I actually liked the fashion show part, which sort-of illustrated how Amneris was a superficial and a bit of an airhead. In some ways that made her character more likeable, in a Legally Blond sort-of way. My Strongest Suit:

So forget the inner me , observe the outer
I am what I wear and how I dress

Yes, it was pretty obvious what Strongest Suit was meant to represent and indicate but we didn't need such a huge production number to make it, especially when the succession of more and more extravagant outfits in the "fashion show" routine just took us away from the plot for ages and ages. For me, it was one of the most pointless wastes of time in a musical and epitomised the overblown nature of the whole show.
In case you couldn't work out, I felt quite strongly about it!

I do think it would be a great film for Disney, either animated or live action. with a bit of editing and tweaking it could be stunning.
