It would be an understatement to say that I’m an avid follower of Whit Stillman’s work. I saw “Metropolitan” in the theater when it was released in 1990, and I’m still somewhat obsessed with it. (I even used to have a Tumblr-homage to this film.) I’m also a fan of “Barcelona” and “The Last Days of Disco.”
So, I was happy to note, while leafing through an issue of New York magazine in a doctor’s waiting-room, that Stillman will be collaborating with “Disco” star Chloe Sevigny on a new series called “The Cosmopolitans.” Well, according to the article, it’s “an Amazon Studios pilot debuting August 28 that might become a series.” I’m sure I’ll be tuning in and hoping for more.
You can read the New York interview with Stillman and Sevigny here.
I also just found this article, with a preview video clip, from Vanity Fair.

Jessica, I found a similar tube top that I wore ALL THE TIME In the late 90s. I wonder if I still have it. My favorite pairing was with long silvery bell bottom pants.
Oh, the 90s!! I wore lots of long floral jumpers down to my ankles. It was a weird time…
Also we have amazon prime!
We might need to make a date for early September, then! ;)
