Andrea Karg on … her Favourite Movies
Film premieres, award ceremonies and film festivals are scenes to be seen for stars and fashionistas alike. The most important question on the red carpet still is, “Who are you wearing?” Well, in some cases the ‘why’ would be interesting to know as well … And what are Allude creative director Andrea Karg’s favourites on the big or small screen?
“Well, James Bond always guarantees a good time, doesn’t he?! No matter who plays the role of the legendary spy and womanizer. But a movie that deeply impressed me and has been a favourite of mine since its premiere is Crash by director Paul Haggis. On the surface it’s a story about a car accident but there’s so much more seething underneath. Prejudice, racism, all the chronic problems a great city like Los Angeles has to face. As in fashion I like complexity in movies. My second all-time favourite, the amazing Magnolia, is another such multi-layered film with numerous intertwined characters. The best quote comes right at the beginning: ‘And it is in the humble opinion of this narrator that strange things happen all the time.’ Just perfect!”
