The Edith Head Room is named after the famous clothes designer for the movies who received eight Academy Awards. This is her bedroom suite and portrait that she had commissioned of herself. Edith Head owned this bedroom set and sold it at auction just before moving into the motion picture home and nine months later passing away from cancer. She has won more academy awards than any other person and was nominated for 35 Oscars.
