Edith Head : The Life and Times of Hollywood's Celebrated Costume Designer
David ChierichettiISBN: 0060567406;
Book Description Edith Head is widely considered the most important figure in the history of Hollywood costume design. Her career spanned nearly half a century and included such classic films as Rear Window and Sunset Boulevard . Her private life and professional achievements have been the subject of speculation since she rose to the top in the late 1940s. Ruthlessly competitive and intensely secretive, Head had few close friends and many detractors. Her longtime friend, protege,and confidant David Chierichetti offers a privileged glimpse into the personality behind the famously impenetrable "schoolmarm" facade and a comprehensive account of her creative process. With more than 150 images -- including family snapshots, sketches, and studio portraits of the stars and roles she helped to create, Edith Head is a fresh and vital portrait of the designer, as well as of the era she epitomizes.
