"With lush photographs and swoon-worthy designs, Adrian: A Lifetime of Movie Glamour, Art, and High Fashion by Leonard Stanley revisits the designer's work, giving his craft new life." --CR FASHION BOOK.COM

"The most extensive book to date on Adrian (who successfully transitioned from film to fashion by 1941, opening a Beverly Hills salon the following year), the tome pays tribute to his fantastical MGM handiwork and offers a complete assessment of the career enjoyed by "Hollywood's highest paid couturier," as he was known in his heyday. Adrian was a polymath. Featuring previously unseen images, including his lavish sketches and Surrealist-inspired paintings (culled from the collection of the author, historian Leonard Stanley), this extensive study also displays a trove of archival photography and magazine articles chronicling the striking decor he conjured for his homes in and around Los Angeles."
--HOLLYWOOD REPORTER "Written by Leonard Stanley, a preeminent collector of costume design sketches, and Mark A. Vieira, with a foreword by Adrian's son, Robin Adrian, these pages celebrate the life and iconic work of the mononymous designer and costumer, who concepted ensembles for more than 150 productions during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Enjoy reviewing sketches and photographs of incredible gowns worn by Greta Garbo, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Judy Garland, Katharine Hepburn and others." --C: CALIFORNIA STYLE MAGAZINE "If looks could astound, add in the magnificent photos of costumes and fashions that Adrian created. Most important is the unique first-hand perspective in Adrian's writing about his life and career. Adding to that is the authorization of his son Robin Adrian and the heartfelt admiration in the introduction and throughout the book by longtime devotee Leonard Stanley, a lifelong collector and fan of all things "Adrian." Cap it off with Mark A. Vieira's writing, and, well, "This book stepped out of a dream." All in all, it is beauty personified because of Adrian's remarkable talent as a fashion designer." --EDGE MEDIA NETWORK
