Always marry for love, but considering money, security…or if you’re an actress, a guaranteed gorgeous on-screen wardrobe certainly helps!
Hollywood leading lady Gene Tierney and famed designer Oleg Cassini married in 1941, against the wishes of her parents. Certainly, if she were a gold digger or marrying for social position, she would have taken Howard Hughes up on his proposal. But a husband whose job is to ensure his wife looks amazing on-screen would certainly be a career asset!
The marriage didn’t last, but their film collaborations certainly did. For Hollywood, a beautiful and talented star and equally talented costume designer is truly a match made in heaven.
