Edith Head

Edith Head (1897–1981) was a well-known costume designer for films.

In the They Might Be Giants song "She Thinks She's Edith Head," a reference is made to Edith Head and Helen Gurley Brown as "cultural figure[s] we don't know a lot about."

From the Costume Designers Guild Hall Of Fame:

Arguably the most famous costume designer in Hollywood history, Edith Head was also one of the most prolific, having costumed for over 500 films.
She employed her formidable talent and versatility designing everything from westerns to monster movies, intimate romances to Biblical spectacles. By 1976, Head had received a remarkable eight Academy Awards and a total of thirty-three Academy Award nominations.
