Edith Head (1897-1981), a doyenne of motion-picture costume, was famous for her remarkable career that spanned fifty years and earned her eight Academy Awards, more Oscars than any other woman has won. She was responsible for some of the best-known Hollywood fashion images of her day, with her costumes being worn by the most glamorous and famous actresses in films. Recently, Edith Head's likeness inspired the beloved Pixar character Edna Mode in The Incredibles.

"You can do anything you want in life if you dress for it," says Edith Head in How to Dress for Success. Would you like to look younger, prettier, slimmer? Would you like to attract a new man and hold on to the current one? Would you like to get a better job and earn more money? Then this is your book. Edith Head (1897-1981) dressed stars from Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor to Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn. This reprint of Head's 1967 tome serves as a timeless reference to looking your best. Head offers no-nonsense, and often hilarious, fashion advice. Illustrated with Head's original black-and-white line drawings and packaged with a chic cloth cover, this pocket-size guide is packed with smart tips on how to accessorize, dress for all occasions, and develop your own personal style.

Praise for How to Dress for Success:

"While much of Head's advice seems from a bygone culture (whatever happened to hostess pajamas?), her basic ideas are timeless. If you are willing to follow her occasionally rigid prescriptions, you will look good." 
-The Wall Street Journal

"The advice is nearly half a century old but still right as rain . . . The circa-1967 tome has been reprinted by book publisher Abrams in a snazzy, lavender cloth-bound cover that matches the book's snappy but ladylike tone." 
-The Los Angeles Times

"Legendary costume designer Edith Head dressed everyone from Audrey Hepburn to the recently departed Elizabeth Taylor in her heyday, and the sartorial wisdom she picked up along the way still has surprising resonance decades after the Mad Men era. The recent re-release of her style book, How to Dress for Success, is full of amazing advice that's as useful in 2011 as it was when it was first published in 1967."
