A few years ago, I saw a movie called THE September ISSUE. It was an
interesting profile of a woman (Anna Wintour) in a world (fashion) that
I generally have no interest in. It succeeded because it gave you
insight into the person, made you empathise with (or at least
understand) her, and taught you things that you are generally glad you
now know. Just like a good documentary should.
Unfortunately, MADEMOISELLE C is no September. It is more of a guilty pleasure for people who like the fashion scene. I got no real insight into the main character (just a sense of hero worship), and got either bored or amused by the overindulgence in the on-site shoot scenes.
As alluded to before, a good documentary should either say something or take you into a world you are not familiar with (preferably both). This movie is no more than a reality television episode.
This movie portrayed the worst perspectives of fashion: over
indulgence, disconnection from real world problems, hedonism, lack of
I work in fashion and becoming increasingly worried by where all of this is going: people venerate models and editors on social media, we tend to think of fashion as an aspirational tool....
Going back to the movie, like someone mentioned this should be a PR/marketing piece, not an actual documentary since it provides no added value. Even the title is misleading (and arrogant) since it plays with the association of Mademoiselle C with Chanel when in fact it refers to someone important in fashion now, certainly, but not nearly such an important and historical figure like Mademoiselle Coco.
MADEMOISELLE C did not seem in anyway a good documentary, as previously
alluded in review.
This was in fact nothing more than a Hero Worship of sorts... This was a nothing but glam and glitz. one could have an hearty laugh by the over-indulgence on the shoots or be just as easily be annoyed by the same.
A good Documentary would essentially be able to immerse the viewer into the fashion world that one is not familiar, it would also show you the hard core realities of the industry and not simply glam it up for those who take guilty pleasures in the fashion scene.
As the editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris from 2001 to January 31, 2011, Roitfeld, a former fashion model and writer, announced her resignation from the CondeNast Mag.
In 2012 she became founder and editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book. Carine Roitfeld rocked Fashion and journalism industries worldwide for decades. Fabien Constant's camera is here to capture it for the world to see!
I could not recommend a better documentary to understand the world of fashion.
