I have always loved Alfred Hitchcock movies because I grew up watching his films with my parents. I was always so inspired by the costumes featured in the movie. I have rounded up Alfred Hitchock’s leading ladies and their favorite perfumes.
Hitchcock was born on August 13, 1899, and passed away on April 29, 1980, was an English film director and producer. He is one of the most influential and extensively studied filmmakers in the history of cinema. Known as the “Master of Suspense“, he directed over 50 feature films in a career spanning six decades, becoming as well known as any of his actor’s thanks to his many interviews, his cameo roles in most of his films, and his hosting and producing of the television anthology Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955–1965). His films garnered a total of 46 Oscar nominations and six wins.
Edith Head was born on October 28, 1897, and passed away on October 24, 1981, was an American costume designer who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design between 1949 and 1973.
Born and raised in California, Head started her career as a Spanish teacher but was interested in design. After studying at the Chouinard Art School in Los Angeles, Head was hired as a costume sketch artist at Paramount Pictures in 1923. She won acclaim for her design of Dorothy Lamour’s trademark sarong in the 1936 film The Jungle Princess. She became a household name after the Academy Award for Best Costume Design was created in 1948. Head was considered exceptional for her close working relationships with her subjects, with whom she consulted extensively; these included virtually every top female star in Hollywood.
Head worked at Paramount for 44 years. In 1967, the company declined to renew her contract, and she was invited by Alfred Hitchcock to join Universal Pictures. There she earned her eighth and final Academy Award for her work on The Sting in 1973.
