Xavier Dolan Learned to Break Beauty Clichés From Prada

Xavier Dolan was only 20 years old when J’ai Tué Ma Mère, or I Killed My Mother, a film he wrote, directed, starred in, and produced premiered at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. At 27 he would take home the festival’s 2014 Jury Prize for his movie, Mommy. In the near-decade since, the French-Canadian wunderkind has firmly cemented his status as a leading LGBTQ+ auteur and fashion star—both in front of and behind the camera. The past year has seen the Quebecois directing some of the world’s biggest stars. See: Adele in her “Easy on Me” video, Julia Roberts in a Chopard campaign, and Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer in a delightfully cinematic short film for Prada. The video for the house’s Galleria bag is an ode to joy across generations with Schafer jumping between decades in style. Here, Dolan discusses the inspiration for the shoot and the important color lesson he learned from Miuccia Prada.

Look no further than Xavier Dolan, who has been recognized by both the Academy Awards and the Cannes Film Festival for movies like “It’s Only the End of the World” and “Mommy.” Despite this success, Dolan has never fully left the music video industry behind – and it is was with much celebration in both the film and music worlds that he recently reunited with singer-songwriter Adele on the “Easy On Me” music video.
