Because of its extravagant shopping habits started after she drastic measures (like selling away their wardrobe!) To avoid that the past will overtake her.
We have all been on sale and felt the sharp elbows of supply shelves. This movie shows the extreme version of the shopping madness, and is an example of a lesson if at times leaving the credit card a little too frequent. Learn in case of Rebecca: Freeze card in a iskube!
5:Coco Before Chanel (2009)

She will be a symbol of progress and freedom, who is helping to create the modern woman – even after having cleared the way. The film is based on Edmond Charles-Rouxs biography of the famous designer.
During the recording was given access to Chanel’s own archives and collections, and the film is a treasure trove for anyone interested in design and history. With gorgeous Audrey Tautou in the lead role, the film is also really pleasing to the eye
Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) may seem like a dumb blonde. She is popular with the guys, running a great jeep that she has received from his rich daddy and she lives in the right district of Beverly Hills. But she’s actually more between the ears, even if most of the time devoted to glamor, makeup and clothes.Together with her friends she takes the mission to transform class gray mouse to a sparkling diva.
Clueless is simply a longing look back to the 90’s style with small backpacks, knee socks and accessories with feathers, and can be seen as a small study of 90-century fashion. If we do not directly longs for this style, so it is allowed to admire Cher’s impressive system in the wardrobe, and laugh a little of the superficial Beverly Hills Girls.
7:Sex and the City (2008)
The film begins where the series left off, and we pulled back into the New York-girls wonderful life filled with Louis Vuitton and Manolo Blahnik. Is there anyone who has taught us to appreciate girls shoes and accessories, it’s Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker). If we are equally benevolent to burn half the wages at one pair of shoes remains to be seen, but for any act happy girl is Sex and the City movies (and series!) Pays homage to everything we wish we could buy, and all we wish looked as good on us as on Carrie.
