Costumes worn by Keira Knightley and Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Anna Karenina...

I've already had the pleasure of seeing some other original costumes from Joe Wright and Tom Stoppard's 2012 big screen adaptation of Tolstoy's literary classic Anna Karenina, so I was even more delighted to spy two more outfits from the movie on display at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema on November 25, 2012.

There's some Oscar buzz surrounding this latest incarnation of Anna Karenina and at the very least I can imagine the costumes being acknowledged by the Academy next year.
