Today's Google Doodle is Edith Head

How fabulous!

I think she was overrated. And she snuck her way into getting hired, she wasn't hired on her own merits.

Ga-roovy baby!

Today's Google Doodle with gowns by Adrian

by Edna Molereply 310/28/2013

Amen, R1. She was a bore. She was great at self-promotion but her designs are middle of the road.

Now HOW MANY Oscars were cluttering up her office?

by Edna Molereply 510/28/2013

We had a family friend who was designing at Universal during the 1960s. He had a design meeting and could not find his renderings anywhere. On a hunch he checked Edith's office and they were hidden under her couch. Even at that point in her life, she was terrified that someone might be better than she was.

SJP was made to play her in a biopic.

Edit Head, she gave good costume.

Edna MOLE?

by Edna Molereply 910/28/2013

No, it's EDITH HEAD GAVE GOOD GOWN, not 'costume'.

by Edna Molereply 1010/28/2013

I prefer Travis Banton and Walter Plunkett

Edith Head and Coco Chanel loved their dancing poodles....

Any relation to Murray?

by Edna Molereply 1310/28/2013

And here's to all the people whose ideas she took credit for, and nabbed those Oscars for.

I'm no great fan of Edith's but the story goes that when Audrey Hepburn was cast in Sabrina (only her 2nd film, I think), she asked her chum Hubert de Givenchy to design a couple of gowns for her that she could wear in the film.

Edith was Paramount's contractual resident costume designer and Sabrina had already been assigned by the studio to her to design.

So one could say Edith was actually very gracious to allow Audrey to wear Givenchy's gowns. There was contractually no requirement to credit Givenchy with his designs.

And Givenchy's gowns are the only memorable costumes in that film, R15.

by Edna Molereply 1710/28/2013

r15, r17 That embroidered, "farthingaled" dress she wore to the big party was a stunner. I wonder what became of it?

by Edna Molereply 1810/28/2013

Should I recognize any of the dresses in the doodle?

by Edna Molereply 1910/28/2013

Google Doodles you'll never see.

No dear, it's "Edith Head gives good wardrobe".

Why did they doodle on Edith's head?

by Edna Molereply 2410/28/2013

But even Bette's Margo Channing dress was originally designed by Edith with a square neckline to sit firmly up on the shoulders.

It was Bette who came into the first fitting and yanked it down around her biceps and really gave the dress the character it's famous for.

I always wondered if that dress was actually designed for Claudette Colbert, who was originally cast as Margo. And if Claudette would have had the nerve to alter the neckline as Bette had.

by Edna Molereply 2510/28/2013

R25, a dress with a neckine wouldn't have been designed for Claudette Colbert in that she didn't have a neck.

by Edna Molereply 2610/28/2013

But Noel dear at r26, a long square neckline would have lengthened Claudette's vestigial neck.

R23, does Bette have her hand on Baxter's boobie
