Evidently there’s a day for everything. Today is Alfred Hitchcock Day, and so we raise a toast to actor Anthony Perkins, who starred in Hitch’s 1960 film “Psycho.” Perkins, who’s appeared on Ivy Style several times before, showed that a tall, lanky man can still look great in sack suits and blousy buttondowns.
You’d probably, however, rather look at pictures of Janet Leigh in the shower. At least before the blood (chocolate syrup on the film set) begins to pour. And there’s probably a chocoholic out there who thinks Janet Leigh covered in chocolate syrup is his idea of heaven.
There’s also some sad news today related to film sirens and the Ivy League decked-out guys who played opposite them. Fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy has died at the age of 91. He designed the iconic little black dress that Audrey Hepburn wears in the opening of “Breakfast At Tiffany’s,” and another shorter black dress worn later with trad-clad George Peppard. — CC
Janet passed her acting talent on to her daughter, Jamie. Both proved that an actress can deliver a very memorable performances without the aid of a costume.
@whiskeydent And of course Janet’s other daughter Kelly played Muffy in Trading Places, it all connects eventually, doesn’t it?
Liquid chocolate. Interesting. The things you can away with in the black and white oeuvre.
