Dennis visits the West Hollywood home of costume designer Daniel Orlandi who is currently nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award for his work on the HBO movie "The Normal Heart." He talks about the emotional experience of working on the project, putting Matt Bomer and Mark Ruffalo in the old Levis he'd been storing in his garage since the 80's. He also talks about all the huge stars he's costumed, including Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Will Farrell, Emma Thompson, Julianne Moore, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe, Renee Zelweger, Chris Pratt and many more. He recalls how he got his first job in Hollywood working with Bob Mackie and meeting stars like Cher, Joan Rivers and Lucille Ball while working there. He talks about designing costumes for David Copperfield and winning an Emmy for it, how Robert DeNiro gave his career a big boost, his favorite souviners from the movies he's worked on, and the diva who wiped a booger on his sleeve.
