Oscar-nominated Victoria & Abdul movie costumes on display...

In last year's Victoria & Abdul, Dame Judi Dench reprised her role as the cantankerous 'Queen Victoria' in a true story about an unlikely friendship between the British monarch and her Indian servant and confidant 'Abdul Karim' (played by Ali Fazal). Consolata Boyle's costume designs from Stephen Frears adaptation of Shrabani Basu's 2010 historical book were nominated for an Academy Award.

After the death of her husband, 'Prince Albert', at the young age of 42 in 1861, Queen Victoria only wore black for the rest of her reign, in mourning for almost four decades.

It's amazing the detail that goes into these costumes, most you don't see on the big screen, especially the pictures of Prince Albert on the Queen's bracelets.

Fans of the actress can also check out her costume from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
