About the Costume

This peignoir, appliqued with red and pink flame-like designs, was created by famous costume designer Orry-Kelly (An American in Paris, Some Like it Hot) for the 1962 film Sweet Bird of Youth, where Geraldine Page wore it as Alexandra Del Lago. It was used again in a 1965 episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. entitled The Deadly Toys Affair when Angela Lansbury wore it as Elfie van Donck.
