About the Costume

This beautifully dyed gown first appeared on Ann Miller as Nadine Hale in the 1948 film Easter Parade. It was seen again in 1950 on Gale Robbins as Terry Lordel in Three Little Words.

This piece, designed by Irene, was one of the many costumes purchased by Debbie Reynolds at the MGM auction of 1970. After failing to find a permanent home where her pieces could be on display, Reynolds ultimately sold her collection in three separate auctions through Profiles in History. I’ve written a little bit more about the costume collection and the sales here.
