  • Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute

    Richard Bernstein-designed poster for the third exhibition organized by Special Consultant to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Diana Vreeland. "Romantic and Glamorous Hollywood Design" ran from November 21, 1974-August 31, 1975.

    The exhibit presented more than one hundred costumes worn by film stars in
    movies made in Hollywood primarily in the 1920s to 1950s. They included original garments by notable film studio designers of the period: Adrian, Travis Banton, Cecil Beaton, Walter Plunkett, Edith Head, Orry Kelly, Jean Louis, Irene Sharaff, Helen Rose, and John Truscott.

    Vreeland also enlisted contemporary Seventh Avenue designers Bill Blass, Donna Karan for Anne Klein & Co., Ralph Lauren for Polo, Giorgio di Sant Angelo, Arnold Scaasi, and others to create copies of garments captured on Hollywood film stills but no longer existing. Among the garments exhibited were dresses worn by Mae West in "I'm No Angel", Greta Garbo in "Camille" and Claudette Colbert in "Cleopatra"
