This week, Ira spoke with Diana Eden, author of “Stars in Their Underwear: My unpredictable journey from Broadway dancer to costume designer for some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.” In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Eden talks about her 30-year career in Hollywood; working in Las Vegas with Ann-Margret for her nightclub appearances, starting in 1974 (also working with Raquel Welch and Suzanne Somers on their acts); doing fittings on costumes for Jubilee’s opening at the MGM Grand and waking up in her room to the infamous fire; returning to Las Vegas the following August to remount the new show when the hotel re-opened; and her decision to move to Las Vegas after so many years in Hollywood.
After a career as a dancer and actress, Eden spent 30 years in Hollywood, costume designing prime time television series, soap operas, pilots, movies for TV, and feature films,
plus dozens of stage productions both in Los Angeles and New York.
She received an Emmy nomination for “A League of Their Own,” plus two more
Emmy nominations for NBC’s “Passions.”
