Yes, Edith Head was a true legend in Hollywood and I can remember seeing her on the Oscars as a young child and noticing how the stars reacted to her. She was an amazing force in the business.

I ADORED the costumes in "A Good Woman" with Helen Hunt and Scarlett Johannson. It takes place on the Amalfi coast of Italy in 1930 - lots of minor British royalty and wealthy Americans renting villas. Cool

The dresses - day and evening - are just stunning! I would wear any one of them today - just CLASSICS! And beautiful, simple, face framing chapeaux. Too chic!

Audrey Hepburn's costumes in Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady! I also loved the old '40's clothes from LA Confidential. And the gowns in Shakespeare in Love. Simply magnificent. And Auntie Mame. ::Sigh::

I love period films, if only for the clothes!

It's Edith Head, though Givenchy did Audrey Hepburn's clothes for many of her movies, including Funny Face.

My Lady A, so do I... sometimes, especially for the clothes!

Donna,
It's kind of ironic that the world was full of very rich people in the 1930s and their style was becoming more pared down and functional... yet somehow it still had style, as if they just couldn't help themselves. Even during the 1940s when the war raged and in Britain there was terrible deprivation, the clothes were still styled very carefully.

I have to admit that I love the films of the 1950s and 60s for the fashion. Tho' it's more for the women's wear which has more style I think than the menswear. You can look at the women's clothes and tell the period of the film.

I like the Givenchy gown Audrey wore to the party in Sabrina.

Also:

Everything Reese Witherspoon wore in Vanity Fair.

Everything Helena Bonham Carter wore in The Wings of the Dove.

Everything Diane Keaton wore in Annie Hall.

She was Edith Head. A true genius.
