Fab new movie costumes and Q&As in La La Land...

This past month I've been trying to catch up on as many new movie releases as possible, like Victoria & Abdul, Battle of the Sexes, Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Stronger, and at the same time checking out al the new film costume exhibits at my local ArcLight Hollywood cinema.

I really loved the new British royal period drama Victoria & Abdul, and in addition to seeing these costumes designed by Consolata Boyle on display in the foyer, I also got the opportunity see the movie and attend a Q&A with the star Dame Judi Dench and the director Stephen Frears after the screening.

After the movie I also went home and rewatched 1997's Mrs. Brown, the last time that Judi Dench had played 'Queen Victoria' and then returned to the ArcLight to rewatch Victoria & Abdul for a second viewing as my husband, who's a big Dame Judi fan, wasn't able to attend the special Friday afternoon Q&A.

Another costume exhibit at the ArcLight Hollywood in September was for the Rodarte fashion-designing sisters directorial debut, Woodshock.

Kate and Laura Mulleavy were also Costume Designers on the movie with Christine Wittenborn, and this Woodshock costume exhibit for the movie grew in size on the different occasions I visited the venue.

At the moment the cinema has these fantastic period costumes from Goodbye Christopher Robin on display, designed by Odile Dicks-Mireaux and worn by Domhnall Gleeson, Margot Robbie and Will Tilston in the film about the origins of 'Winnie-the-Pooh' and his author A. A. Milne.

In addition, the venue currently also has these futuristic costumes from sci-fi sequel Blade Runner 2049 on display.

These outfits worn by Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas and Harrison Ford in the movie were designed by RenĂ©e April and were cool to see in person, certainly evoking the futuristic fashion of the 1982 cult classic.

As you can see it's been an exciting few weeks for movie lovers, let's hope this behind-the-scenes trend continues in the coming weeks...
