Guess what I saw today? The V&A’s Hollywood Costume Exhibition!
Red dress photo stolen from here.
All the other photos are courtesy of these folks here.
I’m watching Elizabeth: The Golden Age while tacking a hem in my chemise when I noticed that the skirt on Mary’s brocade gown was very familiar!
“Probably the earliest depiction of the Spanish verdugada. Pedro García de Benabarre, Salome from the St John Retable, Catalonia, 1470—80.”
Does it seem similar to anyone else or just me?
One of my classmates just posted this link in our class facebook group so of course I had to pass it on to the costume enthusiasts here!!!!
The auction is on December 3rd, 2011 and here is a link to the website where you can download the free catalog!
