Edith Head

"Your dress should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady."

Today we celebrate the birthday of Edith Head, one of Hollywood's most iconic costume designers and true lady of classic fashion. 

Her work is inspiring and classy and is mostly worn by Hollywood starlets in the 30's, 40's and 50's. Edith worked for Paramount, Universal and was nominated for 35 Academy Awards. She worked with Bette Davis , Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Ginger Rogers and Elizabeth Taylor.
Even Edith herself has an unforgettable look. Black framed owl glass, thick black bangs and a perfect chignon. So cute.

You will be missed Edith Head. May your gorgeous designs live on and inspire future designers.
