Happy Birthday Edith Head

"A designer is only as good as the star who wears her clothes" ~ Edith Head
One of her most iconic sketches for the film A Place in the Sun, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift.
Costume designer at work. I love this fabric, I wonder what film she was working on here.
Last but not least, her sketch for Sabrina. Every girl dreams of owning a dress like this one day. 

Edith Head is one of the most recognized and beloved costume designers who was active during "the Golden age of Hollywood", she was nominated for 35 academy awards and won eight for films like A Place in the Sun, All About Eve, Roman Holiday and Sabrina to name a few. Today, Edith Head would have been 115 years old, Happy Birthday to her and her legacy.

I am crazy over this photo shoot that is featured in the October issue of Dazed and Confused magazine. It was photographed by Pierre Dabusschere. Such a genius. There is so much rhythm and emotion in these photographs. I wonder if some of these were taken under water?
