Who knew?

This funny looking lady


made some seriously beautiful dresses...


...and some of the most memorable costumes in hollywood.



 Roman Holiday


Rear Window



The King and I


This dress from West Side Story really got me as a kid.



This dress from Sweet Charity really got my kid Mayumi.


The scene that inspired the daughter that inspired the mom 
that inspired the first ever Dizzy Dress. Jump to 3:36 mark.



Thanks Edith Head, costume designer extraordinaire. 
1897-1981
