Blown away by how interactive the Hollywood Costume displays were – (they had screens with quotes from the movie’s costume designer in script form), I was in heaven, soaking up every piece of information I possibly could. There were sooo many, but I wanted to share my favorites with you 🙂
The exhibition opened with displaying the 8 Oscars of costume designer, Edith Head, who has worked with Alfred Hitchcock and was the first female Chief Designer at Paramount Pictures.
What also had me in an absolute jaw-dropped daze was the Addam’s Family section. ❤ I read that Pubert Addams was played by two baby girls in Addams Family Values. hehe
With all the digital capabilities of today, it’s hard to imagine how films were created without it. The original Super Man had 20 different costumes made out of a variety of materials in order to assist with effects like flying.
Our favorite actress, Meryl Streep, had an entire section devoted to her, with 3 large screens playing interviews about her wardrobe in different films. Costumes from Devil Wears Prada were missing..but that’s okay.
And last but not least…the iconic ruby slippers of Dorothy were displayed. What a magical piece of art. To see shoes that are nearly a century..in person..was a dream come true!! They were originally white silk, then dyed red and each embellished with 2,300 red sequins ❤ Ahhhh!!!
Thank you Academy!!! Thank you for allowing the audience to walk amongst beautiful pieces of art and take in film history.
