One of the most iconic crew members from Hollywood's golden age is the focus of a new standout exhibition at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Edith Head—the eight-time Academy Award winning costume designer who worked with a who's who list of stars including Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, John Wayne, and Elvis Presley—has seventy of her career costume work on display in the exhibit Edith Head: Hollywood's Costume Designer, which is open at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art now through September 29. This is an exhibit years in the making, and in no small part comes to fruition thanks to the work guest curator Catherine Shotick. Shotick joins the show to talk about costuming as an artform, the evolution of Head's role in the film industry over time, and the work that went into developing this intricate overview of an iconic designer.

Also on this week's episode, the editors discuss the go-to colors in their wardrobes, and podvents takes us to a free showing of an essential Oklahoma classic. You won't want to miss it.
