How to Dress for Success

Edith Head’s no-nonsense style guide from 1967, How to Dress for Success, is being reissued by V&A Publishing. Head was arguably Hollywood’s most famous and influential costume designer, responsible for the clothes in over a thousand films including Roman Holiday, The Birds and Sunset Boulevard.


Illustrated using Head’s own delightful line drawings, the book contains witty advice on life’s perennial problems such as exactly how to look younger and slimmer and just how to attract and keep a man. In a chic lilac cloth binding and priced at only £8.99, it offers invaluable inspiration for replicating that vintage Hollywood look.
