I was so pleased when New York Post reporter Raquel Laneri reached out to me a week ago to discuss the impact of film on fashion, particularly that of Oscar-nominated and winning pictures. Though our focus was on more recent movies, we happily talked about influential costume design going all the way back to Mary Pickford and Gloria Swanson in the silent era. Our conversation then continued through the decades and included style stars like Clara Bow and Joan Crawford in the 1920s through to Audrey Hepburn in the 1950s and 1960s. Those actresses didn't make it into the final article, but Faye Dunaway and Ali MacGraw and their trend-setting 1970s films did. I am quoted along with FIDM Museum curator Kevin Jones in a piece called "How Movies Change the Way We Dress," which you can read online. It also hit newsstands the Monday after the Oscars® in a three-page spread you can see below. And if you want to learn more about the most influential costume design on fashion decade by decade, you can visit my list of The Style Essentials.
