Google Doodle Dresses UP

Edith Head's birthday....wow. This showed up on Google today. My husband thought he had been hacked. Of course he has no idea who she is. You do, huh?
(Think costumes from Rear Window, Sabrina, Vertigo, To Catch a Thief, Vertigo to name a few.)

"Anyone who has taken fashion inspiration from Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Wood, or Elizabeth Taylor’s on-screen style may actually have Edith Head to thank. 

The 20th century costume designer created the iconic wardrobes of movies ranging from Hepburn’s “Sabrina” to Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” over a half-century long career that earned her critical acclaim as well as a hand in designing a page in fashion history books. Several of her most famous designs, as well as her austere personal style, are captured online today through a Google Doodle in honor of the 116th anniversary of her birth."
