DRESSING THE PART: The awards season is well underway, and an upcoming show at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is aiming to capture some of that excitement, highlighting the importance of costume design in the film industry. The show, “Hollywood Costume,” will run from October 20 through Jan. 27, 2013, and will explore the central role of costumes in creating character, while also illuminating the creative process.

Highlights will include Dorothy’s blue and white gingham pinafore from the “Wizard of Oz,” the emerald silk evening gown worn by Keira Knightley in “Atonement,” and Consolata Boyle’s creations for Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady.” Plenty of heroes’ costumes will also be on display, including looks worn by Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and by James Bond and Indiana Jones.
