Schreier shares true stories gleaned from research and rare personal interviews with such movie industry insiders as costume designer Edith Head, screenwriter Elmore Leonard, and Madonna, among others.A highly entertaining raid on Hollywood's closets, Hollywood Dressed and Undressed is a must for film buffs, fashion cognoscenti, and devotees of American pop culture.
  • As someone who's interested in fashion history (and who runs awebsite dedicated to the role of opera gloves in the history offashion and the movies, I found this book an excellent visual introduction to the importance of fashion in Hollywood. The writing is snappy and breezy, and the pictures (which, after all, *is* why you're buying this book - isn't it?) are gorgeous. Truth in packaging compels me to reveal that I read this book at my local library, but it's definitely on my wish list! END

  • I bought both books by this author based on the reviews..It was a huge MISTAKE & a massive waste of money..I will try to sell them..I am confused why they bother to list the costumer for each photo...Almost all photos are from the breast up & from the side whilst holding objects in front of themselves(i.e. fans,bouquets,cocktail glass & on & on)..You can't see the costumes..The shots that are full size are of Major stars in bathing suits(Gable,Monroe,Hayworth,Colbert,Williams,(Lamour in a sarong naturally)etc..I will leave this same review for her other waste of moneyHollywood gets married...If you want to see the actual COSTUME worn AVOID both of this author's books...

  • I have read many books on Hollywood style as I am a fan of the movies but this book is now my absolute favorite! Schreier puts a very entertaining twist on Hollywood style that not only taught me a few things but also made me laugh out loud. I was so sad when the book ended - I just wanted more! This book is great for anyone who has an interest in Hollywood fashion, the movies or simply anyone who just wants to be entertained. I highly recommend Schreier's book!

  • I have seen Ms. Schreier on the A&E Channel on several occasions over the last few months discussing hollywood fashion in the movies -- she always provides so many great inside tidbits that I had to go and buy this book. The book did not disappoint! As a 40 year lover of the movies -- I found her stories enlightening as well as very entertaining. I can't wait for the sequel!

  • Again, someone who is relying on old outdated myths and legend has written a book for sensationalism. Shreier's treatment of Clara Bow and Marion Davies is shameful to say the least considering all the facts that have been unearthed in recent years regarding both ladies. Bow triumphed at Fox with her two final films, and it was HER OWN idea to retire to Nevada with her rancher husband Rex Bell; Fox begged Clara to stay. Davies was one of the most gifted and well loved clowns of her era. She is accumulating a wealth of latter day fans who are discovering this fact. While stifled under some of the more lofty productions hoisted on her by Hearst, Marion was brilliantly funny in many films and also retired (as many of the leading ladies did at the time) when she hit 40. If you pick up this book, please read Shreier like Mother Goose, either way it's all fantasy. Let's try to find the real facts when proposing to talk about other peoples lives.

  • I AM A HOLLYWOOD NUT. . .I love everything about the movies. At last, here is a new twist, by an author who seems to love the movies as much as I do. Thanks, Sandy.

  • I purchased a copy of this book because so many of my favorite actors were shown in great photos. I started reading the captions and chuckled at the quick quips and short anecdotes. I ended up buying more copies as gifts. This book has turned out to be one of the best books I have ever given. I hope others will get it for their library. It's not only for movie buffs, but the great photos and stories make a fun afternoon read.
