Probably best known as Andy Warhol's superstar, Edie Sedgwick is one of the most vibrant people I have ever heard of. I just watched the film Factory Girl, which details Sedgwick's (played by Sienna Miller) rise to fame with Warhol's factory. In the film, she is irresistably charming and quite the party girl. No wonder she was Andy Warhol's muse!
Although the plot of Burlesque, starring Christina Aguilera and Cher, is a bit predictable:the ambitious girl from a small town achieves her dreams in the big city, I can't help but fall in love with the main character Ali (Aguilera). Her feisty personality and sweet sexiness draw you in. Besides Ali, the burlesque costumes and stage make-up that the dancers wear is to die for! Fishnets, sequins, feathers, and pleather, show-stopping outfit after outfit continue to appear on screen. Each costume is so salacious and over the top...perhaps the inspiration for my Spring 2011 collection. Overall, Burlesque is a fun film if you love feisty females and outrageous ensembles.
