“There’s nothing like a row of Oscars® for putting the fear of God into an actress who thinks she knows everything about dress designing.”
-Edith Head

A Conversation with Edith Head is a feast of delicious behind-the-scenes stories about Hollywood’s greatest stars that provides an intimate portrait of Hollywood’s legendary costume designer. In her six decades of costume design, Edith Head worked on more than eleven hundred films; dressed the greatest stars of Hollywood; received 35 Academy Award® nominations, and won an unprecedented eight Oscars®. Young fans of Pixar’s The Incredibles will recognized the superhero outfitter Edna Mode as an affectionate tribute to the legendary Hollywood costume designer.
