Pink Narcissus (1971)
Long before the selfie there was Narcissus, a mythical figure so enamored with his beauty that he got lost in it forever. In 1971, filmmaker James Bidgood queered the legend with his cult classic Pink Narcissus, transforming him into a hustler in a story that has now bled its way into modern fashion. Bidgood's lavish aesthetic (and his tale's Greek roots) can be seen in gold laurel wreaths and jewels from Gucci and in the pastel-pink frescoes adorning Moschino's latest shirts. Over the top? Yes, but these looks won't make you lose yourself so much as find the you you've been looking for.
