‘Albert’ after Armani

Cinema Society screens 'Nobbs' at MoMA

Giorgio Armani didn’t pick out Glenn Close’s male duds for her crossdressing turn in Roadside’s “Albert Nobbs,” but his label did co-sponsor the Cinema Society screening Tuesday at MoMA.

Helmer Rodrigo Garcia mused on why pics with male drag are so much more common. “There’s just more elements to play with,” he said. “When women dress as men, then you end up talking about identity and who a woman needs to be in order to survive.”

Despite the Armani sponsorship, Close said clothes don’t define the man or the woman. “It’s only when two human eyes look into two other eyes that we have that human connection and that’s basically what we live by,” she said.
