Bringing up Baby with Mademoiselle Robot at MCM film club


Whilst book clubs and salons are all the rage at the moment, prepare for the return of film clubs- with Secret Cinema and Birds Eye View Festival leading the way, people are rediscovering some of the brilliant films of bygone eras. Last night I attended the launch night of a very exclusive new fashion and film club, hosted by blogger and stylist Mademoiselle Robot at the luxury MCM store on Sloane street.The first film shown was one of Melle Robot's favourites; Bringing up Baby starring Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and a leopard. The fashion theme we were looking at in the movie was 'breaking style boundaries' as Katharine was renowned for wearing only men's clothes, adapting trousers and shirts to her wardrobe and ultimately reinventing what women wore the world over, to this day.To make it even more controversial, Cary Grant even cross-dresses in one scene, wearing a marabou-trimmed negligee.


We're offering you the chance to decide what film is played at the next club meeting- post your suggestions here and we'll choose three of our favourite recommendations to nominate for the next screening, and invite those three people along to the event.I'm up for anything with Elizabeth Taylor...
