A few famous Hitchcock ladies went before the camera for their costume tests, including Grace Kelly for Dial M for Murder (pictured at top), Tippi Hedren for Marnie (middle), and Psycho actress Vera Miles for Vertigo (bottom). Miles was set to play the part of Madeleine, which went to Kim Novak, but she became pregnant and had to withdraw from the role. This interview with Novak shares her thoughts on the costume, including why she chose not to wear a bra with the outfit.
