Best Costume Design

Edith-Head-with-her-eight-Oscars

Edith Head won 8 Academy Awards for Best Costume Design and was nominated 35 times.

She won Best Costume Design for one of my favorite movies, Sabrina (the one with Audrey Hepburn, of course). Here are my three favorite looks from the movie:

sabrina, audrey hepburn, black and white embroidered dress

 

sabrina, audrey hepburn, black dress

 

sabrina, audrey helpburn, black dress, poodle

It’s rumored that Givenchy designed these outfits for Audrey to wear in the movie and Edith took credit for them. I would hate to think that’s true. Here’s a link to an interesting article from the L.A. Times in 2010 in her defense: http://articles.latimes.com/2010/oct/24/image/la-ig-edithredux-20101024.

And here’s an article from Vanity Fair in 2014 in support of Givenchy: http://www.vanityfair.com/style/2014/02/audrey-hepburn-givenchy-style.
