The fashion icon who dressed Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn would have turned 116 today. By Amelia Pak-Harvey / October 28, 2013 Edith Head, the costume designer behind countless Hollywood hits, is honored by a Google Doodle today on what would have been her 116th birthday. Google Weekly Digital Edition Edith Head explains how she designed Audrey Hepburn's character in "Roman Holiday." The critically acclaimed costume designer dominated Hollywood's fashion sets in the 20th century, winning a whopping eight Academy Awards the most for any woman. Head is most notably recognized for dressing Audrey Hepburn in the film that threw her into the spotlight "Roman Holiday." The story of a wealthy princess longing for a normal life required both ball gowns and plain clothing, a feat that won Head best costume design for a black-and-white film in 1954. "You see, she's supposed to be a princess disguised as an ordinary girl on the streets of Rome. So we made her a simple costume, so she wouldn't look different," Head says about dressing Hepburn in the video above. RECOMMENDED: Halloween Costumes: 5 DIY materials that won't break the budget Head nabbed the same Academy Award for her designs in "Sabrina,"a year later,although prominent French designer Hubert de Givenchy also contributed a good deal to Hepburn's wardrobe. Perhaps Head's greatest achievement is the redirected one that excited wistful teenage girls in the 1950s: Elizabeth Taylor 's dress in "A Place in the Sun."The knockout strapless bouffant gown, laced with daisies, sparked a prom fashion trend. Head rose to the top without much traditional training. She miraculously landed a job as an assistant to Paramount 's head designer Howard Greer after showing him drawings that were not even her own she used sketches donated by her peers at Chouinard Art Institute. She later worked as assistant designer under Travis Banton, and when Banton resigned, Head finally had her time to shine. Even before clothing Hepburn and Taylor, Head shared a few Oscars with other designers: one for the Biblical dress style in the 1949 Paramount film "Samson and Delilah," and another for "All About Eve," in which icon Bette Davis was portrayed as a classy, older Broadway star (Davis would later deliver the eulogy at Head's funeral). Head maintained a strong relationship with Alfred Hitchcock , dressing celebrities such as Grace Kelly in his films. <br>Source:

This post has been corrected. Please see note at bottom of details. Nightlife iconoclast Simon Hammerstein has come to Los Angeles to act as the first artistic director of a new club in West Hollywood called DBA. The club is located in the former Voyeur space and will be as much a performance space and art gallery as it will be a dance club and drinking den. For the project, Hammerstein collaborated with the club's owners, Beau Laughlin and Michael Jay of the L.A.-based hospitality group Cardiff Giant, which also operates the Hudson and the Churchill, among others. The constant evolution of the club is why it's called DBA, which is short for "Doing Business As." Like a seasonal theater or an art gallery, the space will change radically every few months or so, as will the performances. Each new incarnation of the club will be curated by someone new. <br>Source:,0,4048958.story

Spielberg co-hosted the event, but ended up endorsing Clinton, but Katzenberg and Geffen backed Obama. It was Geffen who caused an early stir between the Clinton and Obama campaigns when he gave an interview to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd in which he said characterized the Clintons as liars. But this time around, Katzenberg is lining up early behind a potential Clinton candidacy, as are other industry figures. Katzenberg already has pledged to once again help the SuperPAC Priorities USA, which backed Obama in 2012 with his early seed money, if it shifts to support a Hillary Clinton candidacy. Geffen, too, has softened to the idea. Asked recently by Fortune magazine whether he would support her candidacy, he answered, Absolutely. Katzenberg and Spielbergs political consultant, Andy Spahn, also advises and raises money for the International Medical Medical Corps, which is giving Clinton an award that evening. As was shown in 2008, early donor support means much more to a campaign than those who wait for the trend lines toward the end. But theres also a sense that 2016 will be no different when it comes to raising record amounts for a presidential bid, with just as much reliance on big-dollar bundlers. <br>Source:
