 Discover the true story of how a shy
miner’s daughter became one of the most legendary costume designers in
Hollywood in this inspiring nonfiction picture book biography.

As a child in the small mining town of Searchlight, Nevada, Edith Head had few
friends and spent most of her time dressing up her toys and pets and even wild
animals using fabric scraps. She always knew she wanted to move somewhere full
of people and excitement. She set her sights on Hollywood and talked her way
into a job sketching costumes for a movie studio.

Did she know how to draw or sew costumes? No. But that didn’t stop her!

Edith taught herself and tirelessly worked her way up until she was dressing
some of the biggest stars of the day, from Audrey Hepburn to Grace Kelly to
Ginger Rogers. She became the first woman to head a major Hollywood movie
studio costume department and went on to win eight Academy Awards for best
costume design—and she defined the style of an era.
