NOTES

"He loved each one of us. He saw us as perfect the way God made us." --Carol Channing, clothed by Jean Louis for "Thoroughly Modern Millie"

"Jean felt it was important to see the woman, not the dress." --Loretta Young

Louis donated his 1956 Oscar to a French museum.

For many years the secret of how Rita Hayworth's "Gilda" gown remained in place even when she lifted her arms was a mystery. Louis revealed the secret to People magazine in 1987: plastic molding inside the top.
