Arlene Dahl Paper Dolls
by NormaLu Mehan
from Paper Studio Press
If Jim Howard is America's top fashion illustrator, Norma Lu Mehan is a close second! Her fabric renderings are spot on, and her portrait work is suberb. This beautiful portrait set of one of America's great lovelies, is a fine example of Norma Lu's abilities. Norma worked with the glamorous star herself resulting in this gorgeous new paper doll book.
There are two dolls, and exquisite portraits on the covers. Inside are actual clothes worn by the star in her films, with many having been designed by her (she was the first star to receive fashion design credit in a film for designing her own clothes.) There are fashions from: Here Come the Girls (Edith Head,) The Diamond Queen (Travilla,) Journey to the Center of the Earth (David Ffolkes,) Sangaree (E. Head,) My Wild Irish Rose (Travilla,) Three Little Words (Helen Rose,) Here Come the Girls (E. Head,) A Woman's World (Charles LeMaire,) Kisses for My President (Howard Shoup.)
Also here is a bridal gown by Helen Rose for Miss Dahl in her wedding to Lex Barker; a negligee' designed by Miss Dahl for the cover of Life Magazine, and costumes she designed for herself in She Played With Fire and Slightly Scarlett. There are inserts of photos and another art portrait by Norma Lu on the fashion pages.
Eight lovely pages of costumes and two dolls. Finished book size- 8.5" x 11.5.
