The Blondes of Hitchcock

Throughout his life Alfred Hitchcock has always been the master of horrors, but the women in front of the camera did as much for him as those working behind the scenes. Contrary to what Hitch believed his leading ladies became his life line and the reason millions flocked to theatres to see them and why people today keep going back to his films. In this lecture costume designer and historian Jolene Marie Richardson will look deeply into the relationship between Hitch and his three most famous blondes, Grace Kelly, Janet Leigh, and Tippi Hedren. Their relationships on set, their lasting impact on the film industry at large, and how the look of the blonde became a Hitchcock signature throughout his film career.

Jolene Marie Richardson is a Costume Designer and Fashion Historian. You can currently see her work on The Last Drive In with Joe Bob Briggs streaming now on Shudder. She is the creator of Hanging by a Thread blog, a closer look at the designers and horror threads that have shaken us to our core, and she is the co-host of the To Dye For! Podcast, a costuming in horror podcast through the feminist lens.
