GREAT MOVIES make a lasting IMPRESSION. So does GREAT FASHION.
Lights, camera, fashion! Michael Kors landed in the cinematic city of London for an A-list panel discussion and a glamorous dinner to celebrate the opening night of Icons of Style—a curated film series hosted in partnership with Vanity Fair and Fashion & Cinema that explores the role of fashion in American film.*
Taking the stage at the Ham Yard Hotel, alongside Hollywood actresses Kate Hudson, Ali MacGraw and Rene Russo, Kors and the stars talked about three iconic films—Almost Famous (2000), Love Story (1970) and The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)—and the memorable fashion moments they inspired, during a spirited panel discussion led by Vanity Fair’s Elizabeth Saltzman.
Following the conversation, the audience enjoyed a screening of Love Story and Kors hosted the actresses and a panoply of guests at an intimate dinner at The Ivy—a beautifully revamped icon of London’s dining scene. Fabulous flowers set the mood, the magician Dynamo wowed with magic tricks and Samantha Bark wound her way around the tables serenading the crowd. Hudson, MacGraw and Russo mingled with Uma Thurman, Clémence Poésy, Mario Testino, Erin O’Connor, Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece, and others, raising toasts to style and cinema.
MOVIES have always been a great source of INSPIRATION for me, and the THREE WOMEN in the films we selected captured a FASHION MOMENT in such a MONUMENTAL WAY that they’ve become part of the CULTURAL ZEITGEIST.
