Dorothy Lamour in The Hurricane
I'm always interested to see who is up for Best Costume at the Academy Awards each year. A film could be terrible but still have wardrobe that shined bright enough for a nomination and a win. Since the Oscars are coming up this weekend, I'm sharing a few of my favorite looks created by Edith Head, arguably the most prolific of costume designers for stage and screen. Her personal style was pretty magical as well.This year's line-up of nominees is so very varied, I'm not sure who will win. While the looks created for The Invisible Woman are beautiful, there's something about the costume design for American Hustle that I find more intriguing.
Today I have something special for my Pittsburgh readers, I'm so excited to be partnering with the Pittsburgh Film Office to give away two tickets to this Sunday's Lights! Glamour! Action! event presented by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. The giveaway is over on my Instagram (@OrchidGrey), so if you're in PGH (or close to it), and want to get dressed up and watch the Oscars with me (fancy dresses! champagne!), I'd love for you to enter!
