Versace got it going on in the gold mesh

Prêt-A-Porter is a comedy movie directed by Robert Altman, and stars an ensemble cast including Sophia Loren, Julia Roberts, Kim Basinger, Rupert Everett, Richard E Grant and Cher, among others. It is a story chronicling the interconnected lives of its characters in the lead-up to Paris Fashion Week.

The Prêt-A-Porter (translated as “ready to wear”) album soundtrack was released on 6 December 1994 and contains one Prince released track, Get Wild, which was co-written by Prince (at the time under the name of Prince love symbol) and Sonny T but is credited as the New Power Generation. It was recorded at Paisley Park in May 1994 with the full line-up of the New Power Generation.

The soundtrack was released ahead of NPG’s Exodus album on which Prince released Get Wild as the lead single, however the versions differ slightly – that on Prêt-A-Porter being 1:25 longer. The soundtrack peaked in the US at number 29 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart.

Prince did attend the actual Paris Fashion Week in July 1995, as a guest of Donna Versace. Each attendee to Versace’s collection unveiling received the promotional cassette The Versace Experience, which contains a remix of Get Wild.
