Fashion Shot from “The Las Vegas Story”
Year of Jane Russell: Day 5
Here’s another scan from an original 8×10 negative, this one showing Jane Russell in a costume for The Las Vegas Story (1952). Michael Woulfe had originally been assigned to design the costumes for the film, but was instead moved to a different production. Howard Greer, who had designed Jane’s clothes in His Kind of Woman, got the assignment instead. Woulfe, who adored Jane, remained bitter about this for years and claimed two of his designs did make it into the film, uncredited. Since Woulfe’s costumes tended to be more flashy, I’m guessing this one is Greer. While Greer’s designs are more understated than Woulfe’s, Jane still looks fabulous in The Las Vegas Story.
