Bridge of Spies movie costumes on display...

Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies historical thriller is based on the 1960 U-2 Cold War incident, when an American spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union and lawyer 'James B. Donovan' (Tom Hanks) was tasked with negotiating the release of the pilot in exchange for 'Rudolf Abel' (Mark Rylance), a KGB spy in U.S. captivity. The film's title refers to the Glienicke Bridge which connects Potsdam with Berlin in Germany, where the prisoner exchange took place.

Crimson Peak's gothic romantic film costumes on display...

Guillermo del Toro's gothic horror romance film, Crimson Peak, may not have set the box office alight, but the film's fashion certainly turns heads and this exquisite collection of costumes was definitely one of the highlights of L.A.'s FIDM Museum's 24th Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibition on February 12, 2016.

In the film, Mia Wasikowska's 'Edith Cushing' is enticed to live in a haunted mansion in the remote English countryside by the mysterious and seductive 'Thomas Sharpe' (Tom Hiddleston). Marrying him, she moves into the house along with his equally enigmatic sister, 'Lucille' (Jessica Chastain), and discovers that the manse and its occupants hold more than a few spooky secrets.

The actress wears these two costumes in the movie, and as these outfits were on display out of display cases it was amazing to see the embroidery on the sleeves and creepy details like the clasping hands waist belt up close.

Mia Wasikowska is no stranger to wearing elaborate costumes, like these Alice in Wonderland movie costumes and Jane Eyre period drama costumes.

Rather interestingly the exhibit also had a pair of the button-up boots worn by the actress as Edith on display, and next to them the original 1870s pair (on the left) that were matched detail-for-detail to recreate historically accurate fashion for the period film.
