The Tale of a Fairy.. a short film by Karl Lagerfeld ... Part 1


There is A LOT to like in this film. The first time I saw it I liked it, but each time I watch it it grows on me more and more. Its really VERY funny, you just have to know it once before to get into the subtleties. Im not into labels so much, or "fancy", BUT Kristen McMenamy kills me, and Kristen McMenamy ACTING makes my head explode... HOW GOOD IS SHE?!.. She has FOUR DIFFERENT ACCENTS IN JUST THE FIRST FOUR LINES?!?!? Shes so good, Id watch her in anything. The British (and other mystery accent) ladies are great too ( I dont know actresses so dont yell at me) but c'mon Kristen McMenamy STEALS IT.... "VAUDEVILLE TACK!... GO PITCH YOUR TENT!".... I die.... and I know every queen hates him and is jealous but I like Baptiste the sugar baby of Karls .. "I Hup so!" .... Aside from all of that, its beautifully art directed and the fairy looks like a young Amanda Lear and I always appreciate an androgynous magical creature....... "So much for your stylish party!"

I love how the giant bitch entrance gesture of smashing the champagne flute on the marble is totally trumped by the endless parade of luggage to the top of the stairs. You can almost hear her gasping for attention.

"The emotion of life, that's what counts, not living in the pages of Elle Decorazione, for God's sake." Great line in the context of what this film is about.

The English woman Kristen was arguing with in the first scene is Lady Amanda Harlech. She's John Galliano former muse but now she works with Karl. and the fairy is model Freja Beha Erichsen :)

I absolutely love the scene of Kristen getting her feet massaged - gorgeous. Freja Beha is sexy as hell as well...

I love it when people are forced to rough it like that!

Kristen made this movie for me. She was also the only good thing about that cruise 2012 fashion show as well.
