As I was saying earlier, today I’m trying to gather as many inspiring ideas as I can for the weekend. And more. One of the things I love doing the most during my off-duty time is watching a movie or a TV series episode (that’s mostly for ‘when the kids are asleep and all the work around the house is done or I’m too beat up to lift a finger, let alone dust&clean’).
Let’s talk movies, for a brief moment: Marc Jacobs, my dahlings, is starring in a movie. Actually, he already did the acting thing, now it’s up to us to do the watching. ‘Disconnect’ is the name, and it just ran a special screening at the MoMa last night.
Directed by Henry Alex Rubin (Girl, Interrupted, Murdeball), the movie’s cast also includes professional actors: Jason Bateman, Paula Patton, Alexander Skarsgard, Michael Nyqvist and so many more and a pretty solid plot. But I won’t get to the plot yet because I don’t want this piece to be a spoiler but an incentive.
The movie is set for release on April 12th and although Marc Jacobs’ character, Harvey – from what I read – isn’t of the ‘guy next door’, there are some pretty notable observations to be made about his style. His character’s style: Marc Jacobs, my dahlings, is wearing something Marc never thought he’d wear: dad jeans, Nike sneakers and hoodie jacket! Because you see, fashion designers are nothing like us: they can wear skirts, see-through lace dresses on the Red Carpet, lipstick and whatever else flights their fancy, but they only wear normal, ordinary clothes when they’re in a character’s skin. Not their own. No-no!:
‘There were endless wardrobe meetings. There were, like, hundreds of outfits. My staff all completely laughed because they had seen me in like, a beaded bra and sequined shorts for a cabaret costume I was going out in on Halloween. Nobody batted an eyelash. But to see me in like, an acid-washed jacket with a hoodie attached, and dad jeans and Air Jordans — they were in hysterics! With like, knuckle rings and earrings. Everybody thought it was the funniest thing they’ve ever seen.’
