Emma Stone and Steve Carell film costumes from Battle of the Sexes...

This year's biopic sports comedy, Battle of the Sexes, recounts the true story of the televised 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (played by Emma Stone) and ex-champ, serial hustler and self-promoter Bobby Riggs (played by Steve Carell).

These movie costumes and tennis racquets were photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema on September 2, 2017, and I love how they've presented the outfits on a faux tennis court.

Mary Zophres was Costume Designer on this biopic directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton and was responsible for recreating the 1970s period looks of the time, plus she also designed the costumes in La La Land in which Emma Stone also starred.

This Battle of the Sexes tennis match was played at the Houston Astrodome when Billie Jean King was 29-years-old and Bobby Riggs was 55.

Admirers of the actress can also check out her movie costumes from The Help, her Gwen Stacy costume from The Amazing Spider-man 2 and her red dress from Gangster Squad.

Apparently Bobby Riggs was paid $50,000 to war this sponsored yellow Sugar Daddy lollipop jacket during the match, which he took off after after three games.

Fans of the actor can also check out his Anchorman 2 movie costume and costumes from The Office TV series.
