Huge cinematic news: Kenzo’s upcoming fashion film will star literally the most iconic assemblage of actors we can imagine off the top of our heads right now. Oh, and the film is written and directed by the fiery and fantastic Natasha Lyonne, so you know it’s going to be amazing and freaky. They announced the upcoming project through this Instagram post, which leads us to believe there will be a circus-y vaudeville vibe to the whole experience:
Humberto Leon & Carol Lim, creative directors of KENZO, present “Cabiria, Charity, Chastity”, a new film written and directed by the accomplished actress @nlyonne featuring KENZO’s Fall-Winter 2017 collections. The film follows Chastity (#MayaRudolph) on a surreal journey through a parallel plane meeting Fred Armisen (@sordociego), Greta Lee (@thegreta), James Ransone, Matt Lucas (@realmattlucas), Macaulay Culkin (@macaulay_culkin_), Waris Ahluwalia (@houseofwaris), Leslie Odom Jr (@leslieodomjr) on her way. Stay tuned for the film to be released on KENZO.com in September 2017. Photos by @caspersejersenstudio with costume design by @ariannephillips.
For starters, there’s Macauley Culkin, who we’ve been begging to enter the fashion sphere ever since he served us pom pom hat realness in Home Alone. Maybe he’ll play a washed up clown smoking cigarillos in a corner backstage.
Then, naturally, there’s Maya Rudolph, the Queen of All Things, who looks fabulous, by the way, in a furry jacket and neck bow. We’re imagining her to be the uproarious hostess of the show, who maybe is also a tap-dancing sensation?
Fred Armisen is here, too, and likely playing a mime of some kind, based on his makeup. Rounding out the cast are British comic Matt Lucas, Waris Ahluwalia, Greta Lee, James Ransone, and Leslie Odom Jr. And if Kenzo’s past films are any indication, this is going to be a new masterpiece.
I mean, anyone else still watch this every day before work?
