Description

    An Elaborate and Beautiful Costume by Manuel from "Rhinestone." 20th Century Fox, 1984. The top made of black wool, long sleeves, beautiful and ornate red and white rhinestone detailing/fringe on the collar, top and back yoke, and cuffs, tuck-in strap at waist, label reads "Manuel / Exclusive Clothier" [the protégé to Nudie Cohn of the famous Nudie's Rodeo Tailors, tailor to the stars for decades]; together with matching pants, stir-up feet, white rhinestone detailing on front pockets and a matching belt with an oval buckle adorned with same red and white rhinestones, similar label as top; also included is a pair of black leather cowboy boots still further adorned with white rhinestones; worn by Stallone as "Nick" in this musical comedy that co-starred the incomparable Dolly Parton as "Jake Farris." (Please note the top is extremely heavy due to the thousands of quality rhinestones used to make this ensemble with only a few missing.)

    "Do you know what this cost to make? $30,000! And it's about 25 pounds! The movie wasn't so good but the costume was great! It was made by Manuel who was a protégé of Nudie Cohn, the legendary tailor here in Hollywood. The design itself is a throwback to the Wild West but Manuel brought it up to Las Vegas standards with all its glitter and rhinestones. This is probably the heaviest single costume I ever had to wear, and the hottest temperature-wise, that I was ever forced into, but I had a lot of fun wearing it. I also had a ball singing with Dolly Parton -- I just wish my voice was as good as hers! Making this movie was one of those 'once-in-a-lifetime' situations."
