10 of the most stylish movies of the 80s

The 1980s was an era of excess. Shaking out of disco bell bottoms and into a decade that embraced shoulder pads, supersized barnets and S&M bondage style (minimalism would have to wait a good ten years to return to the runway). I personally delight in the unapologetic glamour of it all; the punchy colour palettes, heavy blush, bold female tuxedos (Calvin Klein, thank you) and oversized silhouettes. Memo: too much is simply not enough. If you’re a fan of OTT frills and neo-power dressing for autumn / winter 2018 (see Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen), revisit the 80s style icons on screen, from Madonna to Richard Gere…
