Many of the models featured in the film were based in New York and flown out to Hollywood for filming. They were among the first to be introduced to Max Factor's new Pan-Cake makeup brand, which they then took back to New York, helping to quickly popularize the new item. See more »

"Vogues of 1938" was obviously an expensive and prestigious film and it must have cost the studio a fortune. After all, very, very films were filmed in color back in 1937. Plus, the movie is filled with pretty models, designer gowns and opulence. And, incidentally, it's STILL a terrible film. Why? Because the story is very thin and one fashion show after another gets incredibly boring. So, no matter how good the acting is of Warner Baxter and Joan Bennett, they aren't given much with which to work. And the story just never in the least gets interesting...never.
So is there anything good about the film? Not a lot. I did enjoy the production number early in the film with the black band--in particular the pianist who was playing a nifty jazz piece. Other than that, a complete waste of time and a film that is all style and absolutely no substance.
