A nostalgic tour-cum-exhibition displaying some of the choicest pieces of clothing and props from popular Hollywood films and Broadway performances is going on at Brisbane’s famous playhouse, theatre and museum Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).
 
Titled as ‘All Dressed Up: From Broadway to Hollywood’, the ongoing vintage costume exhibition will run till April 2013.
 
Curated by Australian advocate Nicholas Inglis, who also works as an usher in QPAC, the 36-piece collection serves as a visual treat for die-hard fans of Hollywood classics and art collectors.
 
The delightful costume memorabilia, collected from various auction events, features a range of dresses worn by famous actors and actresses like Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, Eddie Murphy, Peter Allen and Robin Williams.
 
The highlights of the exhibition include Samantha Eggar’s off-white see-through taffeta dress detailed with cloth flower accents from 1967’s movie Doctor Dolittle and a gold and white gown worn by Rhonda Fleming in 1949’s film ‘A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court’.
