Yesterday i watched a Finnish movie called Gold Digger on fmovies.se (free movies online). Its about a fashion blogger who is just copying all the prominent bloggers and who basically has nothing new to add to this world. One day she comes across a man who’s parents own a billion dollar company but the guy works in a furniture store because he is fed up with his mother and no one actually believes his new ideas. The girl is not working hard enough and the guy is being an escapist. It’s a funny yet a (little) thought provoking cinema. Seriously why do we blog ?! What is the point of blogging?! It made me start thinking. Most of the “style” or “fashion” bloggers just brag about what they have, what they bought, it’s a game of “how much can you show off.” Yes there is money and brand collaborations which actually helps the blogger meet her or his needs (read lifestyle). I’m also guilty of that. The gloss was so important to me at an younger age that I also posted shit on my previous blog www.styledoscope.blogspot.in . But shouldn’t we think that we are all becoming slaves of consumerism?! We are buying shit that we don’t need and creating a demand for it! I’m a fashion student but l am not ready to believe that’s only what fashion is for. Fashion designers liberated women from the cage of corsets, creates beautiful art with fabric and surface ornamentation, makes sure that the rich heritage of hand embroidery is still alive by giving jobs to artisans. Fashion is uplifting, it has to be.
Ok let’s come back to the film. Gold Digger used a lot of pastel shades. Hot pink and turquoise was used as accent colours. I loved how they portrayed a shallow wanna be famous fashion blogger’s room. I must say the styling was appropriately done.
Let’s enjoy few stills from the movie, shall we?
