Style advice from the movies

Fashions fade, style is eternal - but neither is acquired on a whim. Whether it's make-up tips you're after or some words of wisdom on the importance of colour, the world of movies is positively brimming with sartorial advice. While not all of it is practical (you can never wear enough blue eye shadow, according to My Girl) or rational (the only people who wear black are Manhattan career bitches, so says The Stepford Wives), these film-based style sayings are relentlessly entertaining. Check out our choice fashion words of wisdom from movies - the mad, the bad and the brilliant - below, and let us know your thoughts on Twitter or in the comments section.
