    Edie Adams' Screen-Worn Costumes, Including an Edith Head Design. Includes two of Edie's screen-worn costumes, the first a Rudi Gernreich suit comprising a three-button jacket with cuffed sleeve and straight skirt in red and white woven plaid, the jacket worn by Edie on the 1962 Bob Hope TV Special (in which she sang with Bing Crosby), as well as multiple magazine covers. The second piece is a fuchsia knit dress with a crocheted collar, designed by Edith Head, that Edie wore as Trina Yale in the 1966 movie The Oscar.
