Daily Inspiration: Isaac Mizrahi’s Unzipped Catwalk


Today we mentioned Parker Posey's Party Girl while trying to blush and sashay through our screens toward you while talking about Hercules and Love Affair's new video for "My House." That raw disco reminded us of Unzipped, of the emotionally bare, inspiring and freedom loving documentary made about Isaac Mizrahi in 1995, when all he wanted to do was "fur pants" even though he knew he might be "stoned off of Seventh Avenue, like some wanton heretic or something." No fur pants ended up on the movie-ending catwalk, just (teeny!) KATE MOSS, LINDA EVANGELISTA, CHRISTY TURLINGTON, SHALOM HARLOW AND OF COURSE NAOMI CAMPELL in hot brights, some fuzzy hats. The walk's backtrack is Sandra Berhard's potent cover of Sylvester's "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)". Her voice kind of sounds like Joni Mitchell? Until the beat kicks in, we mean! Then there's a house remix of the Mary Tyler Moore theme and after it, another of Boy George's "Miss Me Blind." Hear that after the jump!
