Edith Head: A Genius was Born

Edith Head Best Costume Designer to date with Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly
Edith Head is one my heros. While I was studying theatre, I was so intrigued by her that I wrote a 20 page paper for my costume design class and was only required to write 10. haha. So, yes, she is someone that I really love and someone that I think is both brilliant, cunning and extremely talented. She is has had 35 oscar nominations and 8 academy awards for her costume designs! She has worked with some of the actresses of her time including Bette Davis, Rita Hayworth, Elizabeth Taylor, Katherine Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and many many more. Sadly, she died just a couples years after I was born. I would've loved to chat with her and ask her to tell me stories.
If you have ever watched The Incredibles, Edna was losely based on Edith.
