Happy Birthday Edith Head

Happy Birthday Edith Head

“If it is a Paramount film, I probably designed it.”

As I open my laptop this morning to see what’s the latest, I notice that the Google Doodle is different… There are six willowy figures and one very distinct woman with round specs. Cue Edith Head.

If you have ever wanted to channel Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, Elizabeth Taylor in A Place in the Sun or dress up as a Pan Am stewardess, you have Edith Head to thank.

Though Head had no formal training, she is legendary for her incredible costume sketches at Paramount Pictures that ultimately earned her a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Head dressed the greatest stars in Hollywood, received 35 Academy Award nominations, and won 8 Oscars!

So to celebrate what would be her 116th birthday, here are some of our favorite sketches of hers!
