Hello, I'm over here in Lala land, home of Hollywood movies and glamour right now. As a fashion fan, my visit to the West Coast coincided with the annual FIDM exhibit of movie costumes.
This annual exhibit of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising showcases the key costumes from this year's Academy Award nominees for costume design (Les Miserables, Snow White & the Huntsman, Mirror Mirror, Anna Karenina, Lincoln, etc.)
The 21st edition of this yearly tradition also includes costumes from blockbuster The Avengers, the controversial Django Unchained, James Bond film Skyfall and last year's Oscar award winner, The Artist.
As I have mentioned before, some of my all time heroes in fashion inspiration are costume designers like Colleen Atwood, and it is a huge treat to be able to see their work up close in an exhibit like this.
If you're in town, the show runs until April 27th, 2013. Come out and experience the screen glamour!
