'Acid Queen‘ dress, designed by Shirley Russell for Ken Russell's movie 'Tommy'

Shirley Russell was a British costume designer, nominated for 'Academy Awards' for her designs on „Agatha“ (1979) and „Reds“ (1981). She designed for stars such as Vanessa Redgrave, Rudolf Nureyev and Roger Daltrey. Her design for Daltrey was described by Russell as 'fantasticated gear' - the jacket had huge labels featuring keyboard motifs. Another 'fantasticated design‘ was the sequined cape for Tina Turner’s role as the 'Acid Queen‘ in the Rock Opera Tommy. Shirley was married with the film director Ken Russell for over twenty years.
