Frederick Wiseman’s Model is the Original September Issue

March 05, 2010


Back in the '80s, famed documentarian Frederick Wiseman made a movie about the modeling industry, and while he did not pass the pearly gates of Vogue to make Model, his exposé on fashion is said to be just as awesome and revealing. The film's mise-en-scène moves around the frothy comings and goings of an Oscar de la Renta fashion show and a panty hose commercial, with Wiseman trailing models from the now defunct Zoli agency. Warhol makes a cameo, and there are plenty of recognizable '80s glamazons around too (Jerry Hall), as well as tons of great Alexis Colby-worthy fashion moments. The documentary showed at MoMa last night, and will be screening at the museum again on March 22, at 4pm.
