Why I fell in love with sequins!
Some people need sequins, others don’t.
Edith Head, one of my favourite Hollywood costumiers, once famously said, “Some people need sequins, others don’t.”
She made that comment to the press in reference to a dress she designed for Grace Kelly to wear at the 27th Academy Awards in 1955. The dress in ice-blue duchess satin was very simple, lacking any adornments and yet, it made Grace Kelly stand out from the crowds, Hollywood A-lister crowds that is. Kelly won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in “The Country Girl” that night. Edith Head was the winner for her Costume Design (Black and White) for “Sabrina”.
