DIOR AND MORE: PREVIEW OF FASHION ON FILM AND TV
What's more fun than wearing high-end designer clothing that you scored for deep discounts at your fave consignment store, Naples, True Fashionistas? Not much, of course, but right up there are movies and TV shows about our darling designers. We love it when filmmakers give a nod to the artistic talents of fashion's haute couture creators, be it their somewhat complicated backstories (House of Gucci, 2021) or tragic endings (McQueen, 2018, the story of Alexander McQueen), plus many more over the years.
