The 1940's Howard Hawks film His Girl Friday starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell features one of my all-time favorite costumes: a fabulous chevron striped coat and matching hat worn by Russell in the scene where she arrives back in the newsroom. It was designed by Columbia Pictures' resident costume designer Robert Kalloch.

No burlap potato sack or horse's feedbag for Victoire Roux. Wearing Mattel's 2002 recreation of the iconic costume from the 1956 I Love Lucy episode "Lucy Gets a Paris Gown", Victoire looks as if she just stepped off a page from a French fashion magazine. The delightful black suede asymmetric brimmed hat is from The Couture Touch.
