A PR assistant from INSTYLE magazine (the UK edition) contacted me to let me know that Vivien Leigh is nominated for their stylish film costume poll. From their website: “In Style and Sky Movies Drama present The Fabulous Film Costumes season, starting on Tuesday 1 January with the English Patient and finishing on Sunday 13 January with Marie Antoinette. In association with Subaru. For more top films, check out skymovies.com” Vote for Vivien now through the end of December! Click HERE to vote.
So many elements went into making Gone with the Wind a legendary film. Margaret Mitchell’s story of Rhett & Scarlett, the all star cast of Clark Gable, Olivia de Havilland, and Leslie Howard, the spot-on acting of the beautiful Vivien Leigh, and the stunning, over-the-top designs of Walter Plunkett. It’s difficult to narrow down my favorite gown Vivien wore in the film… maybe the silk green & white BBQ dress or the burgundy velvet dress Scarlett wore to Ashley’s birthday part. Read more about Mr. Plunkett and his designs HERE. So, what is your favorite gown?
