A few weeks ago I purchased, Edith Head: The Fifty-Year Career of Hollywood’s Greatest Costume Designer.
The book takes you through her 50 year career of being Hollywood’s most famous and respected costume designer. The book includes sketches and images from movies she worked on as well as images of all the great stars who she designer for; Grace Kelly, Bettie Davis, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor to name a few. Her career spanned from the late 30’s to the early 80’s, during this time she received more Academy Awards than any other woman in history. I highly highly recommend this book.
