Prêt-à-Porter, released in the US as Ready to Wear (Prêt-à-Porter), is a 1994 American satirical comedy film co-written, directed, and produced by Robert Altman[2] and shot on location during the Paris Fashion Week with a host of international stars, models, and designers. The film may be best known for its many cameo appearances and its final scene which features two minutes of nude female models walking the catwalk.


As themselves


Miramax considered that American audiences would not understand a French title, so they released the film in the US as Ready to Wear (Prêt-à-Porter). In other countries, the original title was used. The US DVD and VHS title was Robert Altman's Ready to Wear.


Prêt-à-Porter received generally negative reviews from critics; it currently holds a 26% 'rotten' rating on Rotten Tomatoes.[3]

Box office

The film debuted weakly and was a bomb at the box office.[4] By the end of its run, the film grossed $11,300,653 in the domestic box office.[1]
