Cinematically the Waist

Roz Russell
Auntie Mame, 1958
Costumes by Orry-Kelly
Hike that leg up, Mame. Required viewing for any aspiring drag queen, Auntie Mame was and is the great Rosalind Russell's defining role and for good reason. Mame is one of the most glamorous, eccentric, fabulous and most of all stylish characters to appear on film. And Orry-Kelly clearly had a ball with these costumes. There is no such thing as "too much." And the Eastern influences are timeless.

You're killing that jeweled sarong, Ms. Dennis
