You're Invited! Presenting HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM 1950s at Egyptian Theatre 6/23

My HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM screening series at the Egyptian Theatre continues with the 1950s on June 23!

This series is 7 parts - one event per decade from the 1920s to the 1980s - and each will be followed by a screening of a film featured in the talk. Some of the incredible style we celebrate this month is shown in the collage above.

Guest speaker
Egyptian Theatre
Hollywood, CA

If you love style in the movies, you are invited to join me to learn all about THE STYLE ESSENTIALS: HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM. The Style Essentials are 50 films with iconic costume design that immediately impacted fashion at the time they premiered and continue to influence fashion today. You can see the list of films covered in each talk in the link.

There is one talk for each decade - from the 1920s to 1980s - and each includes stills from the movies along with images from today's fashion accompanied by a conversation about film history, costume and fashion designers, and fascinating backstories of the stars.

The third event of the series focuses on the style icons from Hollywood during the 1950s - including Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Doris Day, Brigitte Bardot, and Marilyn Monroe.

Tickets are $15 for both the talk and screening. Click here to purchase tickets through the American Cinematheque and Fandango.


Already excited for the next event? The HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM 1960s with a screening of Audrey Hepburn in Two for the Road will be Saturday, August 25. Tickets are now available via the American Cinematheque website. Look forward to seeing you there!

Last month I had an audience that ranged from high school students
to 89-year-old star Clu Gulager who appeared in everything from westerns to film noir
