Based on the 2004 novel 'These Foolish Things' by Deborah Moggach, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a British comedy-drama directed by Shakespeare in Love's John Madden. The movie stars a fantastic veteran ensemble cast, boasting the likes of Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Tom Wilkinson and Ronald Pickup, plus Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel adds a youthful element.
The film follows a group of British retirees who have been attracted to the seemingly more exotic and less expensive life of leisure at a retirement hotel in India. They discover the Marigold Hotel is not as luxurious as they'd been promised, but they are all soon transformed by their experiences and their new life.
Louise Stjernsward is Costume Designer on the movie and these outfits featured in the film were worn by Dame Judi Dench and Dev Patel.
These original costumes were photographed on display at the ArcLight Hollywood cinema on April 13, 2012.
