gene london: the magic of hollywood.

     on saturday i had the amazing opportunity to go to the local art museum in my hometown and visit "the magic of hollywood: the gene london costume collection."  it featured over one hundred costumes from some of hollywood's most famous films.  i was completely entranced.  the dresses were gorgeous and i got to see some of my all time favorite gowns up close and personal.

    i went to the exhibit with my mom and sisters and we had such a blast swooning over the dresses we had seen hundreds of times on film.  seeing these creations in person was incredible!  the exhibit features costumes worn by vivian leigh, hedy lamarr, mae west, jean harlow, and so many more.
the exhibit is around until may, so if you are in the area it is an absolute must-see!


  1. thanks for the glowing review...had mixed feelings about the exhibit but now we are going!

  2. We just went to this today just days before it's earlier-than-planned closing. STUNNING pieces!
