You’re invited to a party to celebrate designer/award-winning Patricia Field and ponder the question of what to wear, a documentary about her life and career in Tribeca directed by Michael Seldich. Her decades-long career has been colorful since the Tribeca premiere of “Dress Up: The Movie About Patricia Field.”Th High street retail store, paradise pattern combo (worked with florals) and accessories from cultural icons “Sex and the City” and “The Devil Wears Prada”, the better question is, is my outfit happy enough?
We’ve all embraced Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw in a tutu, ditching New York streetwear with a dripping poodle no less. That image has graced the side of buses for years, with Anne Hathaway’s dress shirt and mini skirt, aided by Stanley Tucci, making it look like a white-haired Miranda Priestly – that is, Meryl Streep – supermodel. Carmen Del Orifice, not Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Even the detail-oriented Darren Starr is drawn to Field’s Eye, her unique weaves and stylings – for diva and girl, trans or not.
Patricia Field, who had changed her red hair and was dressed in purple, hurried through the crowd at Gigino Trattoria’s wall, a man wearing a full polka dot stitched to the lapel. As he swung at others, snarlingly inquiring, old friends like Bruce Weber looked perfect in his signature headband, perhaps revealing the secret to the cheery outfits.
PS I wore the new neutral: Barbie pink.
