Edith Head

Highest Rated: 100% Sullivan's Travels (1941)

Lowest Rated: 13% The Oscar (1966)

Birthday: Oct 28, 1897

Birthplace: Searchlight, Nevada, USA

With 35 Academy Award nominations, eight-time Oscar winner Edith Head emerged from Hollywood's fitting rooms to become a household name. One of the film industry's pioneering professional women, she became a major American fashion force, designing for Vogue patterns and airlines as well. Her ability to shape each gown to a character or image made her as popular with film directors as with the glamour girls she dressed in both their private lives and screen roles. Yet the image she devoted the most work to was her own. Her friendly frankness led to regular appearances on Art Linkletter's daytime television show in the 1950s, offering fashion advice to audiences.
