Famous quotes containing the word gowns:

    My gowns were gorgeous, always low-cut, very décolleté. I wore hardly any makeup, just some lipsticks, that’s all. No lights. Just a baby spot. I wouldn’t have any entrance. They’d play the intro in the dark, and a spot would come on, and there I’d be.
    Richard Brooks (1912–1992)

    And I saw it was filled with graves,
    And tomb-stones where flowers should be;
    And Priests in black gowns were walking their rounds,
    And binding with briars my joys and desires.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
