Director Robert "The Player" Altman comes up with another star-studded ensemble to take a cheeky swipe at the fashion industry. Julia Roberts, Sophia Loren, Lauren Bacall, Tim Robbins, Rupert Everett, Forest Whitaker and Richard E Grant are among the hordes of reporters, designers, photographers and other hangers-on who descend on Paris for Fashion Week. But as sparks fly and farce ensues, it's Kim Basinger who catches the eye as a TV presenter with cloth between her ears. A colourful collection with all the accessories.
Anyone who has an interest in the exotic world of fashion super-models will lap up this quirky satire. Set during the Paris fashion shows, it's directed by Robert Altman, who did a similar hatchet job on Hollywood in The Player.
Among his starry cast - which includes Sophia Loren, Julia Roberts, Cher (as herself), Tim Robbins, Rupert Everett, Marcello Mastroianni and Lauren Bacall - Kim Basinger shines brightest as an airhead TV reporter.
