We’re getting in gear for the Academy Awards a little early here in Cincinnati, as the Taft Museum of Art today opens its latest exhibition, Fashion in Film: Period Costumes for the Screen. The 36 costumes have been worn in blockbusters such as Titanic, Evita, Sense and Sensibility, Ever After and others. The fashion festivities continue through April 26.
Pictured here is Two-Piece Evening Dress worn by Kate Beckinsale as Maggie Verver in the film, The Golden Bowl (2000), set in the early 1900s. Costumes designed by John Bright; directed by James Ivory. Silk satin with lace.
