The designers' stories are set against the backdrop of Hollywood: how they dealt with great movie stars; how they maneuvered within the studio system; and how they came to design clothing that is still iconic and influential to this day. Films discussed include: Pandora's Box, Rear Window, The Thomas Crown Affair,Bonnie and Clyde, Barbarella, Annie Hall, Taxi Driver,Blade Runner, Clueless, Reservoir Dogs, and much more. This gloriously illustrated book includes candid photos of the designers at work, portraits and wardrobe tests of stars in costume, designer sketches, documents, letters, and photos of the costumes themselves. Drawing from archival material and new interviews conducted with Oscar-winning designers, author Jay Jorgensen offers a highly informative, lavish, and entertaining history of Hollywood costume design.

This handsome book, the first comprehensive reference work on costume design in films, is a remarkable tribute to the men and women who "dress" a film. Substantially revised and updated, it not only presents a splendid record of costume designers' contributions to cinema but also those of some of the world's great couturiers. The heart of the book is an illustrated listing, arranged alphabetically by designer, providing biographical and career data (screen credits, major awards and nominations) for every major American, British, and French designer who worked on American and British films between 1909 and 1987. Among the designers are such luminaries as Adrian, Travis Banton, Edith Head, Christian Dior, Orry-Kelly, Givenchy, Jean Louis, Howard Greer, Helen Rose, Norman Hartnell, Irene Sharaff, Walter Plunkett, Charles LeMaire, Tony Walton, and Ann Roth. Their creations are featured in over 170 photographs and design renderings reproduced on high-quality coated stock. Also included is an invaluable index containing titles of 6,000 films, cross-indexed by designer, along with over 400 new film credits covering the period 1976 - 1987. In addition, an Appendix lists Academy Award nominations from 1948 (when the design award was first established), as well as the names of those honored by the British Academy for Film and Television Arts.
