Edith Head’s work is chic, cool, glamourous and powerful. You name a legendary Hollywood beauty (especially post-war) — Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Ingrid Bergman — and you’ll find that Edith Head designed clothes for her. Some of the most iconic Hollywood looks — Kim Novak in Vertigo, Grace Kelly in Rear Window, Mae West in She Done Him Wrong — are Edith Head’s work. It wasn’t just that she understood colour and black and white, film and form, she managed to make women look simultaneously classy and sizzlingly sexy.
To have such impact in a world dominated by men, Head had to not only be more talented than anyone else, but more driven, more focused and harder working. Does that sound Scorpionic to you?
Here is her chart without a birth time sadly, but just look at the stellium across Libra (style and fashion sense) and Scorpio (drive and focus). The positions of Jupiter and Saturn are interesting too… both at zero degrees, sandwiching the stellium.
It’s her birthday today. I expect she’s designing a costume for St Peter.
