Edith Head

Hey guys, today I am going to talk about my favorite costume designer, Edith Head. Edith Head was the costume designer at Paramount for many years, then worked with Universal Pictures. She had a chance to work with many famous actresses like Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn Ginger RogersSophia LorenBarbara StanwyckShirley MacLaine,Grace Kelly, and Natalie Wood. She also won 8 academy awards!
Here are some of my favorite's of her designs: 
Of course the dreamy gown worn by Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.
As well as the one worn in Sabrina.
And this lovely little number worn by Elizabeth Taylor in a Place in the Sun.
Who could forget this dress made for Grace Kelly in To catch a Thief. 
Next time you watch an old movie,be on the lookout for her name in the credits, because you will find the most memorable costumes of old Hollywood.
