"These costumes remind me of a great film and a wonderful party given by Paul Allen who co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates. He flew Carrie, Todd and my granddaughter, Billie from Los Angeles to Venice, Italy to attend a costume ball. Todd wore the costume worn by Leslie Howard in the 1936 film, Romeo and Juliet. Carrie wore Norma Shearer’s gown. I did everyone’s makeup – all my years of training at MGM came in handy that night! I am wearing a costume from Conquest." Debbie Reynolds From the catalog (L to R):
