SHE SAID, SHE SAID

TEXT NATASHA STAGG



In the world of fashion film, one is often left without the valuable analytical component of more unbiased artworks. In most advertising, depth isn't necessarily a selling point, and so the narratives we view rely instead on tropes, sensationalism, or humor. But fashion itself is a complexly structured force in our lives. Although we'd like to view a garment objectively, the context in which it is held always deems this impossible. 

In She Said, She Said, a darkly comedic short film directed by Stuart Blumberg and starring the fantastic Marisa Tomei, Elodie Bouchez, Aubrey Plaza and David Wain, clothing—the LA fashion brand Co—is a character. The actors, as they say, wear the clothes, and don't let the clothes wear them. Items (a car, an evening gown, and a terrier) are part of that exemplary conversation best known for exploiting one's materialistic desires: a divorce.

The styling represents a mood the way it would in real life, in that each outfit must be chosen carefully in order to gain everything. Because when we dress, we're not getting ready for a run through a mystical garden or a rolling, sun-drenched field. Let's get real. We're getting ready for revenge.
