Movies and fashion go hand in hand with one another. And sometimes when they crossover…it’s like sweet, sweet music to any fashion-lovers ears. Admit it, how many of you have muttered under your breath “By all means, move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me.” (Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada) when an annoying colleague is taking her time to get you the information you need. Or lamenting how “Sweatpants are all that fits me right now!” (Regina George, Mean Girls) the first day you’re back at work after the festive break.

While your best friends might enable you, or your family might unconditionally support you, sometimes the people that are the most relatable are the fictional hot messes from our favourite movies. Like us, these characters are also just trying to get through life one minute at a time. Here’s some that still get us years later.
