Hollywood Costume Exhibition

I am very excited I have recently been to the Hollywood Costume exhibition at the V&A, which was definitely worth it`s money. Classic costumes such as Batman, Superman, The Terminator and not to mention Cat Woman were featured in this incredible exhibition.
What was amazing was the whole sections devoted to film such as a Meryl Streep whose costumes from Mamma Mia and The Iron Lady showed how different an actor or actress could look in different roles!
There was a whole film on how the costume jewellery and pinball suits in Avatar worked. Which was really interesting since every piece of jewellery in Avatar was made by a whole team of jewellery designers.
In whole, looking back on the experience seeing the costume drama costumes` had to be the best part. It was fascinating to see a whole array of dresses which had been made even in the 40s and 50s in  perfect condition!  Pearls had been embedded into long laced trains and even ships were balancing on the tops of towering wigs from Antoinette.
It was even better than the Ballgowns Exhibition last year.
Highly recommended but get your tickets soon !
