A major portion of cinema history is being displayed in London right now with the Hollywood Costume exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum. With costumes and outfits from some of the movie industry's biggest films, the exhibit is a great learning experience to see just how much attention is required to make a good, believable movie.
Darth Vader, Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp, Scarlett O'Hara and Indiana Jones have all come under one London roof.
Not the actual characters, of course, but the outfits they made famous in some of Hollywood’s most beloved films. A new London exhibition has brought together more than 100 iconic costumes, from Chaplin’s tramp outfit to the world’s most famous ruby slippers.
The show, at the Victoria and Albert Museum, aims to tell the story of costume design and how it helps create believable characters.
