THE BIRD LOOK
STREISAND IN FULL PLUMAGE, HEADDRESS BY LEON BENNETT, FOR RUDI GERNEICH
SHE is the overnight success, the American Cinderella, who made it out of Brooklyn to smashing Broadway stardom. She married her leading man, acquired an aerie on Central Park West and an even greater smash hit in her current starring role in “Funny Girl.” She has now sewed it all up with the fine print of a multi-million dollar television contract.
HE is the consummate showman, the artist as press agent, the man who packed an uproarious crowd into an equally uproarious fashion show where the touted star was to be the American woman, unadorned. Though she never appeared, he and his fashion were front-page news.
THEY are the boisterous reigning monarchs of the American Dream, and if they march to a different tune than the rest of the country, millions of the faithful will swear that the rest of the country is out of step.
Here they meet as Streisand models Gernreich
Barbra Streisand under the yashmak, Leon Bennett's adaptation of a Mohammedan woman's veil. From shoulder to thigh, Gernreich's black and tan reversible camel hair dress and coat. Long black suede boots over black wool stockings, both by Capezio.
