    quite predictable for Kors to choose "Shampoo" but i quite liked jacobs choice with "The bitter Tears of Petra von Kant" it was ridiculously camp and i got hysterical and started laughing when i should be silent and shocked... :ninja:

    slightly off topic but i hope not too much...i think two of the most stylish movies of our time came out the same year: the thomas crown affair and the talented mr. ripley....any other nominations?

    André will most likely call upon Miuccia Prada hence they are pretty good friends.

    Sounds like a good idea.

    Which makes me want to ask you all,which designer would you want to partner up with and which film would you screen together?

    No surprises here,but I would have to say Jurgi and would choose either "The Birds",David Cronenberg's "Dead Ringer's" or "Lost Highway" :ninja:

    the bitter tears is soooooooooo tom ford... when i watch that movie, all i think about is tom ford's last satiny collection for ysl [the velvet jackets and rhinestone mermaid dresses]. well, that and diana ross.

    fashion designers are so predictable in their "cool" fashion taste... i swear, is there trend forecasting for films, books, artists, and albums that all designers and lovers of fashion should love??

    scott-i don't think miuccia's got time to fly over from milan to give a little speech about a movie she likes...if you know what i mean... think it will have to be someone from ny where the event is taking place and maybe it's not so easy to choose...maybe narciso?...donna?...(alittle boriing)zac and the proenza boys would probably be into it, but they haven't been in the 'biz' very long..it's alittle early for them to be reflecting back on their influences...

    :lol:

    what i wonder is who's on the guest list, because it's probably invitation only... :innocent:

    i would team up with Alber Elbaz (Lanvin) and maybe show "blue angel" , "the Cabaret" or "gatsby"

    if i was invited by a stylist, i'd love to screen one of those here:
    *The Great Gatsby
    *Chelsea Girls (by Andy Warhol)
    *Three women (Altman)
    *Delicatesen (french cult movie)
    *Hairspray (Walters)

    * or -cliche cliche- any movie with Audrey H. (filmed in Paris)

    I thought of that after I posted. Seems quite boring if its just NY designers.

    Yes I remember Unzipped quite well :lol:

    Lena,love "Delicatessen"

    seriously, though, i worked with a designer on a collection that was inspired by a little known film called 'twilight of the ice nymphs'...i think it's by this odd canadian director, she would know more than i would...just the name brought up all kinds of incredible images... that was an amazing experience... i guess i'd do that with her...although, i don't know if anyone would come see us.... :lol:

    i haven't seen many of the older films...but i always loved hitchcock's blondes sort of style...and more recently..."Down With Love" and "Moulin Rouge" both paying homage to beautiful eras of fashion design...then there's more specific ones like "Pleasentville" and "Cold Mountain"...i always like "Ghostworld" very simple and different.

    i'd love to do Renais' "Hiroshima mon amour" with Kawakubo - very vaguely if at all connected to cdg* stylewise but as intimate and profound as her approach to fashion. also since her husband is French.
    or may be star wars with Sohia Kokosalaki.
    as to Marc's choice, it's so strange that i never noticed the campness of it, having watched it several times. and now it just dawns :) on silly-never-much-around-dykes me. wait, is dyke an inappropriate word? so unPC of faggoty me. anyway, i think Fassbinder is a great grown-up choice revealing Marc's other side.

    I do love Moulin Rouge and FunnyFace, but that's definetly a "cliche-cliche", apparently. :lol: Maybe Yohji, but I still don't know what film to choose. :unsure: Probably, Jean-Luc Godard's "Breathless" or Jean Renoir's "The Rules of the Game".. just because I really want to see those films. :cry:
