The Queen of Seam: Edith Head in Hollywood

Repertory Series: A Year of Women in Cinema

Monday, December 25 – Sunday, December 31, 2017

Although women working in Hollywood have often been relegated to the more ‘feminine’ jobs of costume, make-up, and hairstyle, that doesn’t mean that their contributions are always overlooked. In the case of Edith Head, she was an indelible part of the star-making factory from the silent era all the way up until the 1980s and became one of the most famous big screen costumers of all time. Her design skills played a significant role in creating some of the most iconic and fashionable movie stars from Mae West to Barbara Stanwyck, Veronica Lake, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Natalie Wood, and beyond.
