Hollywood Costume exhibition at VMFA
We saw the exhibition last week and we are impressed with the collection! It is fascinating how the exhibition explores the central role of costume design in cinematic storytelling.
Have a look at the exhibition and see the clothes worn by your favorite characters in films such as The Wizard of Oz, The Birds, My Fair Lady, Superman, Titanic, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and The Dark Knight Rises.
