Hollywood and the Ivy Look

If you maxed out on the pre- and post-Oscars Red Carpet drag show last night, an antidote awaits in Hollywood and the Ivy Look, the quintessential period style guide from Reel Art Press. Featured photograph—a 1957 publicity still of Paul Newman in "the dream corduroy Ivy suit featuring interesting leather trim on top pocket worn with a white button-down shirt and black knitted tie"—bears the endearingly dated caption, "Mister Lucky." Other perfectors of the Ivy look include John Cassavetes, Woody Allen, Tab Hunter, Warren Beatty, Sidney Poitier and Vincent Price, to name just a few.
