The Way We Wore

The Way We Wore: Styles of the 1930s and 1940s and Our World Since Then
by Marsha Hunt [746.92 qHun]

Marsha Hunt was signed by Paramount Pictures when she was just 17; later she signed with MGM. In this book she showcases some of the costumes she wore in her pictures. One section is devoted to the hats she wore. She includes some casual wear from the period and mentions a costume that she designed herself. In fact, she was a teenage model for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Anyone who likes films from the 30s and 40s will enjoy this book.
