Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design (Special Edition) (Hardback)

      • Product Description: 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".

        "Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design", 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.

        Deborah Nadoolman Landis is president of the Hollywood Costume Designers Guild, of which she has been a member for nearly thirty years. Her costume design credits include Animal House, The Blues Brothers, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Three Amigos and Coming to America, for which she received an Academy Award nomination. Landis has a Ph.D. in the history of costume design from the Royal College of Art
