Fashion Shows in Films

August 28, 2012 10:45 AM

Every once in a while I will be watching an old film and right in the middle of the film there is this awkwardly placed fashion show. I believe they were intended to showcase the costume designer's work who created the clothing for the actors in the film. I love this idea. And who doesn't love a good fashion show. Here is a list of movies that feature fashion shows. This list was compiled by my cousin, Kris DeForest, who knows about film. Enjoy and please let us know if we have left a movie off the list.
