The Olympics are not the only attraction in London this Summer. The V&A Museum is celebrating British Glamour and style since the 1950s, with its new exhibition Ballgowns.
The exhibition promises a glimpse into the elegant British life style from the late 50s into today. More than 60 ballgowns are on display. Photos of gowns in settings of grand English houses, a peek at royal balls of the past, and fabulous occasions, to great events of now.
Some very famous royal dresses, dresses worn by celebrities, iconic dresses, dresses that caused a stir on the catwalk…
Of course, I will make a stop at the V&A to see this fabulous exhibit. See you there next time…
