Back to Fashion Fashion Fashion...

Here is a bunch of new(ish) fashion films. This is a warm-up to what's to come soon, now that fashion week(s) is just around the corner. More like fashion month... since it doesn't really matter where you are anymore, thanks to brands' new obsession with live-streaming. So runway shows for everyone. From anywhere. Yeih!

The first short film is Bleu de Chanel, directed by Martin Scorsese. This film features two of Scorsese's great loves: New York and the Rolling Stones. It premiered on August 25, on the BLEU DE CHANEL Facebook 'online event' that you could attend.

The second film is a Miu Miu A/W 2010-2011 Ad Campaign. Directed by Madonna. Yeap... Madonna. It has been around for a few weeks, although I discovered it recently. Apparently, Madonna showed up onto the set of Miu Miu campaign shooting to meet photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Pigott, to take them out for dinner. But she got distracted and ended up directing the video instead (Source Elle UK).

Model Ginta Lapina told LOVE magazine: "We were supposed to shoot a video, so Madonna said she wanted to direct it. They said she could do it but they weren't going to pay her and she started laughing. She put on her iPod and taught us moves and we shot the video for two hours".

The third film is Eniko's Diamond Dip. Distributed through NOWNESS on August 26; and created in collaboration with photographer-turned-filmmaker KT Auleta, and Lacôme Creative Director and Makeup Guru Aaron de Mey. Glitzy! You can also see the film and read the small article on NOWNESS here.

The last video is not a fashion film, but the trailer for Black Swan. Natalie Portman's upcoming film (out in December). Directed by Darren Aronofsky. It premiered this past September 1st, opening The 67th Venice Film Festival. The films looks incredible, but I'm adding it here because of an article I read on Farfetch, where I learnt that the Rodarte sisters designed the cast's costumes! So I cannot wait to watch this movie! Follow this link to the Farfetch article on Black Swan.

First it was A Single Man, then I Am Love, and now Black Swan... wow it has been a great year for film!  :)

I hope you enjoy these short films as much as I did:
