Marlene worn his clothes also in private life!

1938 walking in Paris with her husband Rudolf Sieber

She is wearing a tailored suit designed by Travis Banton with a fox fur and a peak hat tilted over one eye. Her husband sports a fleck tweed overcoat over a chalk stripe suit.

thanks cheiby. I love the gold and jewel encrusted gown in post #171, by all accounts, it was one of Paramount's most expensive gowns ever but Banton's collaboration with Marlene is really over the top.
I think that's why I prefer his wardrobe for Lombard. it was slinky and sometimes romantic, certainly more approachable

I found this picture and the following description on jetsetmodern.com:

For 1932's Shanghai Express, Travis Banton and Marlene Dietrich worked together to find exactly the right coq feathers and veiling for this shot (1 and at top of article). The feathers had to have a certain iridescence, and the veiling had to repeat the shadows from the Venetian blinds of the train window. In the 1937 comedy Nothing Sacred, Banton knew that Carole Lombard would look her best in blue, but the Technicolor process tended to exaggerate the color. This beaded dress and its matching fox furs were a much lighter blue than they appear here (2). In 1935, Dietrich made her last Josef von Sternberg movie, The Devil Is a Woman. Banton's most phantasmagorical mode is seen in (3); Dietrich is supposedly a factory worker, circa 1900. Dispensing with historical accuracy, the designer gave her a leg slit, sequined flounces, and pailletted stockings. In the same movie, Dietrich's first appearance (4) is in a strapless dress- completely inaccurate for the period- worn with a domino mask and a mantilla made of pom-pom fringe. The round pom-poms deliberately echo the shape of the balloons.

He also did her clothing in No Man of Her Own (with Gable), so here are some shots from classicmoviefavorites.com.

I also found an actual picture of a dress from this movie on fidm.edu

Thanks thehepburn

I couldn't find any pics of Lombard in his designs, but I'll keep looking.
Besides, Luxury's Lap has found some already. Thanks
