The Week in Fashion: May 16 to May 20
Wednesday, May 16
The only thing Cat likes as much as clothes porn is real estate porn, and right now there’s some serious flesh on display over at 2900 Inca Street. For the 32nd year, the Junior Symphony Guild has teamed up with some of the best interior designers in town to put together two dream houses, this time in the modern brownstones that make up the Inca 29 project. One was created for the “global couple” the other for the “modern family.”

11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today; meet the designers from 4 to 7 p.m.

No fashionista’s education is complete without screening all of Barbara Stanwyck’s films. This weekend the Denver Film Society is giving a 101 lesson to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the late Barbara Stanwyck’s birth. Start with tonight’s 7:30 p.m. viewing of 1933’s The Bitter Tea of General Yen; Friday night catch 1941’s Ball of Fire; and on Saturday 1944’s Double Indemnity unspools. Or do a mini-marathon on Sunday when they all screen back-to-back, starting at 11:30 a.m.

Bras for a Cause
