In 1974 she claimed her final Oscar win for her work with the clothes in the film The Sting.
Her classic designs have appeared in several hit films such as Funny Face, To Catch A Thief, and The Birds.
She is best known for her work with Alfred Hitchcock, after becoming one of the film-makers favourite designers during production of The Man Who Knew Too Much.
After achieving her degrees in French and Romance Languages, Edith moved into teaching. However, in 1924 the designer became a part of Paramount Pictures where she began her work with costumes on silent films like The Wanderer.
She left Paramount after 43 years with the company, and moved to Universal. Some put this down to Hitchcock's move to the same company a few years earlier.
Her death was remembered by many and her star remains on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
