Film Style: Rear Window

I think Rear Window could well be my favourite Hitchcock film. It's true I have a soft spot for Jimmy Stewart, but it's really Grace Kelly and her fabulous wardrobe that makes me watch it again and again. Her character is a bit of a bimbo but the way she climbs over that wall in that full skirted dress - what a lady!

Doing a bit research on costume designer for Rear Window, Edith Head. Apparently Hitchcock used her for all his Paramount films. She also designed costumes for Carmen Miranda, Mae West, Bette Davis, Tippi Hedren and Rita Hayworth. I've always been so attracted to the style in Hitchcock films, and now I know who the genius was behind it!
