Miuccia Prada hearts Hollywood. Following the Italian fashion designer’s casting of Boardwalk Empire star Michael Pitt as the face of Prada menswear, she’s enlisted four young female directors from around the world to create four short films for Miu Miu that star a slew of famous faces.
As part of Miu Miu’s "Women’s Tales" series premiering at the Venice Film Festival this week, the Prada sub label has released the trailer for "It’s Getting Late," lensed by Iranian director Massy Tadjedin. The film features actress/comedienne Aubrey Plaza (of Parks and Recreation), British actress Gemma Arterton, Japanese actress Rinko Kinkuchi, and, my personal favorite, Patricia Clarkson aka every romantic comedy’s secret weapon.
All the gals are decked out in Miu Miu’s ready-to-wear collections as they get ready to attend a performance by musicians Zola Jesus and Au Revoir Simone. Peep the trailer below and check out the other shorts directed by Zoe Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel and Giada Colagrande here.
