Recently, the Hollywood Theatre tapped Eden Dawn—fashion editor for the Portland Monthly and good friend of mine—and I to curate a "Fashion in Film" series... so, we are! The first one is happening on Saturday, March 22, complete with an after-party across the street at Blackwell's ("roughing it"). For our first film selection, it made sense to go back to our roots as wee little 1980s girls—arguably the most fun-loving fashion era in which to be a kid—and pull out one of the first films we can remember exciting our fashion imaginations: 1989's Troop Beverly Hills! If you have not revisited this gem in a while (which of course also features appearances by Jenny Lewis, Cheech Marin, Robin Leach, and Tori Spelling), take a moment to recall how totally amazing star Shelley Long's outfits are. Not to mention the important lessons this film has to teach you about tailoring, bargaining ("It's missing a bead, you know"), and gem-identification, as well as friendship! And love! And glamping.
Tickets are available now for the one-night-only screening—peplums and polka dots encouraged.
