London’s Victoria and Albert Museum’s most popular exhibit ‘Hollywood Costume’ has finally arrived at its sole east coast venue in the US, ‘Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ in Richmond.
 
Scheduled to run through February 17, 2014, the exhibition aims to highlight the pivotal role played by costume designing in cinematic storytelling.  
 
Sourced from private collectors and archival collections of Californian studios, the exhibits include several iconic American movie costumes from a century of film-making.
 
The exhibition displays outfits worn in some of the most memorable films of all times, such as ‘The Wizard of Oz’, ‘The Birds’, ‘My Fair Lady’, ‘Titanic’, ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.
 
Among the main attractions of the event is an original Superman costume, donned by the late Christopher Reeve in ‘Superman IV: The Quest for Peace’.
 
Started as an autumn exhibit last year, the Victoria and Albert Museum’s ‘Hollywood Costume’ exhibition ended on January 27, 2013.
 
The cinematic event was a three-gallery journey from early Charlie Chaplin silent pictures to the motion capture costume design for ‘Avatar’ (Deborah L. Scott, Mayes C. Rubeo, 2010) and ‘John Carter’ (Mayes C. Rubeo, 2012). The exhibition spans a wide range of films including ‘Fight Club’, ‘The Addams Family’ and ‘Star Wars’.
