Five Fashion Flicks for a Snow Day

With most of the East Coast under a winter storm watch, the next few days seemed suitable to curling up on the couch with a good movie.  Below are a few of my fashion flick favorites.  Hope you enjoy!

The September Issue

Walk the halls of Vogue with Anna Wintour (Editor-in-Chief) and Grace Coddington (Creative Director) as they work their symbiotic magic to take the 820-page September issue of 2007 to press.  Riveting.

“More is more, less is a bore!” At nearly 96 years of age, Iris Apfel is still going strong.  Through her business travel, Iris began buying pieces of distinctive, non-Western, artisanal clothes which she wore to clients’ high-society parties.  And just like that, an irreplicable legend of clothing, accessories and furnishings was born!
