We had planned to go to the Beatles exhibition today, but decided to wait as we thought that it might be a crowded for opening day, so instead we stayed home had pancakes and watched movies all day
One movie I like to watch largely for the visuals is Who are you, Polly Magoo?
This movie from 1966 takes a satirical look at the fashion industry and its opulence
The main protagonist is Polly Magoo. Model and It Girl from New York who everyone is enamored with.
A TV show interviews her and the host falls in love, while a Prince sees her photo in a magazine and falls for her also, ordering for his best secret agents to go find her.
The opening scene is a fashion show attended by Miss Maxwell, fashion editor and her identically dressed assistants, where we see Polly dressed in sheet metal as the star
Men stop her in the street, offering her dinner, shaving cream and cutting off bits of her wig...
In her apartment, she is interviewed for a TV show "Who are you..."
They show Polly, a young Beatles fan turned elegant fashion model
The scene most copied by fashion stylists, is this one, where the models sit applying their make up, discussing men and the Prince who is looking for a particular model to take away

The Prince waits...
But will Polly be his Princess?
The TV interviewer Gregoire, analyses Polly to the point of tears
And she kicks a ball into her own head
Meanwhile, Miss Maxwell continues to have Polly model, but she is slowly changing her mind about her pemanance
In a series of imaginations, Polly meets her Prince and vice versa
But Polly, now not sure if she can still model, considers if she should return with the Prince or fall in love with Gregoire
Miss Maxwell asks Polly to now be a rocket
