Overview
From the lavish productions of the 1930s to the extravagance of the 1980s and the blockbusters of the '90s, Hollywood's most memorable movie moments all have one thing in common--visually stunning costume design. Whether spectacular or subtle, elaborate or barely there, costumes must be more than merely a perfect fit; they speak a language all their own, communicating mood, personality, and setting, and propelling the action of the movie as much as a scripted line or synthetic clap of thunder. More than a few careers have been launched from costumes alone, and many an era defined by the intuition of a costume designer--think Charlie Chaplin in The Little Tramp, Judy Garland in A Star Is Born, Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones. In Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design, Oscar-nominated costume designer Deborah Landis showcases 100 years of Hollywood's most tantalizing wardrobes. Oversize and lavishly printed, the book features 300 high-quality photographs from every decade in Hollywood history, along with scores of original sketches--many in color, and seen here for the first time. Part glossy look-book, part insightful guide to the costumer's art, Dressed is the one book no film and fashion lover should be without.
