The Academy, Annette Bening & Gwyneth Paltrow Host Hollywood Costume Luncheon
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hosted a private luncheon and viewing of the current exhibition, Hollywood Costume, on Wednesday, October 8, at the Wilshire May Company building – future home of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
The luncheon was hosted by Academy Governor Annette Bening, Crystal Lourd, Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Elizabeth Wiatt.
WAMG attended the press preview in September. Taking five years to create, this must-see exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.
