Hollywood Costumes


Talking of London, wait untill Autumn to go ! Because Hollywood´s most memorable costumes is to go on display at V & A from October 20.

"This exhibition will bring together over 100 outfits worn by unforgettable cinema characters, from Dorothy's dress in the Wizard of Oz,  Scarlett O'Hara's velvet 'curtain' dress from Gone With the Wind, Holly Golightly's black Givenchy dress from Breakfast at Tiffany's to Darth Vader's cape."

The Exhibition is curated by Hollywood costume designer Deborah Nadool- man Landis, who explains :
"I didn't go looking for costumes, I went looking for characters. This is not a decorative show. There's plenty of glamour - Marilyn Monroe's dress from Some Like It Hot is jaw-dropping in its nakedness.
But it's not about the fabulosity, it's about what's inside." From The Telegraph.

I am looking foreward to that. Are You coming ?

BALLGOWNS



Dear readers; if you´re going to London this year, you have to take a look at this Exhibition.
In this 60th Jubilee year of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London has a promising Exhibition opening in May.

"From debutantes and royalty to charity balls and the red carpet, Ball- gowns: British glamour since 1950 charts 60 years of stylish evening wear". I am definitely going there to take a look at it.

"The exhibition highlights the styles, silhouettes and colours that have been perennial favourites for many years in Britain’s traditional social season of debutante parties, private balls, weddings, and charity events that for long has provided fashion designers with opportunities to create elaborate, tour- de-force eveningwear.
In more recent years, the ballroom has been replaced by the red carpet. Though the context has changed, the ballgown remains a staple in many designers’ collections and continues to serve as an expression of status, protocol, and taste, while simultaneously embodying elements of drama and fantasy".

From Amazon, where the book can be purchased.

DENIM PILLOWS


Maybe it is seen before, but I just wanted to share this idea with you.
My partner just did these two pillows of some old worn out jeans. The result turned out quite good I think. Are you into raw comfort like that ?

BOXES

These very decorative boxes were so nice looking and convenient to get your stuff sorted in a nice way.
I found them in Søstrene Grene, a Danish lifestyle-company with temptations from all over the world, but to very reasonable prices.



But also a big WELCOME to all new followers who joined my "Give Away". I´m delighted to see YOU here and I hope you will get inspiration from my crea- tive world of fashion.

"Stars en Dior"

Not long ago Chanel was publishing a fashionbook about "Northern Women in Chanel"  by Peter Farago and Ingela Klemetz-Farago, who also had an exhibition at Designmuseum Denmark in Copenhagen.


I didn´t see it myself, but the exhibition had mixed reviews. . . questioning if it just was a concept to promote Chanel, the photograpers and why northern women ? - missing the context.

Now Dior takes it further. "Stars en Dior" is an upcoming book about Dior dres- sing the Stars of Hollywood. . .


-Telling the story of Dior and featuring 250 photos of film stills, location shots, photographs and of course portraits of stars past and present in looks by the iconic designer and his successors.

Books for fashionistas and collectors, but also another way of getting  more publicity and valuable exposure, to keep up the interest I guess. . .

"Stars en dior" is published by Rizzoli and coming out in France this May and later on in other contries.
