From recent releases to memorable classics, Hollywood movies have never been short on amazing, breathtaking costumes.
This fall, on Oct. 2, the groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume will be landing at the iconic Wilshire May Company Building (the future location of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures) to showcase some of the best costume designs from some of our favorite films. The exhibition will run until March 2, 2015.
"We are thrilled to bring this innovative exhibition to Los Angles," said Academy President Cheryl Boone in a press release. "Hollywood Costume invites visitors to see some of the most well-known costumes from their favorite movies and to explore the impact designers have in creating our most beloved characters."
There will be more than 150 costumes from 60 lenders, and the Academy will add more than 40 costumes to be on display. See Jared Leto's costume from Dallas Buyers Club and other costumes from The Hunger Games, The Great Gatsby, Django Unchained, Lee Daniels' The Butler, Man of Steel and American Hustle.
If you are more of a classic film aficionado, you'll get a kick out of the costumes from Hollywood's Golden Age, such as Charlie Chaplin's costume from The Tramp (1912) and Marlene Dietrich from Morocco (1930) and Angel (1937). You'll also appreciate the more modern film costumes, including designs from Mary Poppins (1964), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Titanic (1997).
But perhaps the cherry on top, the crème de la crème of movie costumes, will be the ORIGINAL ruby slippers from 1939's The Wizard of Oz!
This innovative exhibition's structure will take you on a non-chronological, four-gallery journey that tells the story of costume design. You won't just be viewing costumes, though; Hollywood Costume will also feature montages, animation, film clips and projections.
Whether you are a lover of fashion, film or both, this exhibition is one you do not want to miss!
