Edith And The Princess - A True Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, there lived an actress named Grace Kelly who had smooth blonde hair, wore white leather gloves, and made an array of subtle pastel hues into a fashion sensation.

Grace had many characteristics and qualities of a real-life Cinderella – she even had a fashion fairy godmother, Edith Head, who could turn her from a deprived housewife in The Country Girl to the belle of the ball in To Catch A Thief.

Edith’s designs accented Grace’s natural beauty, and perfectly framed her charm and wholesomeness. The actress and the costume designer worked on four films together: Rear Window, The Bridges of Toko-Ri, The Country Girl, and To Catch A Thief. The costumes featured in Rear Window, where Grace plays socialite Lisa Freemont, add luxury and decoration to the stark and banal world of L.B. Jefferies’ apartment – her fashions always added an element of escapism, which is one of the reasons why the costumes in her films created such fan-fare.

Edith and Grace also collaborated on her Oscar-winning gown, which Grace wore to the New York premiere of The Country Girl – a pale sea-foam green-blue French double duchess satin affair with spaghetti stapes, fitted bodice, and a draped skirt that tappers down to the hem, completed by a train that lightly trails in her wake. The dress cost $4,000 in 1955, making it one of the award show’s most expensive garments, thus transforming the ceremony into a high-end fashion event that has grown into one of the industry’s most valuable ways of marketing – marrying fashion with celebrity.

Edith’s designs for Grace are timeless, even a gold lame 18th century-style gown, with all of its drama, puts construction first with light accents second to keep the actress and the design balanced rather than competing with each other.

The beauty of Grace and Edith Head’s partnership is that they consistently conjure up feelings of “once upon a time,” and “happily ever after.”

Julien’s is currently offering an original Edith Head costume illustration for a Grace Kelly dress from the production of the Hitchcock thriller To Catch a Thief – the illustration was even featured in the book Grace Kelly: Hollywood Dream Girl.

Edith And The Princess - A True Fairy Tale

With the recent release of Greta Gerwig’s highly anticipated feature film Barbie, it seems the world has truly turned pink!

On the surface, “Barbiecore” is a bright, vibrant trend defined by the color pink – but symbolically it’s a means for unapologetic femininity and power.


Here at Julien’s we can help you find the perfect ensembles for your pink addiction, including a fifties-era day dress worn by the indomitable Joan Crawford in her title role as Harriet Craig, or a simple T-shirt worn by the adorable Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates, or a body-hugging sequined dress worn by Madchen Amick (remember Twin Peaks) in the thriller, Heartless – but if you really want to be in the spotlight, you should try bidding on the Givenchy flamingo-pink evening dress worn by the iconic Audrey Hepburn in her famous role as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.


As Barbie always says, you really can be anything!

Blade Runner - The Future Is Here!
Peggy Sue And Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage has undergone many transformations in his career, from passionate, angst-ridden opera enthusiast to manic vampire, to action hero, and beyond.

My favorite period in his oeuvre remains the 1980s. One of his most underrated performances from that period is as Charlie in his uncle, Francis Ford Coppola’s 1986 film Peggy Sue Got Married. In our upcoming Legends: Hollywood and Royalty auction, we are currently offering a photo-matched, custom-made, 1960s-style jacket worn by Cage in the climactic scene of the film. Undoubtedly, some of Nicolas Cage’s cool will wear off on anyone who wears it.

In Peggy Sue Got Married, Kathleen Turner plays a divorcee who faints at her 25th high school reunion in 1985, and is transported back to 1960 to re-experience her high school years – but this time with the wisdom of adulthood.

Things get complicated when she encounters her boyfriend (Cage), who she now knows will one day be her ex-husband. Cage consciously plays Charlie in a caricatured style, using an almost cartoonish voice. This bold choice—one of many that he’s made in his career—has often been criticized. But by emphasizing the character’s youth to the point of ridiculousness, we see him as Peggy Sue likely does (can you imagine dating your teenage high school boyfriend in your 40s?!).

Cage wears the jacket in two scenes: the first in Peggy Sue's basement, when he wakes her in the middle of the night, angry that she was seen with another guy, and later in the rain outside a greenhouse in Peggy Sue's touching last scene before she returns to the present time.

The jacket was made by Nicky Sherlock of PZAZZ Designs Costumes, who employed Bill Belew and Gene Doucette while they made Elvis Presley's jumpsuits. The company, which opened in the late 1960s, folded at the time of Peggy Sue's production, making this one of the last items from their storied existence.

Be sure to check out our Legends: Hollywood and Royalty auction to bid on this and other film-worn costumes that will give your wardrobe a little stardust!
