Organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Hollywood Costume explores the central role costume design plays in cinematic storytelling.

Lunch at the Jefferson Hotel
This elegant hotel has played host to presidents, authors, explorers, and, of course, movie stars. In keeping with our movie theme, we chose a hotel that has been featured in several movies, including My Dinner with Andre (1981) and The American President (1995).
