Edith Head is one of the most renown costume designers in Hollywood history. I love her sketches. She definitely has a specific style to her sketches and you can tell in the images below. One random fact was that she admitted to borrowing a student's sketch for a job interview as a sketch artist. Crazy right? 

Do you guys recognize this one? It's the opening dress of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" with Audrey Hepburn.


This one was for Grace Kelly in Alfred Hitchcock's "To Catch A Thief." 


This one is for Mae West in "Myra Brekenridge." She definitely used glitter tastefully. 


This one was for Dorthy Lamour in "Road to Bali." Look at the beautiful detailing on her headpiece, necklace and armband. 


This was for Marilyn Maxwell "Rock-A-Bye Baby." Amazing detail once again for the shimmery glitter effect without the use of real glitter. 


This one was her sketch for Debbie Reynolds in "Pleasure of His Company."


I'm almost positive Edna Mode from "The Incredibles," was based off of Edith Head. :P


Anyway, hope you guys are having an amazing week. For those of you who work normal work days, YAY, it's Friday. 

Love,
Maggie S.
