What I'd love to see come back
I've been watching a lot of TCM over the past couple weeks. One thing I miss that they don't do in modern movies is the fashion montage. There are movies where someone attends a fashion show, like Raising Helen, but it's not the same. In older movies like That Touch of Mink, there was usually a scene where the leading lady went shopping. All the latest fashions were paraded slowly in front of her. The viewer usually got a good look at five or ten outfits. The models all had such an elegant carriage about them. The few times I see a fashion show in a movie today, there is pulsing rock music and the models all have a dead-eyed gaze. Where's all the glamour?
