Jessica Lange as Frances Farmer in Frances (1982)
Rest in peace, Paul Walker. 40 years old…too young, too talented.
Tyrone Power and Loretta Young in Café Metropole, 1937
Grace’s wedding dress was the crowning achievement of Helen Rose’s career, and the most expensive garment she ever designed. The dress, valued at more than $7,200 at the time, had been worked on feverishly in top secret for six week by a platoon of three dozen seamstresses. Suitably feminine and elegant, it was an ivory high-necked, long-sleeved gown with a fitted bodice with an overlay of 125-year-old rose point lace. The cut of the gown accentuated Grace’s tiny waist; its voluminous bell skirt of silk taffeta, peau de soie, tulle, and lace billowed with hundreds of yards of fabric. The circular veil added ninety more yards of tulle, highlighted with seed pearls and affixed to a small fitted headpiece.
