    Replica "All About Eve" Dress Owned by Bette Davis. With a cigarette in one hand, cocktail in the other, Bette Davis uttered one of the most memorable lines ever: "Fasten your seatbelts... it's going to be a bumpy night!" Davis' performance as Margo Channing in All About Eve would earn her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress and earn the film its Academy Award for Best Picture of 1950. In the film's most memorable scenes (and in the press photos), Davis wears a brown silk grosgrain dress with fur-trimmed pockets and cuffs, floor-length on her 5'3" frame. The iconic gown later appeared on the cover of Edith Head's Hollywood, and Bette David wrote the forward for the book. This dress is an exact replica made by the film's celebrated costume designer Edith Head and was created per Davis' request for her private collection. Davis later gave the dress to costume designer Don Feld as a gift. The dress remained in Mr. Feld's possession until very recently and was acquired directly from him. Though the dress is missing its belt and broach, it retains its rhinestone clips on the cuffs and heavy tulle and crinoline-lined petticoat. In Excellent condition.
