In this new #mustwatch, we review the essential films for fashion lovers. And the best thing is that, for the first time, you won’t see in this list The Devil Wears Prada. Yes, there is life beyond that film.

Blow Up (1966) – Michelangelo Antonioni

We don’t know how Antonioni manages to create the magnetism that oozes Blow Up, but we do know some of its ingredients: erotic content, depth, art and a dream cast with Jane Birkin, Verushka or Redgrave.

Zoolander (2001) – Ben Stiller

The comic note is set by Ben Stiller with Zoolander, a film that offers a fresh and ironic perspective on the fashion industry. And not without precision.

Factory Girl (2006) – George Hickenlooper

Sienna Miller interpreta a la modelo Edie Sedgwick, musa de Andy Warhol, en una película de ficción que explora la vida de un icono de la moda. Factory Girl es imprescindible en esta lista.

Prêt-à-porter (1994) – Robert Altman 

If you’ve got something to hide, you’ll need something to wear. The film Prêt-à-porter reflects the fashion imaginary of the 90s and has gone down in history, among other things, for that surprising final scene that shows a carousel of nude models.

Desert Flower (2009) – Sherry Hormann
