The Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston features gowns and exquisite jewelry from the 1930s and 1940s – the most glamorous years of Hollywood film. The exhibition focuses on several major starlets of the period, including Gloria Swanson, Anna May Wong, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Mae West, and Joan Crawford, exploring how jewelry and clothing contributed to their iconic style. On view through March 8, 2015, the exhibition is primarily drawn from the MFA’s collection along with loans from other museums, institutions and private collections – including Neil Lane. The inclusion of Neil’s collection pieces in the MFA Boston is the culmination of years of passionate and careful collecting. The pieces showcased in the MFA Boston exhibit represent some of his most notable from the 1930s and 1940s era – once worn by highly revered starlets including Mae West, Ginger Rogers and Myrna Loy.
