SF360: Fabulous Fashion in Film

By Indiewire | Indiewire July 27, 2007 at 6:44AM

Before television there had never been a visual medium quite so "mass" as the movies--offering identical imagery to people throughout a country, even the world. Elegant screen sartorial highs and garishly campy lows alike will be well-represented in Fabulous Fashion in Film, an eight-day Castro Theatre series programmed and presented by local film/celebrity-event maestro Marc Huestis. As it goes on, the "Fabulous Fashion" series strays farther from classic Hollywood glamour. Monday features major fashion "don'ts" Little Edie and Big Edith Beale in '70s train-wreck cult documentary favorite "Grey Gardens," followed by Jennie Livingston's brilliant 1990 "Paris is Burning," about NYC's pre-Madonna voguing scene. Dennis Harvey reports.
