Just who was influenced by whom?Allan Tannenbaum, an iconic photographer that documented much of the 1970s nightlife, played a significant role in inspiring the Oscar-nominated film, American Hustle.

Author Tom Wolfe
Jennifer Lawrence's nearly backless silver gown, a wrap dress worn by Amy Adams and a white suit donned by Jeremy Renner were all directly inspired by outfits worn by Jerry Hall and author Tom Wolfe as photographed by Tannenbaum.
