Film Trends

Audery Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's (FabAudery, 2007)
Sixteen Candles (released in 1984) has been described as the first movie to focus on white, middle-class teenagers (even the weirdos) and was therefore a big break in film fashion. Molly Ringwald's character makes her own clothing, but in reality the styling in this film was cutting edge.

Writer and director John Hughes made several films during the 80s, each making a winner out of the high school "loser". (Gross 2004)

The 1960s, at the beginning, was dominated largely by Parisian designers - aimed at the elite, wealthy crowd. This was evident in early ‘60s films, such as “La Dolce Vita”. Styling in later ‘60s films like “Rosemary’s Baby”, in which Mia Farrow’s styling has more of a British influence. The gamine look became more apparent and structure in fashion changed, resulting in looser lines and short skirts.

The shape of clothing was also influenced by new ideas emerging from the London pop scene. During the 60s in Britain, musical tastes and dress styles were closely linked. The mod look made iconic in the 60s had an important presence in film fashion throughout the decade, as evident in films such as “The Graduate” and “Lolita”.

Revlon experts gave the housewives of the 60s advice like, A simple blending of a concealer cream and foundation will eliminate unsightly rings from large glasses. So if you fancy big sun shades, feel free to wear them. (Lawrence 1967)

Video for Cyndi Lauper's "The Goonies R Good Enough", which was released at the same time as the film. The video, marks the return of rebellion to the screen, and music in film. (London 1985)

Flashdance, released in 1983, proved to be quite important to 80s fashion. Jennifer Beals' off-the-shoulder, oversized baggy sweatshirt still gets appropriated to this day. This classic was also responsible for legwarmers. (Gastro Chic 2009)

The 80s certainly held its own with dance musical films, with the release of Staying Alive, Flashdance, Dirty Dancing and Footloose. (Filmsite 2014)

Top hits in music on film during the 1980s included songs by Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, David Bowie and Prince. Many artists recorded songs or albums to be released at the same time as a feature film, as either the soundtrack or an accompanying release. (Time Out New York 2014)

The late 1980s marked the second time Director Tim Burton teamed up with composer Danny Elfman, for the film "Beetlejuice" (released in 1988) - Burton and Elfman went on to work together almost exclusively throughout the next decades. (Bleek 2013)

Think about the popular movies from the nineties. Have you ever noticed that a song from these movies may pop into your head.

Say a Little prayer (My Best Friend's Wedding 1997), Pretty Woman (Pretty Woman 1990) and we can't forget Supermodel from the famous (Clueless 1995)
Films during the decade of 2000-2010 saw a trend in releases of comic book and fantasy films. In these types of film, the style of beauty for women was largely “quirky” or futuristic. Coloured hair, asymetrical and bold haircuts. Releases included Sin City, The Dark Knight, 500 Days of Summer and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

This decade was also the emergence of the “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” - a phrase coined in 2007 by film critic Nathan Rabin, described as “a fantasy figure who “exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.”
(Rabin 2007)
The 2000s had a large retro influence, and the doe-eyed look was made popular again by characters played by Kirsten Dunst and Zooey Deschanel.

"Sin City" was one of many comic or book-themed films to emerge in the decade of 2000s. Others included: "The Dark Knight", "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" and "The Lord of the Rings".

Online sources were assessed for credibility by using a simplified checklist based on the

. Each source was evaluated for the following:

Whether the views are presented
objectively or as opinion

(Metzger 2007 p.3)
“In 1995, the film '
' inspired a revival of women's preppy clothing. The lead character, Cher Horowitz, had a profound influence on women's fashion and she is considered a fashion icon of the 1990s. The film and character popularized knee-high socks, thigh-high socks, blazers and skirts in matching plaid patterns, collared shirts, and micro miniskirts.”
(The Fashion Spot 2010)
Though the '90s was not renowned for being on par with the '60s or '70s, film wise, it was a time when Directors such as Martin Scorsese and Robert Altman released some of their best work.

More importantly though, the '90s marked the emergence of several new filmmakers who brought with them a new "quirky" dimension to American films. Among this list are Quentin Tarantino, who brought in with him an entire new category of films, the Coen brothers, and Wes Anderson. (The AV Club 2012)

It is known that, during the production of Wes Anderson's "Rushmore", Disney would not approve a scene involving a helicopter as it would have cost $75,000. Actor Bill Murray, whom had previously said he loved the innovative script so much that he would have acted in the film for free, wrote a blank cheque to Anderson to cover the cost. (IMDB 2014)

“…If you were to just sit and listen to all of Howard Shore's music for the epic trilogy of music for Peter Jackson's stunning adaptation… A lilting pastoral masterpiece that embodies the pastoral surroundings of the Shire and the extraordinary journey ahead in just a few minutes.” (Classic FM 2014)
The filming in
“The Lord of the Rings"
series was shot in over 150 different locations in and around New Zealand (Brian Sibley2002) within their conservation areas and national parks.

Due to the remote locations of some of the untamed landscape of New Zealand the crew had to take survival kits in case helicopters couldn’t reach the location to bring them home in time. (Brian Sibley 2002)
