Elizabeth Taylor with Richard Burton, Academy Awards 1970. The dress: A deep blue-violet chiffon Edith Head gown with a plunging neckline and a ruffled, slit skirt. Oh, by the way, Elizabeth is wearing the Taylor-Burton diamond.
✶ Edith Head, minus her tinted glasses, in the gown she wore for the 1950 Oscars where she won best costumes for "Samson and Delilah" (1949). Edith received 35 nominations from the Academy (more than any other woman) and brought home 8 Oscars. ✶
Grace Kelly wears a silky negligee in a movie still from the 1954 murder-mystery, "Rear Window." Costume designer Edith Head recalled Kelly giggling upon spotting her reflection in the mirror. "Why, I look like a peach parfait!" she said.
