Made for Each Other : Fashion and the Academy Awards
At the Academy Awards, the answers to who wore what matter just as much as who won what. Focusing on the actresses nominated for Oscars and a few seminal presenters, "Made for Each Other" will appeal to fashion mavens and film buffs alike. Bronwyn Cosgrave traces the fashion trends of the widely watched Oscars ceremony from its inception in 1929 to the present, from the sartorial splendor of Marlene Dietrich, to Barbra Streisand's eye-popping see-through trouser-suit, to the bizarre Swan Lake tutu Bjork wore to the 2001 ceremony. A revealing account of the glamorous actresses, the international designers, and the intimate details that go in to preparing for that walk down the red carpet, "Made for Each Other" demonstrates that from the beginning, fashion was as integral to Oscar night as the films it celebrated.
