Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown, along with handwritten labels on each VHS tape and a handwritten card in which Mr. Knight describes the collection. First Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations in black and white. ISBN: 0684176610. The glamour and glitter of Hollywood's heyday are sumptuously portrayed in this fascinating look at film fashion from the silents to the present. A celebration, in a style as lavish as its subject matter, of the men and women who helped to create and sustain our image of Hollywood stars as glamorous people. The 44 VHS tapes, meticulously labeled with production information, contain numerous classic films recorded by Mr. Knight from television providing examples of the work of legendary costume designers Adrian, of MGM; Travis Banton, of Paramount; and Orry Kelly, of Warner Bros. A treat for anyone who shares Mr. Knight's passion for the Golden Age of Hollywood and its costumes. Tight binding.

About David Duncan

Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
