Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Decided to cover an underground gem from the mid-90s that most people will be surprised to learn has a lot of fur fashion. Also decided to see how many readers could pick up on sarcasm. Yes, it’s Casino, the film that associated Sharon Stone with “chinchilla” in certain circles. It’s also the ‘90s, so it… Read More Furs on Film – Casino (1995)

Furs on Film – Star! (1968)

Julie Andrews in a musical? Box office gold, Jerry! Except when it’s not. Yes, we continue the fine tradition of flops with great fur fashion. The 1968 musical Star! landed three years after The Sound of Music with high studio expectations. Things did not go quite as well as hoped; as you may have noticed,… Read More Furs on Film – Star! (1968)

Furs on Film – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

I have neglected the classics over the past year but will fold some good Old Hollywood films back into the program. What better way to start than with a new entry in the 20% club? Okay, thanks to a lot of ermine, it gets across the finish line, but it’s legit. It is our latest… Read More Furs on Film – Every Day’s a Holiday (1937)

Furs on Film – Chicago (2002)

It’s a Saturday and a movie from 2002, so it’s probably a period piece. This one is a musical, which is generally regarded as a lot better than the last musical I covered. Chicago is set in the 1920s, and I suspect there’s a little “embellishment” in the costume department, but that works out well… Read More Furs on Film – Chicago (2002)

Furs on TV – Snow Queen (2002)

It’s almost Christmas, or it will be the week after this goes live. I may take that off, so here’s the best I can do for a Christmas update. The funny thing is Christmas movies may seem like something that would make fur more likely because they are nominally associated with cold weather. But, let… Read More Furs on TV – Snow Queen (2002)

Furs on Film – The First Wives Club (1996)

At this rate, I’ll be done with the ‘90s pretty soon. The First Wives Club probably lands in that gray area where the costume designers (correctly) figured the “elite” were still wearing furs even though the post-80s backlash was in full swing. So, we get some real fur by way of authenticity, which is still… Read More Furs on Film – The First Wives Club (1996)

Furs on Film – Anna Karenina (2012)

Do you know what we need more of in 2022? Tragedy. Wait, no, I mean Keira Knightley in a bunch of fur. So let’s break out the most recent adaption of the Tolstoy classic, Anna Karenina, and check out Keira and her Oscar-winning Imperial Russian costume design.  Anna Karenina – The Film Holy crap, look… Read More Furs on Film – Anna Karenina (2012)

Furs on Film – American Hustle (2013)

Hey, two ‘80s updates in a row. Sorta, and it’s the one thing that keeps me going cinematically, ‘80s period pieces with real fur. This one hits even harder because I vaguely recall seeing the evening news reporting on the events this movie dramatized when I was but a wee webmaster. Not only that, it… Read More Furs on Film – American Hustle (2013)

Furs on Film – The Last Metro (1980)

The ’80s were great for a lot of reasons. Okay, mostly the furs, but you could also make movies where Nazis were the bad guys without some whiny bitches on Twitter complaining about it. So let’s take a ride on The Last Metro and hope no one shows up in the comments to claim that… Read More Furs on Film – The Last Metro (1980)
