On one of Scaasi's first meetings with the young celebrity, he remembered seeing her in a huge poncho and floppy hat which hid her good figure and youth, according to his autobiography Women I Have Dressed (and Undressed!).
The Designer: For the scandalous Oscar pantsuit, Scaasi told Streisand: "Let's show people how young and cute you are. Let's forget about that elegant bit," according to the Los Angeles Times.
Fashion Verdict: Streisand was an impressionable young actress under the influence of a highly opinionated designer.
