Shari Headley in Coming to America, 1988 with Eddie Murphy. Deborah Nadoolman-Landis was nominated for the Academy Award for costume design for her work in the film. As the storyline of the film was way over the top, she felt the wedding gown had to be equally as outrageous and and unlike any that had been seen on film before.
Nadoolman-Landis is also the author of the book Dressed: A Century of Hollywood Costume Design (2007).
