Love & Friendship movie costumes on display...

Last year Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny reunited on the big screen after their 1998 outing in Last Days of Disco for Whit Stillman's romantic period drama comedy, Love & Friendship. Set in the 1790s and based on Jane Austen's Lady Susan novella, Beckinsale's 'Lady Susan Vernon' takes up temporary residence at her in-laws country estate in order to secure a husband for her daughter, and herself naturally, by whatever schemes it takes with the help of her friend 'Alicia Johnson'.
