wonderful diamonds, Tiffany is definitely one of those places that make us dream and hope in any part of the world!
Title: Coco Avant Chanel
Who: Coco Chanel
Quote: “Fashion fades, only style remains the same and I just ask to be imitated. It would be the proof of my success.”
Why we like it: It is perhaps one of the most famous fashion quotes ever. Coco Chanel with her vision and her collections changed forever the fashion world and the conception of feminine style; she is still admired today and she is a reference not only for designers, but also for any fashion lover. The proof of her success has therefore been confirmed!
Title: Addams Family Values
Who: Wednesday Addams
Quote: “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color.”
Why we like it: This is not a quote, this is a way of living. Black is suitable for everyone, with everything and it’s perfect for every occasion. You don’t have to be as gloomy as Wednesday to recognize its infinite potential: and if a darker color was truly invented? We would certainly flaunt it!
