Stylish Films: Chicago

For today's stylish film, I really want to feature my favorite musical, Chicago. To be honest, I haven't seen this film up until about three months ago. I know, I'm VERY late. It's been out since 2001, and I mean, I've always wanted to watch it, but just never have...and now, 13 years later I finally got around to it! Haha! But while I would usually say Rocky Horror Picture Show and Sweeney Todd are my favorite musicals, I really just had to push those to the side for Chicago. I now have to watch this film at least once a week, and I also have the soundtrack on my iPod, so when I'm driving (alone) I always sing all of the songs at the top of my lungs and basically re-enact the whole musical, and yes I get some weird stares, but clearly they just don't understand. It's the best.

But, besides overall being one of the greatest films I've ever watched, I can't help but notice the style, of course. I'm already obsessed with the whole 20's-30's era of style and how sparkly and detailed dresses and costumes were, so that was definitely a big eye-catcher in this film. Everything about this whole film and it's style is that it's all so fierce and fabulous. Also, the fur, the big collars, the top hats and bowties...all so classic and wonderful. And it doesn't just stop with the clothes. Catherine Zeta-Jones now has me contemplating getting that fabulous little bob of her's in this musical. If only I could pull a hairstyle like that off...getting ready in the morning would be so much easier!

Anyways, I would love to know, what are y'all's favorite musicals? I'm on this big musical thing right now and I just want to watch them all! Let me know in the comments! Hope you all are having a nice week!


  1. I have to agree when it comes to the 20s / 30s style. There's just something about that era that I am in love with as well. Everyone's seemed to feel comfortable in the clothes that I feel comfortable in now, only in today's time people as me why I'm dressed up. They all dressed so nicely and I really am in love with it.

  2. Oh my goodness, absolutely love this musical/soundtrack. I think Les Miserables is my favourite {and I'm not just saying that post-movie release}. Other top favs are Phantom of the Opera and Rent. There are so many goodies! All that jazz!!!!! Happy Wednesday!

  3. Ahh, love musicals - I actually don't know anything about this one, though! Favorites would have to be Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, and Little Women.

  4. I know it's a bit cliched but my favourite musical is The Sound of Music :) I just love it so much, it's so cheesy and corny, but for me that's what makes it so good... And the music! I'm actually not a huge musical person, but I'm always up for tSoM! Thanks for sharing, I really need to watch Chicago!
