May I recommend
"Classic Hollywood Style" by Caroline Young.
Some of you may already know of it, but it is now in all the usual remainder bookshops, which is how I found it!
It is a hefty book, beautifully illustrated, about film costume style of the classic Hollywood years from 1921 to 1968.
The author discusses the hows and whys behind the designs in each film, with original designer sketches and back-stage anecdotes.
The book covers 34 films, including "All about Eve", "Gentlemen prefer Blondes" and "7 year Itch".
Lovely pictures of Marilyn, too.
Thank you Alanma!
Not only do I adore our Marilyn. I love the costumes of the early films. Will have to check this out!

Thank you Alan, this is a book for me ! But, without a doubt, not easy to find, or has it been published recently ?

The golden Hollywood-era style is so colorful and interesting in many ways, so photogenic. The costumes, the make-up style of women, not to mention last but not least, the lighting and photography in all films.
