Happy Birthday Edith! Thanks for all the gorgeous fashion captured on film and movie stars!
October 28th is Edith Head’s birthday and I have enjoyed learning so much about this talented costume designer this year! I want to share two wonderful resources and opportunities if you would like to learn more too!
1. Kimberly Truhler has a fabulous website called GlamAmor. She has lots of information regarding Edith Head and the stars she dressed and collaborated with in films, movies and special events. Below is Edith Head and Gloria Swanson during the filming of Sunset Boulevard.
2. Susan Claassen’s live performance as Edith Head in a play called: A Conversation with Edith Head. She has an uncanny resemblance to Edith Head and makes appearances as Edith Head as well as performing her show. Get details here for her upcoming schedule.
3. Edith Head had some great quotes! Click here to read some of her best!
Interesting note regarding the Breakfast at Tiffanys sketch above: Hubert de Givenchy designed the clothing for Audrey Hepburn while for this film and Edith Head’s title is Costume Supervisor.
Sketch for Elizabeth Taylor costume for A Place In The Sun. Great film by the way!
Another fabulous gown by Hubert de Givenchy! Despite the fact the Givenchy designed Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe for this film, it is very interesting that Edith Head signs the sketch! Again, her title for this film was Costume Supervisor.
