There’s Lagerfeld Confidential. There’s also Signe Chanel and the Marc Jacobs x Louis Vuitton documentary by Loic Prigent. But have you seen the documentary produced in 1992 (yes, that’s seventeen years ago — I was two years old) about Yves Saint Laurent’s extraordinary, colourful and dramatic life? It’s a must for any fashion lover out there.
If you do not watch this emotional and tear-jerking film in its entirety now or later, I have one thing to say: YOU. ARE. DEAD. TO. ME.
And yes, I love you Suzy Menkes!!
“While other little boys played with tin soldiers, Yves busied himself with paper dolls. Ridiculed by schoolmates, the delicate child swore that one day that he would be famous. At the age of 18, indications of things to come: first prize at a sponsored Parisian fashion competition beating the 19 year old Karl Lagerfeld into second place where some would say he has remained.”
I need to see THIS film. I’m not really a big fan of sappy love stories (gimme a break, Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion is my fave film of ALL TIME) but Dans Paris made an impression on me. It’s the story of a man who broke up with his girlfriend in a small town in France. The guy moved to Paris where his father lives and both his dad & his womanizing bro (Louis Garrel… so so hot! Give me a piece of that!) tried to help him recover throughout his depression.
Meanwhile, this is so sad.
I just ordered a DVD online WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES so hopefully I’ll get it within the next few weeks.
I know it’s crazy because I’m not really a big Madonna fan but I love her more now after watching this old film. I’m probably the last person in the world who’s seen it but if you haven’t, here’s the entire movie that you may watch online, courtesy of YouTube. It’s hysterical! My favourite line: take a valium like a normal person. Hah!
I’m so disappointed with you guys! Why do I have this feeling that I’m the last person in the world to know about Muriel’s Wedding? It seems that everyone on my international network (natch!) have seen this 1994 camp Australian classic except for me!
“Wait!! Let her finish her orgasm…”
Awww poor Muriel. Now this clip is *so* HYSTERICAL! You guys have absolutely *NO* idea how I sometimes wish I had a real “real” job where I can meet hot guys people every day. A lot of folks think being a full-time blogger is like taking a stroll at the park where everything is piss-easy…
At 8 bucks a pop (free shipping if you’re in the US), I just bought the DVD online. Can’t wait to get it in the mail.
