Edith Head is my new heroine of the hour. This one lady was responsible for many of the iconic moments of classic Hollywood history. She was the one who created the dress for Bette Davis in All About Eve. She was the one who designed Grace Kelly’s stunning wardrobe for Rear Window (one that I would very much like to have). She designed for Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday before Audrey became a style icon for millions of girls through the years. And she didn’t just design for the ladies. She dressed Elvis Presley. And Bob Hope.

And she managed to win eight Oscars.

A feat no other girl has ever accomplished.
By dressing the movie stars of Hollywood Edith Head stitched her name into history and will forever be remembered as an amazing lady with an impeccable sense of style and propriety.
