In 2015 Lily James brought the rags-to-riches 'Ella' to life in Kenneth Branagh's lavish live-action Disney adaptation and wore this glittering fairytale blue ballgown, adorned with butterflies, to dance with the Prince before the clock struck twelve.

If you love this voluminous gown, be sure to check out more fabulous Oscar-nominated film costumes from Cinderella designed by Sandy Powell on display at other exhibitions.

I may have seen these three gowns on display on previous occasions, but they're still a delight to see in person out of reflective cases to see the craftsmanship and elaborate designs up close.
