Garbo Glamour and Lamarr Allure

333 posts in this topic

In 1941, MGM costume-designer Adrian also left the studio, later saying:


"It was because of Garbo that I left M-G-M. In her last picture they wanted to make her a sweater girl, a real American type. I said, 'When the glamour ends for Garbo, it also ends for me. She has created a type. If you destroy that illusion, you destroy her.' When Garbo walked out of the studio, glamour went with her, and so did I."


The shots below are some of his creations for Miss GARBO.

James, I love the photo, below in the three-panel, with the pouty face. Makes her look almost human (meaning not ethereal).
