STYLE: The Best Movie Costume Design: Ode to Edith Head

We are huge fans of Edith Head, costume designer extraordinaire.  She won 8 Oscars.  She was nominated 35 times.  Her vision was incredible.  Here is a list of our favorite movies that she designed costumes for, (it’s clear she and Audrey had a special relationship).
