'Classic Designer Month: Edith Head'

February is 'Classic Designer Month', I will be taking us back to the great classic designers who dressed Grace Kelly to Marilyn Monroe!
Our first is amazing designer, Edith Head! She is known as the costume designer for many movies such as All About Eve (Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe), Rear Window (Grace Kelly) and The Sting. She won 8 Academy Awards for costume design a record she still holds today! Head was brilliant and her technique was very wide ranged as she created wonderfully simple designs to elaborately flamboyant.
The dress is the photo below was being created for Grace Kelly in 'The Country Girl', which won an Oscar in 1955.
