Fashion changed forever on November 28, 1973, when a team of top U.S. designers—including Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, and Anne Klein—faced off on the runway against Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin, and the rest of a well-heeled French lineup considered the best in the world. The lavish spectacle in King Louis XIV’s Palace of Versailles drew many of the world’s social elite.

The Americans stole the show, in no small part due to a dynamic and groundbreaking group of models featuring 10 African Americans.

Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion critic Robin Givhan of The Washington Post discusses her new book about a night that altered the industry’s view of race, gender, sexuality, and economics for decades to come.

Orson Welles, born 100 years ago this month, would have left an indelible imprint on filmmaking if he’d stopped with Citizen Kane in 1941. But he would work more than four more decades, accruing 35 big-screen credits as a director and more than 100 as an actor before his death in 1985. Recall, or be introduced to, Welles’ genius with screenings of five of his films in May – curated by John Tibbetts, associate professor of film and media studies at the University of Kansas.

In the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault, Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
