An Adrian costume design for Myrna Loy for What Price Beauty? (1925)
Pathé Exchange, 1925. Pencil and gouache on illustration board, signed at lower right, (“Adrian”), and inscribed on lower left: “Birthday Greeting / Myrna Loy.” The drawing, which depicts a blonde Myrna Loy in a sleek black gown with low gold sash, was executed for the Natacha Rambova-written and produced silent. This was one of the earliest film appearances of Myrna Loy, who played an exotic vamp, and among the earlier films for which Adrian designed costumes. | src Bonhams
