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 commonvisually 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 designerthink 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, Oscarnominated costume designer Deborah Landis presents 100 years of Hollywood's most tantalizing wardrobes.

Featuring 300 highquality photographs and scores of original sketchesmany in color, and seen here for the first time, Dressed is part glossy lookbook, part insightful guide to the costumer's artand this exquisite collector's edition, the one book no film and fashion lover will want to be without.
