Who could forget this dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore, elaborate neckpiece and all, in Shakespeare in Love? The film won seven Academy Awards, including Best Costume Design for Sandy Powell.
Spooky and slinky, Anjelica Huston's turn as Morticia, as well as the outfits of the rest of the Addams Family, are in the exhibit.
Among the powerful heroes depicted are Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow, Mel Gibson’s Braveheart and Christopher Reeve’s Superman.
The exhibit includes a video in which Meryl Streep talks about how important costumes are in developing a character. Here, Baroness von Blixen’s traveling ensemble from Out of Africa.
In 2013, Jared Leto lost 30 pounds to play Rayon, an HIV+ transgender woman, in Dallas Buyers Club; he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Rayon's fur-jacket-and-dress outfit is in the show.
While the show is made up mostly of women’s costumes, the menswear is iconic. The latest James Bond’s tuxedo, Han Solo’s vest and Dick Tracy’s suit are all part of the mix.
Everyone may be talking about Denzel in The Enforcer and Ben in Gone Girl. But the latest buzz-worthy film appearances aren’t at the multiplex. They’re not even human. They’re part of an ensemble of movie costumes in an exhibit called Hollywood Costume.
Just opened inside the former Wilshire May Company Building (home to the future Academy Awards museum), the sprawling exhibit includes more than 150 of cinema’s most memorable outfits, from the well-worn khakis Harrison Ford sported as Indiana Jones to the feathered extravaganza Nicole Kidman sashayed around in at the Moulin Rouge.
The show is up through March 2, perfectly timed to take friends and family visiting during the holiday season for a memorable, information-packed, only-in-L.A. spectacle. In fact, it’s so interesting, with lots of behind-the-scenes displays explaining the costuming process, that you’ll want to go more than once. Here’s a peek at what you get to see up close and personal.
Hollywood Costume, 6067 Wilshire Blvd.; 310-247-3049 or oscars.org
