Good film for fashion class

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I teach fashion to high school students grades 10-12. This was a great video to use. It portrayed how much of an impact films/movies, actors and actresses have on what we wear, the current styles, trends, designs, etc. The students really enjoyed it, especially since they use popular, well known actors and actresses that we can all relate to."
Vapid Talking Heads

"This movie would be great if it were edited down to 15 minutes. Most of it is talking heads going on and on about this designer or that trend. The blurb indicated that it would deal with Edith Head, costumes in film,etc. That takes up about ten minutes, and it merely shows a photo of Ms. Head. It doesn't deal with the iconic elements of her designs. The rest looks like those MTV fillers where actors and unrecognizable "fasion experts" give their preferences and opinions. I showed it to my film class and was embarrassed by the lack of information and the vapid way in which it was delivered. I wanted to fast forward through the first 30 minutes, but I kept hoping it would get better. There have to be better movies about costumes and fashion in film. I'm still searching."
