GREENWICH, Conn. — The filmmakers of “The Stepford Wives” paid Alease Fisher “ungodly buckets of money” to use the exterior of her house in Greenwich as the McMansion owned by the character played by Glenn Close in the film. So, on the day the movie opened earlier this month, Fisher, a fashion and jewelry designer who sells at such stores as Saks Fifth Avenue, celebrated her manse’s acting debut with a screening for 150 of her closest friends at the Crown Greenwich Plaza Cinemas — and asked them to dress up like true Stepford wives. “It’s kind of a thin movie,” admits Fisher, “but I think everyone enjoyed spoofing the spoof of what Hollywood thinks our lives are.” Needless to say, when choosing their outfits, Fisher explains, “not many of us had to venture outside of our own closets.”
