20th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design
February 14-April 28, 2012
10:00 am to 5:00 pm
FREE and open to the public.
We are delighted to announce that the 20th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition is now open to the public! Check your calendar and plan a visit to see over 100 costumes from 20 films released in 2011. On exhibit are costumes from Anonymous, The Artist, Hugo, Jane Eyre, W.E., The Help, Immortals, My Week With Marilyn and many other films. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this much-anticipated annual event, we are also exhibiting selected costumes worn by stars of the silver screen. Don't miss the green velvet bonnet Adrian designed for Pride and Prejudice (1940), Fred Astaire's tap shoes, Marlene Dietrich's 1950s Delman evening shoes, or Mae West's corset! These are only some of the classic costumes currently on exhibit at the FIDM Museum.
Until you have a chance to see the exhibition in person, take a sneak peek (after the jump) at the 2012 Academy Award® nominees for Best Costume Design. Enjoy!
