Ever Taken a Look At John's Costumes
Have you ever noticed the link to John's Hollywood Costumes listed under my favorites? A friend and colleague actually collects Hollywood costumes and haute couture. His holdings are quite amazing actually - costumes worn by Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Claudette Colbert, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and many more. My favorite is the gown worn by Leslie Caron in An American in Paris.
I am amazed that someone personally owns these pieces of Hollywood history and I am always wishing that I could see some of his collection when they are being exhibited. John lives in NY and when he has exhibited, he is usually showing his collection in NY or NJ - not convenient to Atlanta. Every time I see an old film it reminds me of John. More than likely there is a costume from the film that he owns.
