Award-Winning Costume Designer. Known for creating lavish stage and screen attire that required large budgets, she had a career of more than 40 years during which she captured three Tony Awards and an Oscar. Educated at the American School of Athens and at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago; having met Geraldine Page in Greece, she broke into Broadway in 1959 when she designed her outfits for Tennessee Williams' "Sweet Bird of Youth". Over the years she earned more than 30 credits on The Great White Way and was nominated for the Tony Award 15 times, winning for "Annie" (1977), 1980's "Barnum", and the 1984 "La Cage aux Folles". For Hollywood she produced the garb for around 15 films including 1979's "The Rose", "Annie" (1982), and the 1984 comedy "Ghostbusters"; she garnered a 1975 Academy Award for the 1974 screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel "The Great Gatsby". Aldredge was also nominated for, and won, multiple Drama Desk Awards and in 2002 received the Irene Sharaff Lifetime Achievement Award. Her final work was a 2006 Broadway revival of "A Chorus Line". (bio by: Bob Hufford)
