My Favorite Movies

The Baxter: Cute romantic comedy, perfect for a date. Michelle Williams is great in this movie.

Breakfast at Tiffany's: Classic, everyone's favorite movie. All of the clothes in the movie would still look great today. Love the spare apartment with the bathtub sofa.

Blame it on Fidel
: In 1970, an upper class French family gives up their comfortable life. Neat houses, great clothes.

Chocolat: Totally hot, cool house.

Fame: Fun, old movie. Awesome soundtrack.

Grey Gardens: Two eccentric ladies, members of Jackie Kennedy's clan, living in a run-down mansion in the Hamptons.

L'Avventura: Classic, Italian. Won the Jury Prize at the 1960 Cannes Film Festival. Antonioni's masterpiece. But most importantly, great clothes- a room full of women in little black dresses and pearls looks so classy. Only in Italy, or only in 1960?

La Vie en Rose: The life of Edith Piaf. Paris.

Legally Blonde: Reece Witherspoon. Surprisingly great fashion ideas, fun movie.

Rabbit-Proof Fence: Such a cute movie, with the cutest little Australian girls ever. A little bit sad.

Also, anything by Pedro Almodovar,especially: All About My Mother, Talk to Her, and Volver; the John Hughes Brat Pack movies- Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink.
