ADRIAN: A LIFETIME OF MOVIE GLAMOUR, ART AND HIGH FASHION
Mark A. Vieira
and Leonard Stanley
with foreword by Robin Adrian
From ruby slippers to fashion runways, ADRIAN is a visual celebration of the life and work of the man behind some of the most memorable fashions of Hollywood’s golden age.
Adrian (1903-1959) designed costumes for Broadway shows and over 150 Hollywood productions, including fabulous gowns worn by such iconic actresses as Greta Garbo, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Judy Garland, and Katharine Hepburn. ADRIAN is the first book on the famed Hollywood fashion and costume designer to be published with the cooperation of his family. With a foreword by the designer’s son, Robin Adrian, as well as a treasure trove of never-before-seen images and anecdotes taken from Adrian’s unpublished manuscript, this is the definitive book on the life of the legendary designer.

So many books…
