V&A HOLLYWOOD COSTUME EXHIBITION

I recently went to London and visited the V&A to see the current Hollywood Costume exhibition. The exhibit included costume design from some of most well known movies in the Industry. Some of my favourites included Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz's red slippers and Audrey Hepburn's little black dress which was featured in Breakfast at Tiffany's. There are over 100 film costumes displayed in the exhibition and it is definitely worth a visit to see costumes from all genres of film. 
I couldn't take any photography inside the exhibition, but I liked these fun images on the Hollywood Costume gift shop windows displaying the 'Goodies' and 'Baddies' of the film world. The collection fills three galleries and is totally worth the price of a ticket. The exhibition was really busy, so it seems like it's been a hit with people of all ages, film lovers and fashionista's alike. There was something for everyone, from films which have been released this year like Keira Knightley's Anna Karenina to Titanic, Avatar and Die Hard.
The Exhibition is on until the 27th of January 2013 and you can buy the gorgeous coffee table book, which shows the costumes and the work that goes on behind them in further detail here. I would really recommend a trip!
