Theoni V. Aldredge, an award-winning costume designer who created memorable outfits for more than 300 stage and film projects, including Gypsy, A Chorus Line, Dreamgirls and 42nd Street, died Friday at a hospice in Connecticut at the age of 78. She is survived by her husband, actor Tom Aldredge.

She won three Tonys for Annie, Barnum and La Cage aux Folles and an Oscar in 1975 for designing costumes for The Great Gatsby, starring Robert Redford.

Aldredge, known for her ability to go from Las Vegas stage shows to opera, and to create everything from Elizabethan period costumes to contemporary street fashion, was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame.
She was the principal designer for Joseph Papp‘s New York Shakespeare Festival for many years.
