After 5 years of preparation the V&A will showcase over 100 iconic costumes from some of the most popular films of the past century.

Most costumes have never been on public display and have come out of the archives especially for this exhibition. Undoubtedly the highlight will be the white halter neck dress worn by Marilyn Monroe from one of the most iconic images in film.

The Hollywood Costume exhibition is now open at V&A London until 27th Jan 2013.

Keira Knightley, Atonement (2007)

Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961)
