‘House of Cardin’ Trailer: Sharon Stone and Naomi Campbell Praise Avant-Garde Fashion Icon
It’s been a decade since R.J. Cutler’s “The September Issue” and Matt Tyrnauer’s “Valentino: The Last Emperor” proved fashion documentaries could be big moneymakers at the box office. The years following brought the release of many glamorous entries into the genre, including “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel,” “Bill Cunningham New York,” “The Gospel According to Andre,” and “McQueen.” Hoping to make a similar splash is “House of Cardin,” an authorized documentary about the legendary Italian-born French designer, Pierre Cardin. IndieWire is premiering this exclusive first-look trailer ahead of the film’s New York debut at Doc NYC.

Known for his geometric shapes and avant-garde styles, Cardin has amassed many celebrity fans over the years, many of whom appear in the film wearing their favorite of his designs. They include Naomi Campbell, Sharon Stone, Jenny Shimizu, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alice Cooper, and even Dionne Warwick, among others.

André Leon Talley Shares His Picks for the Four Most Iconic Fashion Moments in Film

André Leon Talley Shares His Picks for the Four Most Iconic Fashion Moments in Film
André Leon Talley’s contributions to fashion are well known inside the hallowed halls of Vogue, but his exuberant personality and colorful style have made him a cultural figure in his own right. Cinephiles first became aware of the former Vogue editor-at-large when he stole scenes in 2009’s “The September Issue.” An omnipresent figure in shades at Anna Wintour’s side, Talley’s tossed off witticisms lightened the mood as he lamented a “famine of beauty.” Last year, Talley got his own dedicated silver-screen treatment in Kate Novack’s excellent documentary, “The Gospel According to André.”

Distributed by Magnolia Pictures to largely positive reviews, the “Gospel” fills in the gaps of how this fashion icon came to be; from his humble beginnings in the Jim Crow era South, to his Brown undergraduate thesis on Charles Baudelaire, to his early runway reporting in 1970s Paris and his tenure at Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine.

Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Buzziest Titles From Sarah Jessica Parker to Ansel Elgort

Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Buzziest Titles From Sarah Jessica Parker to Ansel Elgort
Tribeca Film Festival may not rival the bidding wars of Sundance or studio tentpoles at SXSW. But it has cornered the market on cast reunions and Q&A sessions. This year is no exception, as the festival has lined up the makers of “Schindler’s List” (including Steven Spielberg), “Scarface” (Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer) and conversations from Bradley Cooper and John Legend. And then there are the movies playing throughout Manhattan, from April 18 through 29. Here are nine titles that could break out on the indie scene.

The film covers Mapplethorpe’s rise from the outer edges of New York’s arts scene to the center of high culture, ending with his tragic death

Doc Corner: Andre Leon Talley and Jayne Mansfield Lead the Melbourne Queer Film Festival

By Glenn Dunks

Down here in Melbourne where I live, the Melbourne Queer Film Festival is gearing up for its 28th year. It's got the best line-up I have ever seen for the festival, and in particular the documentary section is full of must see titles. I know The Film Experience readers like to hear about Lgbtqi cinema so I thought I'd choose three that focus on the movies and pop culture worlds to look at that will hopefully make their way to cinemas and VOD soon: The Gospel According to Andre, Mansfield 66/67 and Queerama.

The Gospel According To Andre

Shame on me, I suppose, for putting on The Gospel According to André and expecting a breezy 90 minutes of glam connoisseur André Leon Talley dishing cutting fashion commentary in caftans and calling everybody “darling” while rattling off designer names like he’s Edina in that Pet Shop Boys song about Absolutely Fabulous.

So Cosmo: Devil Wears Prada for the Kardashian generation

A new reality series goes behind the scenes at Cosmopolitan and finds rival Carrie Bradshaws, a formidable editor-in-chief and a dash of tacky glitz. Sound familiar?

Opening shot of high heels clicking across a Manhattan street. Camera pans back to a slender woman of a certain age with an expensive, slightly avant-garde hairstyle tapping out emails on her phone as she enters an imposing glass-fronted office. Cut to same woman striding out of lift 60 floors up, powering through an open-plan office, firing off orders about which Manolos to put Jen in for the cover try.

The glossy magazine behind-the-scenes doc is a fully fledged screen genre all of its own. What started with The Devil Wears Prada spawned The September Issue and Absolutely Fashion: Inside Vogue. Only the White House and the Tudor court have proved greater catnip for the modern storyteller than the glass-walled office of an editrix.

'Fantastic Beasts' Tops Weekend With $75M While Fellow New Releases Struggle

'Fantastic Beasts' Tops Weekend With $75M While Fellow New Releases Struggle
The weekend didn't quite turn out as Mojo had forecast as the top twelve grossed a combined $149.4 million compared to Mojo's forecast, which foresaw the top twelve grossing over $180 million. Part of the blame lay on an over-estimation of the weekend's top new release, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which did deliver a solid #1 opening, but couldn't match Mojo's lofty expectations. To that point, the vast majority of films fell below expectations including the weekend's two other new wide releases, The Edge of Seventeen and Bleed for This, neither of which managed to top $5 million as well as Sony's expansion of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, which can't be looked at as anything more than a flop at this point. Yet, there were some other notable performances to focus on, particularly in limited release where Amazon and Roadside's Manchester by the Sea delivered strong opening results and Moonlight

  • TooFab
Bow down! Beyonce looks beyond beautiful on the cover of the September issue of Vogue, marking her third time gracing the pages of the famed fashion magazine.

New Projects: Clint Eastwood to direct biopic of Captain “Sully” Sullenberger

Following the success of American Sniper, Clint Eastwood has found his next project, which will once again be a biopic. Eastwood has signed on to direct a movie focusing on airline pilot Captain Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger. Captain Sullenberger rose to prominence in 2009, when he managed to land a plane on the Hudson River following an engine accident, with no casualties as a result of his actions. The screenplay for the film will come from Perfect Stranger scribe Todd Komarnicki, who will adapt the book Highest Duty: My Search For What Really Matters, which was co-authored by Sullenberger himself.

In their announcement of the film, Warner Bros. had this to add.

it will go beyond Sullenberger’s almost impossible and much-heralded achievement of safely landing a jumbo jet on the water, which was captured on video and viewed around the world. But behind the scenes, a drama was unfolding that could
