One of my favourite actors of all times. Met him once briefly in 1986, a very charming and most intriguing man. This photograph although dating from the 30’s is very contemporary in style indeed.

Elizabeth Taylor wearing an Edith Head designed dress in A Place in the Sun, 1951.
The dress had six layers of white net over a pale mint green taffeta , studded with single velvet violets, and a bodice covered in white velvet violets with green centers. It caused a sensation among prom-going young ladies that year. Manufacturers recognized the fact and had copies of the gowns ready for purchase in stores at the time of the film’s release.
Salvador Dali, Paris, 1934. Even the way he wears his tie is kind of surreal.
