STOP THE PRESSES. Sex and the City 2’s DVD release date was on October 26! Ok, I definitely overreacted there, especially since I’m sure I am not telling you anything you didn’t already know. But seeing that it was available to rent from the Redbox near my apartment the other day had me pause and recall that I hadn’t seen it. Me, a girl who gushes, sighs and cries at romantic comedies more than the average girl, one who also happens to love fashion and religiously watched the television show Sex and the City hadn’t seen the sequel to Sex and the City the Movie. And what’s even more, I don’t really care to watch it either. Instead it inspired me to want to watch movies that not only have great fashion, but are actually good, entertaining flicks with a plot, story-line and purpose (or at least one of those things). I wasn’t interested in the elaborate historical films like the Duchess or Gone with the Wind, those which always seem to win the Academy Award for Best Costume Design, but modern films with wearable fashions that make you cry, “I want to be her,” just because she owns the best wardrobe. This feeling immediately made me want to watch The Thomas Crown Affair.
The Thomas Crown Affair, starring Rene Russo and Pierce Brosnan, is a great remake from the same titled film of the 1960s which starred Faye Dunaway and Steve McQueen. The original is also a must see film for its fashion, glamour, good looking people, and smart plot; but the remake is oh so good for the exact same reasons and a great soundtrack! Plus the fashion designer who created the clothing for Russo’s character was none other than American designer and snarky Project Runway judge, Michael Kors. When the film launched in 1999 Kors had already been designing his Michael Kors womenswear line for close to 20 years. He was known for his own high-end ready-to-wear line as well as his driving success as the creative director for the French fashion house Celine during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
