Ryan Keely says: "Edith Head has won more Academy Awards than any woman ever. In 1924, she started working as a costume designer at Paramount and continued her career until 1976. Her work is spectacular. She has influenced so many women over so many decades. She dressed Audrey Hepburn, Mae West, Veronica Lake, Ginger Rogers, Ingrid Bergman, Betty Davis, Liz Taylor, the list goes on!
She was known for not forcing the actresses into something that she thought would look good. She'd always give the actress a couple of choices because she realized that performers wanted to feel involved in the choices she made. Edith Head influenced fashion worldwide, and she helped actors take their performances to the next level, leaving an indelible mark on cinema."
