The work of legendary Hollywood costume designer Edith Head can be seen in classic movies such as Roman Holiday, To Catch A Thief and Funny Face, work by the likes of Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and others. With more than eight Academy Awards and 35 nominations under her belt, it’s no wonder Head inspired actress, writer and artistic director Susan Claassen to pen a one-woman play in her honor. In December, Claassen will bring A Conversation With Edith Head to St. Louis. Claassen spoke with Ladue News about creating the show and what it’s like to portray the great Ms. Head.

In fact, next to the bridal gown, it seems that more time is spent discussing and dissecting the pros and cons of floral arrangements than just about any other aspect of a wedding. Experts say the pretty peony is the most popular wedding flower, but lush 'country garden' arrangements, including hydrangeas, ranunculus and garden roses are coming into vogue.
At the Campbell House Museum, a collection of historic wedding gowns showcasing the meticulous ornamentation and painstaking detail found in attire from decades past currently is on exhibit.

Taken by Jessica's confident personality—and her blue eyes—Ian Kirksey hired her that very day, and a workplace romance soon blossomed.
Every detail—from the invitation return address label to the post-celebration honeymoon suite—has been accounted for, but how are you going to get to your wedding? Those stilettos were barely made for walking, let alone hitchhiking.
