In addition to blogging here at Indie Fixx, I also write for other publications. I recently wrote a piece for a series on historical fashion icons at Vintage Fashion London about Edith Head. If you aren’t familiar with her, Edith Head is probably the most well-known and iconic costumer in the world of Hollywoodfilm. Her career spanned 58 years and she dressed everyone–Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Robert Redford, Steve Martin, Elizabeth Taylor, Ingrid Bergman, and many more.
I didn’t quite get searching for Edith Head pics out of my system by writing my article, so I thought I’d share some more here.
