Edith Head was such a weirdo. She was also an Oscar-winning, costume-designing genius.
She's known for creating the costumes and winning Academy Awards for such fab films as "Roman Holiday," "A Place in the Sun" and "Funny Face." She also dressed nearly every screen-goddess icon of her time: Elizabeth Taylor, Veronica Lake, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn to name just a few.
She's also rumored to have taken credit for designs that were not her own. Oh the drama! What do I know? I don't. Maybe she did. Maybe she didn't. It can't be denied she was talented. And her own style was so different from that of her leading ladies. They were these glamazons and she was all about some tiny bangs, round sunglasses and no nonsense suits.
She was a business woman. A career gal. And she had a strange, signature look all her own. Loving it, Edith Head! I'm simply loving it!
