Venue: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Date: 9/9/2014 – 3/8/2015
“Dripping with diamonds and shimmering in satin, stars from Hollywood’s golden era wore luxurious fashions that epitomized on-screen style in the 1930s and 1940s—the most glamorous years of Hollywood film. Debuting at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), on September 9, 2014, Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen focuses on how jewelry and clothing contributed to the iconic style of several major stars of the period, including Gloria Swanson, Anna May Wong, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Mae West and Joan Crawford. Featured will be luxurious gowns by designers including Travis Banton, Adrian and Chanel, alongside exquisite jewelry by Trabert & Hoeffer-Mauboussin and Paul Flato, some of which were worn by the legendary actresses.
“On view through March 8, 2015 in the Loring Gallery, the exhibition is primarily drawn from the MFA’s collection along with loans from other museums, institutions and private collections––including celebrated Hollywood jewelry designer, Neil Lane.”
Hollywood Glamour is sponsored by Neil Lane Jewelry. Additional support from the David and Roberta Logie Fund for Textile and Fashion Arts and the Loring Textile Gallery Exhibition Fund.
