Silk, Lace and Taffeta

After dance class today, my girlfriends and I made a trip downtown for the new museum exhibit of film costumes. Many of the costumes (okay, all of them) were time period pieces which made the experience all the more interesting! Take a look and see if you recognize any of these works of art!

Phantom of the Opera – Emmy Rossum

Casanova – Heath Ledger

The Duchess – Keira Knightley

Pirates of the Caribbean – Johnny Depp

Portrait of a Lady – Nicole Kidman

Sherlock Holmes – Robert Downey Jr.

Sherlock Holmes – Jude Law

Whoever can tell me the movie and actress who wore this dress wins (because I don’t remember!)!

After seeing these dresses and suits up close, I have a newfound appreciation for costume makers and designers.
