July Screening: Qui Etes-Vous Polly Maggoo?
Monday, July 02, 2007
It's that time of month again! Our July Fashion is Spinach film screening will be the ultra-mod Qui Etes-Vous Polly Maggoo?, a fabulous fashion frenzy about an American model in 1960s Paris. It's equal parts style and surrealism, and incredibly hard to find, so if lots of you come out, it will make the large amount of money I paid for the movie on eBay totally worth it.
The lovely Susie Bubble saw the movie awhile back and raved about it, if you want to check out her review. The film was written and directed by renowned fashion photographer William Klein, who recently resurfaced for a big shoot in Harper's Bazaar (it was featured in the June issue of Singapore Bazaar, and I think March in U.S. Bazaar). The film is in French (with English subtitles), but I just realized that we're showing it on Bastille Day, so it all works out perfectly. Extra points for those who show up in mini-dresses and mod eyelashes! You know I will be.
Here are the details. Please RSVP if you can. Hope to see you there!
