Edith Head, American costume designer who won eight Academy Awards, more than any other woman in history would have been a 116 years old today.

She had studied art at the Otis Art Institute and the Chouinard School.

She became Head Designer at Paramount in 1938, and was attached to virtually every prestige production there over the next thirty years.

Head frequently averaged 35 film projects a year. She designed for such huge names as Alfred Hitchcock, Elizabeth Taylor, Jerry Lewis, Gary Cooper and Bing Crosby.

In 1947, the Best Costume Design Oscar was introduced, and Head was eventually nominated for a total of 40 Academy Awards.

An amazing talent and a true idol in the fashion industry.

Happy Birthday
