Marilyn Monroe’s iconic white dress and other classic Hollywood costumes are coming to the V&A!

As well as the exhibit of Chanel’s Little Black Jacket, which is coming to London on October 12th, the Victoria and Albert Museum is opening an exhibition dedicated to some of Hollywood’s most iconic costumes.

As Fashion’s Night Out and London Fashion Week will be well and truly over by then, we’re glad to have all these distractions to fill the void!

Some of the items on display include Marilyn Monroe’s white dress from The Seven Year Itch, the black dress Audrey Hepburn famously wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, as well as Judy Garland’s cute blue gingham dress from The Wizard of Oz, among others.

“The design of costumes for films is often take for granted or misunderstood,” said Sir Christopher Frayling, one of the curators. “This exhibition presents an ideal opportunity to set the record straight and will do so in a most spectacular way.”

The exhibit runs from October 20th until January 27th, so plenty of time to absorb the greatness on more than one occasion! Who’s going?
