Costume Designer

Unless you’re a theater buff, the name Theoni Aldredge may not ring any bells. The recently deceased costume designer was a master of Broadway – her decades long career includes productions of A Chorus Line, La Cage Aux Folles, and 42nd Street.

But even if you’ve never seen one of these performances, you’ve more than likely seen her work on the silver screen. She was behind some great classic films and her costumes are iconic: the ghost busters uniforms and Annie’s red dress.

She also made Faye Dunaway beyond gorgeous and chic is The Eyes of Laura Mars, Network, and Three Days of the Condor. The latter of which Robert Redford is dressed impeccably – the second most fashionable moment in his career next only to Great Gatsby – which Aldredge also designed costumes for.
