Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Grace Kelly. Her style and elegance are so inspirational to me. I re-watch her films constantly and just dream of having her wardrobe. Some of you may not know but there was a very brilliant woman responsible for many of the gorgeous Hollywood Starlets wardrobes that we love so dearly. Hedy Lamar, Barbara Stanwyck, Ginger Rogers, Sophia Loren, Ingrid Bergman, Natalie Wood, Loretta Young and about 25 more were all dressed by Edith Head. She had a style that she never deterred from, Hitchcock took a liking to her designs and she was then designing clothing for almost all his female leads. Head went onto win 8 Academy Awards for her costume design.
Here are my favorite looks she has done for my favorite, Grace Kelly.
