Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards

Folding paper to create mini shoes for lizards to having a net worth of $200 million, the film takes us on a journey inside Manolo Blahnik’s genius mind and life. And honestly, we can’t blame ourselves for wanting to own at least one pair of Manolos.

The Politican

An irony of American political life, the show details Payton Hobart’s journey (played by Ben Platt) from student body president to running for New York state-senator. The episodes approach serious issues with humor… and on-point fashion. Mock neck turtlenecks paired with tailored blazers, tweed co-ords, matching pantsuits and colorful pencil skirts. We practically watched the 2 seasons just for the fashion alone.

Breakfast at Tifanny’s

Is there a single Audrey Hepburn movie without some serious fashion inspo? Rhetorical question, of course. If you haven’t watched any of her movies, we honestly don’t know what you’re doing! And we recommend a marathon night. Start with Breakfast at Tifanny’s. Why? Mainly for Hepburn’s iconic, black Givenchy dress.
