Poster for Robert Altman's comic take on the fashion industry dating from 1994. The film was compared with Altman's earlier classic "Nashville" (1975) which cast a similarly humorous, if caustic eye upon politicians & the country music industry. In "Pret-a-Porter", Altman weaves a series of stories in & around a forthcoming fashion show, the denouement of which is a show where the models are naked, the fashion designer having been deserted by her creative muse.


Altman was the "nearly man" of Hollywood, having made major feature films for half a century (1957-2006). During this time, he received 7 Oscar nominations: for "M.A.S.H." (1971), two for "Nashville" (1976), "The Player" (1993), "Short Cuts" (1994) & two for "Gosford Park" (2002). The Academy presented an Honorary Oscar to Altman shortly before he died in 2006.


The poster here is one of the few "modern" posters in the collection being a simple, though eye-catching photographic design.
