DEBBIE REYNOLDS Styles 2016

THE LEADING LADY
Earlier this year, actress DEBBIE REYNOLDS whose career spans nearly seven decades and includes credits such as Singinin the Rain and, more recently, Behind the Candelabra was honoured for her lifetime achievement at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. When her daughter, Carrie Fisher, presented her the trophy, Reynolds was wearing a custom-made gold beaded gown by her long-time collaborator Bob Mackie. It was designed for my nightclub act, she says, referring to her Las Vegas stint.

Reynolds’s love of costumes began when she was a teen, sitting at the heels of costuming greats such as Edith Head. So in 1970, when MGM decided to sell off its coffers, Reynolds couldn’t stand by and watch as, she says, our history was being lost. So she purchased everything she could. I put it into chests and tissue paper, and I took care of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich… many of our great stars. But after decades of trying unsuccessfully to find a museum in which to showcase her 3,500-piece collection, she had to auction off her treasures: Marilyn Monroe’s iconic subway dress, Audrey Hepburn’s My Fair Lady Ascot gown, and so on. When the final item was sold, she says she was devastated. But Reynolds did hang on to a few favoured items: The Maltese Falcon, for one (valued at around $4 million) and over 40 ofher own costumes. They are for my granddaughter, she says. I want to save them for people who love me.
