Ewan McGregor is starring in a five-part Netflix series about New York fashion designer Halston, and he was filming at The Mall in Central Park on Thursday.
Photos by Jackie L. show McGregor on the set, and the masked-up crew taking care of business. Vogue calls the show “a 70s fashion dream.”
“More than 20 years in the making, American Crime Story’s Daniel Minahan will direct the project, with The Affair’s Sharr White writing the script. Due out in 2021, the drama series will chart Halston’s journey from designing Jackie Kennedy’s now-iconic pillbox hat for JFK’s presidential inauguration in 1961 to becoming the darling of Manhattan’s glamorous fashion scene in the 1970s, his boutique on Madison Avenue a hub for the greatest stars of the decade, from Anjelica Huston to Margaux Hemingway and Bianca Jagger. The Studio 54 crowd – including Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick – are also expected to feature prominently in the series, as is the designer’s loss of control of his brand and his eventual death from AIDS-related complications in 1990.”
Stars, fashion and Central Park in the fall? This show’s going to be a hit.
