LONDON: Hollywood Costume

Do you know what you’re going to be for Halloween? No? If you’re in London, perhaps a lavish exhibition of some of the most famous costumes in cinematic history will inspire you! From now until January 27th, the glorious V&A presents ‘Hollywood Costume’, an exploration of how costumes contribute to movie magic. ‘Hollywood Costume’ features over 100 insanely iconic looks from characters such as Indiana Jones, Scarlett O’Hara, Travis Bickle, Captain Jack Sparrow, Holly Golightly, Harry Potter, Spider-man, Darth Vader, and Dorothy Gale (complete with the original Ruby Slippers!). Most of the items on display have never been seen outside of California, making this tricked out exhibit even more of a treat. xx Ashley Churchill
