The beauty of Old Hollywood, the magic of studios and the glamour of the stars are on full display in this outstanding book.

utterly fabulous photos. would have preferred it to be organised chronologically rather than according to stars because adrian's trajectory as a designer might have been clearer then. but that's just a minor quibble. makes me wanna run out and watch all the movies all over again
