Complete with specially commissioned interviews with Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro, Ann Roth in conversation with Peter Biskind and Debbie Reynolds on the art of collecting, this book is a completely necessary non-wearable addition to our wardrobes. Consider it a recipe for style with history, film, fashion and Hollywood making up the ingredients list.
Hollywood Costume leads our focus away from current spring trends and fashion runways but onto the style and beauty of screens then and now. Kate Hudson in How to Loose A Guy in 10 Days reminds us of the glamorous party lifestyle while Marie Antoinette makes beehive hairstyles beyond fabulous. Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada is the epitome of couture fashion, Robert De Niro in Casino creates mens' high fashion suits and Matt Damon in his lime green swimming trunks in The Talented Mr Ripley defines the fashion industry as we know it today.
These costumes aren't in fashion or about fashion, they are fashion, shaping the diligence of the industry's professionals; a gem in fashion history.
