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. The soundtrack was released ahead of the 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 Top 200 Chart.

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