If fashion is your ride or die & beauty is your motto, then you are ready for every sartorial scenario. If that sounds like you, then give these five films & series a try. Your wardrobe will thank you
Fashion is universal, it is comforting and liberating. From simple earrings to a jaw-dropping scarf, everything is fashion, and only its crème de la crème qualifies to exist as part of Haute Couture. Couture is a language in its own right, with a Prada vastly varying from a Birkin and a Gucci, only by default of its exclusivity and style, and not the items concerned. If fashion is a language you speak, then these five films and series are perfect for you.
