Top Movie Scenes with Coffee ‘N Clothes
Because of its importance in many of our lives, coffee was bound to infiltrate its way to the big screen and throughout the years managed to be a key artistic feature in the works of a myriad of filmmakers. There are countless iconic movies out there but a special few hold a dear place in our hearts thanks to the perfect match between memorable bean-related scenes and fashion-filled visuals. Here is our take on the top 5 Coffee ‘N Clothes collaborations in film history:
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Where else could we start if not with a classic: The opening credits of this transcendent movie feature the immaculate Audrey Hepburn (playing Holly) window-shopping at Tiffany’s. This specific scene became the talk of the town in the fashion industry, was featured in countless top magazines and throughout the years, became the most sought-after Halloween costume for women. Wearing a beautiful black Givenchy gown, a tiara and a pearl necklace, Hepburn’s allure perfectly clashed her “not-so-classy” breakfast that included a take-away coffee and a croissant. Gracefully looking at the sparkly Tiffany’s diamonds, that scene definitely sparkled in the audience’s eyes.
Devil Wears Prada
Who could ever forget the line: “Is there some reason that my coffee isn’t here, has she died or something?” uttered by the amazing Meryl Streep in what appears to be today’s most famous fashion movie, The Devil Wears Prada? From furs, bags and dresses, the movie is definitely a sight for sore eyes, and it leaves us wanting more. Miranda’s particular coffee order, “no-foam skimmed latte with an extra shot and three drip coffees with room for milk”, offered Starbucks the perfect window to advertise its iconic cups throughout this iconic movie.
One of the big screen’s fictional fashion icons is Amélie Poulin. With the character’s French bob, typical chic Parisian style, and eccentric doc Martins, the movie has left viewers in awe of such an understated yet edgy look. Apart from the fact that caffeine is infused throughout the whole movie (Amélie works at a coffee shop), a special scene definitely stuck with us: In an effort to be a matchmaker and bring two individuals together, Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) fakes an incident and spills hot coffee on Georgette (her coworker) in order to force her into the restroom where Joseph (the usual customer) happens to be. This incident turns into the perfect match made in heaven.
Quentin Tarantino’s classic movie had an immense impact on pop culture and fashion in the 90s. From the cast’s unique styles to Uma Thurman’s distinguishable Black Bob, Pulp Fiction is surely one of the most quoted movies of all time, especially for the following line: “Goddamn Jimmie, this some serious gourmet shit!” which Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) shouts as he is taking a sip from the coffee cup Tarantino’s character hands to him. We can definitely relate, who doesn’t like a good old cup of freshly grounded gourmet coffee?
Sex and The City
What better way to conclude this list then by referencing one of the most fueled movies in film history: Sex and The City. After 6 ultra-successful seasons, the franchise took the bold step of moving from the small screen to the silver screen, and what a move that was. From the opening credits up until the very last scene of the movie, the women’s outfits did nothing less than wow us. A special scene that stuck with us all had to be when Bradshaw interviews assistants at a local Starbucks. After she goes through a handful of inadequate applicants, she finally finds the right one: Louise from St Louis, unemployed and living with 3 roommates who revealed to her future boss that the only way she was able to afford her “patchwork denim Bowley Louis Vuitton Bag” is because it is quite simply a rental.
