About the Costume

Donald Brooks is rarely spoken of when it comes to Hollywood costumes. In 1963 he opened his own store, becoming one of the premiere fashion designers in the world, creating pieces for Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Princess Grace, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, and more. When designing costumes, he tended to work primarily in theatre rather than film. In 1963 he received a Tony Nomination for best costume design for No Strings!, an Oscar Nomination for The Cardinal, and won three Coty Awards.

This black and white sequined costume was designed for Julie Andrews portrayal of Gertrude Lawrence in the 1968 film Star! The gown made another appearance on an extra as a lounge singer in the 1975 film Funny Lady.
