Description: From the moment he arrived at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Gilbert Adrian established himself as a Hollywood fashion force. Believing that costume can mirror a character's mood, he transformed his leading ladies into icons of style: Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow, and many others relied on Adrian to help them interpret their roles and make them glamorous.

The result of 10 years of research, including exclusive celebrity interviews and access to the studio's files, this lovingly assembled, lavishly illustrated volume is the first to trace Adrian's incredible career at MGM and his influence on American fashion. Featuring pristine duotone photographs -- many never before published -- from classics such as Grand Hotel, Queen Christina, The Women, and The Philadelphia Story, as well as costume sketches and a step-by-step rendering of a dress for Garbo, the book is as breathtaking as an Adrian gown.
