Beatles Costume Designer Julie Harris Dies at 94

The Beatles

Julie Harris, an Academy Award-winning costume designer who outfitted James Bond and The Beatles, has died at 94.

Jo Botting, a British Film Institute curator, said Harris died Saturday at a London hospital after suffering from a chest infection.

Harris played a major role in capturing the look of 1960s "Swinging London" on film. She dressed The Beatles for both A Hard Day's Night and Help! - saying later, "I must be one of the few people who can claim they have seen John, Paul, George and Ringo naked."

She won an Oscar for the 1965 film Darling starring Dirk Bogarde and Julie Christie, and a British film award, the BAFTA, for the 1966 Michael Caine comedy The Wrong Box.

Harris is survived by her goddaughter, Serena Dilnot.
