Foujita's distinctive look bore a resemblance to another noted 20th Century personality employed in the arts? Name this person.
HINT: She gave good costume.
The answer is after the JUMP.
If the inspiration for her look was indeed Tsuguharu Foujita, it would not be Edith Head's only questionable appropriation.
When Howard Greer interviewed her to work under him at Paramount, she admitted to presenting fraudulent examples of her work. He hired her anyway, which is but one of many amusing anecdotes he relates in his delightful memoir Designing Male, A Nebraska Farm Boy's Adventures in Hollywood and with the International Set.
Moreover, even though Head happily accepted an Oscar for her work on Sabrina, the conventional wisdom has long been that Hubert de Givenchy designed Audrey Hepburn's costumes for that film. Head’s protégé Jean-Pierre Dorléac, however, disputes that. He told the Los Angeles Times that Head showed him the first-fitting prototype for the famous black H-neckline dress that Hepburn wore in that film.
