Coming to America
In Coming to America, Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) decides to venture from his Zamunda palace to New York City’s Queens, with the hope of finding his own queen to marry. This 1988 classic comedy is not only blessed by Murphy’s comedic genius, but also Deborah Landis’s costume mastery. Blaire and Marie fawn over the extravagant fur shawls, gold lace gowns, and oversized scrunchies before the episode goes off the rails and they start talking about aliens, Glenn Danzig, and Blaire’s (new) online shopping habit. For visuals of the costumes, follow us on Instagram at @fishnetflixpod DM or email your movie requests at firstname.lastname@example.org

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer
We're going straight to the sequel for I Know What You Did Last Summer specifically for the presence of Ms. Brandy Norwood, and we're so glad we did! Costume designer Daniel J. Lester (Once Upon a Time, Spawn) put Brandy, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Co. in looks that are perfect for the film's tropical island setting. There may not be a ton of outfits in this late '90s slasher, but the ones we have are daaamn good. Even Marie, a typical beige-hater, loves J-Love's uber neutral 'fits. What are you waiting for??? For visuals of the costumes, follow us on Instagram at @fishnetflixpod DM or email your movie requests at firstname.lastname@example.org

This week we have, maybe one of the most on brand movies ever, In Fabric. A surreal horror film, with costume design by Jo Thompson, about an "artery-red gown" that transforms the lives of the wearer. We loved it but nothing prepared us for the gowns home, the sales people, the twists, or that mannequin scene. You can hear the shock in our voices BUT everyone should absolutely see In Fabric! Trailer: https://youtu.be/biHUTtV4K40 From Jo Thompson: https://bit.ly/2ItavIQ

Sex and the City: The Movie
Fashion and Beauty Editor (and BOSS) Stephanie Montes joins us this week with her pick, Sex And The City: The Movie. We all agree Patricia Field is the go to costume designer when it comes to high fashion, taking risks, and NYC. She took all 4 women and for the entire 6 seasons (and 2 movies) told their stories via fashion. SATC will always be remembered as one of the most fashionable show on TV. Follow Steph: https://www.instagram.com/stephanie_montes and her company: https://www.instagram.com/the_brand_nue/ A great article on Patricia Field: https://www.manrepeller.com/2018/05/patricia-field.html Roger the belt: https://bit.ly/2G6dyFP
