Costume seen on Julie Andrews as Gertrude Lawrence
Funny Lady
Costume seen on an extra

This black and white sequined gown was designed by costumer Donald Brooks.  Brooks has relatively few film credits to his name, as he tended to design mostly for Broadway shows.  He also designed for clients such as Grace Kelly, Barbra Striesand and Jacqueline Kennedy.  In 1963 he received both a Tony Nomination and an Academy Award nomination for best costume design.

This costume was designed for Julie Andrews portrayal of Gertrude Lawrence in the 1968 film Star!  The gown made another appearance on an extra playing a lounge singer in the 1974 film Funny Lady.
