1.) Sundance Channel Full Frontal Fashion + Mademoiselle Agnes
If you've never heard of Mademoiselle Agnes, you’re really missing out. Mademoiselle Agnes is a bonafide fashion star in France, but not in the way Rachel Zoe or Mary Kate Olsen is here in the U.S. Instead, Mademoiselle Agnes combines two seemingly paradoxical positions—investigative journalist and TV personality—to make a winning combination of smart, quirky fashion reporting.
Summary: In this six-part special from the Sundance Channel, Mademoiselle Agnes sets out to find the fresh new crop of designers in the fashion capital of the world, Paris. Will she succeed, or will the Minister of Culture and his army of established fashion houses (Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior) triumph once again?
Highlights: Appearances by Alexander Wang, Alber Elbaz (Lanvin), Phoebe Philo (Celine), Marc Jacobs, and more; Anna Wintour (Vogue US editor) “dissing” Carine Roitfeld (Vogue Paris editor); and of course beautiful, beautiful clothes.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of the Recommended Viewing series, which is perfect for chasing away the midterm blues.
