Best Dressed

Bette Davis wore this beautiful Edith Head creation in "All About Eve". Brown with fur cuffs and pockets. So gorgeous! The day the dress was to be used on set, Bette tried it on and to Edith's horror, the dress was fitted too small and didn't fit up past Bette's shoulders. Bette had the idea of pushing it down below her shoulders and the problem was solved. This dress makes her performance, rated one of the best ever in a film, all the better.

She looks like Tallulah Bankhead in that sketch.
