Renié Conley is our next Classic Designer of the month. Wow what this woman created will be known forever. In the 1963 film 'Cleopatra', the dress that Elizabeth Taylor wears complete with gold headdress, jewellery and 24-carat cape. This was an incredibly breathtaking work of art, it was designed to look like the wings a phoenix. The cape itself was created from strips of gold-painted leather and embellished with thousands of beads and sequins. She won a Oscar for this masterpiece, I think we can all see why!
