This three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer got her start working on WPA projects and as a Disney artist in the 1930s. Her fashion career began as a designer at I. Magnin's, where she was spotted by director Victor Fleming. Hired as a sketch artist for "Joan of Arc" (1948), Jeakins soon replaced costume designer Karinska and won an Oscar--the first awarded to a costume designer--for her medieval designs.
