And the Award for Best Costume Design Goes to...

...Kelvinator, for its 1965 production, 'Originals'. I can't quite make up my mind about which 'outfit' really takes the prize; maybe the Sampler, with its cross-stitched freezer door, or the frankly bizarre Carriage Lamp model. Credit for this concept goes to William Reddig, who was also a designer for Kelvinator's parent company, American Motors Corporation—a corporate relationship that obviously explains the number of auto motifs [Rambler '04, Flivver, Runabout, and 500] in this quirky appliance collection.
