Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design

posted by Free Press Houston @ 11:22 AM

The title states Dressed: A Century of Costume Design. You can believe this expansive book covers the entire history of film as you glance through page after page, picture after drawing of famous actors in the clothes that made them famous. Starting with silent stars like Mary Pickford and covering each decade in cinema to the present this book by Deborah Nadoolman Landis spotlights the various and in most cases anonymous costume designers responsible for looks that subsequently changed their era's fashion.
Published by Collins Design the book has copious references and notes, an introduction by Anjelica Huston and runs over 560 pages. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston will host as Landis presents a lecture based on her book, followed by a reception and book signing tonight starting at 6:30 at the Brown Auditorium Theater.
