Wow! These are stunning! Thanks for posting!


I got to see these at the museum in February and they are incredible!
I had a question about another item I saw, but can't remember who wore it. There was a pair of short blue, high-waisted shorts that were slightly flared. I want to say they were from the '30s or '40s but I'm not sure. Amazing cut and fit! Could you remind me who wore it and in what film? Thank you! I look forward to coming back many times in the future!

Hi Rena,

The blue shorts you mention in your comment were worn by Jean Harlow in Reckless. They were designed by Adrian and made from silk crêpe & mother-of-pearl. Reckless was released in 1935, so you were correct in thinking that they were from the 1930s. Glad to hear you enjoyed the exhibit!
