Some other things...

Good day!

First, on a sad note...goodbye.

On a happier note, Happy Birthday!!! I'm an admirer of this talented lady, as well as others like Adrian and Orry-Kelly I've watched many movies that these fantastic folks have done the costume designing for and almost always marvelled at how gorgeous and glamerous the movie stars looked. For a time, it seemed that if your costuming wasn't done by one of these people, your film just wasn't a film. Kind of like what I like to call the Henry Mancini Syndrome (my own term, BTW). If your movie wasn't scored by the great Henry Mancini, you might as well not bother making the movie! *lol*

Thanks to Wikipedia and Google for all of my links - loving Google's splashpage today, some great sketches of some of Ms. Head's designs.

Please forgive me if I'm gushing a little. I realise that there are so many other talented people out there in costume design land in those eras that I'm not mentioning at all, and I hope you can forgive me for that.

More information later on the quick trip to the Creativ Fest Friday night. I even managed to remember to take a pic - really, I have GOT to get into this blogging thing a little more. I'm still learning, so thank you for your patience with me so far... :)

Have a terrific day!

  1. Now, no doubt my love of vintage set the ground work for the following statement, but I really do believe that today's Google logo is my favourite of all time. I've long hoped they'd honour Edith and to see that they (finally) did today made my heart a happy camper. I wish there was a way to set it the Google logo I saw for the rest of time (or at least a good, long while).

    *PS* Thank you very much for your terrific comment on my vintage plaid vest outfit post today. I'm sorry that emerald just doesn't jive with your colouring. I've got a few hues (fuschia, some purples, and most oranges spring to mind on that front) like that as well.
