Adrian Presentation at the Lasky-DeMille Barn in Hollywood

Adrian"Adrian: Nothing from a Store,” a lecture on designer Gilbert Adrian (best known as Adrian) and his time working with Cecil B. DeMille will be presented by author Richard Adkins, who's currently working on an Adrian biography, on Wednesday, March 11, at 7:30 pm at at the Hollywood Heritage Museum's Lasky-DeMille Barn at 2100 North Highland Avenue (across from the Hollywood Bowl).

Adrian, actress Janet Gaynor's husband from 1939 to his death in 1959 (theirs was a curious relationship), began his Hollywood career in the mid-1920s. He became associated with DeMille in 1925, later rising to the position of head of the costume department at the DeMille (later Pathé-DeMille) studio. When the producer-director moved his company to the MGM lot in late 1928, Adrian went with him. 

From then on, Adrian's reputation skyrocketed, as he (over)dressed the likes of Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Norma Shearer, Jean Harlow, and Myrna Loy.

Tickets: Hollywood Heritage Members: $5.00. Non-members: $8.00. Free parking, and refreshments available.
