FASHION in FILM: What cinematic moment inspired you? Our contributors weigh in ... Tom Corbett For photographer Tom Corbett, who divides his time between Hell’s Kitchen in New York City and upstate New York, it’s all about the golden age of cinema. “The most enduring fashion moment in any film has to be Anita Ekberg dancing in the Trevi Fountain,” Corbett says, adding, “I am also tremendously inspired by the films of Ingmar Bergman.” Emily Barnes “Always Federico Fellini,” says New York City fashion stylist and consultant Emily Barnes, whose work can be found in such publications as U. S. and Italian Vogue. “There is nothing more beautiful than his women. Back then, actors did their own hair and makeup — Sophia Loren is my favorite of Fellini’s actors.” Courtney Iseman New York City-based writer Courtney Iseman names three significant fashion moments. “I can’t narrow it down any further. I still dream about the over-the-top Versailles glamour of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. She nailed all the ornate opulence of that period. Alabama’s (Patricia Arquette in True Romance) leopard fur coat and retro mix of animal prints and bold colors is all the inspiration you need to brighten your look. And then there’s the coat Kate Hudson wore in Almost Famous. I promptly bought one just like it right after seeing the movie and wore it until it disintegrated.” You can also see Iseman’s work in Elle, Cosmopolitan, domino, Food52, BUST, Observer, New York magazine, and i-D. Jenny Risher Birmingham, Mich.-based photographer and the author of D-Cyphered and Heart Soul Detroit, Jenny Risher cites an ’80s classic: “The scene from Pretty in Pink when Molly Ringwald makes her pink prom dress.” Aubrey Almanza Based in Palm Springs, Calif., fashion writer and content analyst Aubrey Almanza counts “the 2014 Yves Saint Laurent film” starring Pierre Niney as Yves Saint Laurent as one of her all-time favorites. “I love to see what makes the most legendary designers tick behind closed doors.” Almanza’s work has been featured in Allure, Town & Country, Harper’s Bazaar, SHAPE, and Grazia UK. Megan Swoyer “I remember catching glimpses of movies my older brothers and sisters were watching in which I’d see a beautiful woman in a short, bold, and colorful shift dress. To this day, I LOVE the shift,” says Megan Swoyer, a writer, editor, and watercolorist based in Troy. “I also absolutely adore the crisp blouse (in plain white or in a pattern) and would see them in classic old movies that my mother, Genevieve, and I would indulge in now and then. I’d marvel at the way her own white button-downs were a lot like Lauren Bacall, in Key Largo. They seemed so sensible, but somehow chic!”
