BERGDORF GOODMAN: IF THOSE DRESSING ROOMS COULD TALK!
We find the combination of celebrity gossip and fashion impossible to resist so we are eagerly anticipating the release of the film “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s.” This documentary traces the almost ninety year history of the most luxurious department store in perhaps the world. Many designers are interviewed and there are plenty of celebrity anecdotes. Had they interviewed us, we would have told the story about Sylvester Stallone shopping there. After gaining weight for a movie, he struggled in the dressing room there to find flattering clothes. After he left, a clerk found a waist cincher/ girdle that he had left behind! A discreet call was made, and Sly sent his wife in to pick up the undergarment. (Above, Barbra Streisand filmed a segment for her 1965 TV special there, wearing fur knickers!) It opens May 3.
