I can’t believe this is nearly 25 years old. It doesn’t look it (OK, apart from Tracey Ullman’s absurd ‘do). I’m no expert, but I’m sure the likes of Viv Westwood are still designing much the same type of clobber. I’ve never seen the film in full, and had the idea it would be rather pretentious. In truth, it was very funny in places, although some of the scenes with photographer and fashion editors were a little Benny Hill-esque. And given this was a Miramax production, you wonder what Harvey’s ‘involvement’ was. The ‘murder’ wasn’t particularly well done, as we saw what had happened at the time – hardly a ‘whodunnit’! And the start was rather chaotic, cutting between too many people. However, for the famous faces, the comedy and music, and the good humour with which the fashion world allowed itself to be mocked, I’ve given it 4 stars.
