*Oleg Cassini was known to be the Couturier of Camelot and dressed Jacqueline Kennedy many occasions. His older pieces are hard to find as they where cherished and worn to pieces. His first film in 1941 he was responsible for many of the best looks on film, dressing stars like Rita Hayworth, Gene Tierney (who he married), Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Lana Turner, etc. In 1952, he opened his own fashion house on Seventh Avenue.
