In 1987, Kim Cattrall played a store dummy that came to life in the movie The Mannequin. Seems impossible?
Not only was it possible, it showed how stupid it was that no one have thought of this plot, cast and costumes before – in such a way that the absurdity of imagining a silhouette of a shop window transformed into a flesh-and-blood woman became part of the imagination of a (broad) audience. The film raised more than 42 million dollars in box office in the United States, and its aesthetic continues to be relevant to this day. Hence the question: what if the mannequins came to life now, what would it look like? It would look more or less like the next pages. Oh well, maybe this “Kim” is more futuristic than the original Cattrall. Photography by Jamie Nelson. Styling by Karen Levitt. Hair by Elsa. Makeup by Lottie.
