Happy Birthday Edith! Thanks for all the gorgeous fashion captured on film and movie stars!

edith-headOctober 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.

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!

Finally, I love looking at the sketches from some of Edith’s most famous films so I have included my favorites!edith-head-bette-dress-sketchSketch from one of my most favorite films, All About Eve!
