The myth of the star and death: Glamourama portrays the border between the celebrity cult and suicide. Death as a glorified media event and the cult of immortality are reduced back to the loneliness and banality of the act and alienated by the limelight. The death of stars becomes interchangeable, artificial, "prêt-à-porter".
