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 presents 100 years of Hollywood's most tantalizing wardrobes. With a foreword from Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston, this limited edition book, signed by the author and impeccably designed, is a flawless showcase of each decade of Hollywood history. Featuring 300 high-quality photographs and scores of original sketches- many in color, and seen here for the first time, Dressed is part glossy lookbook, part insightful guide to the costumer's art-and this exquisite collector's edition, the one book no film and fashion lover will want to be without.
