Janet Leigh Wearing Exquisite Silver Dress
(Original Caption) Oscar Night Sparkle. It will be rather difficult to miss beauteous Janet Leigh when the TV cameras focus on Oscar Night in Hollywood April 4, via NBC starting at 10PM EST. Six months ago under supervision of top designer Edith Head artisans started hand crocheting 186,000 sterling silver lined Czechoslovakian bugle beads to chiffon dyed Janet's skin color. She'll wear the 20-pound dress, commissioned as a gift from her husband Tony Curtis, on the Academy Award telecast.
