Wonderstruck movie costumes on display...

Based on Brian Selznick's 2011 novel, director Todd Haynes 2017 mystery drama Wonderstruck follows the stories of two children in two different time periods. In 1927 a young 12-year-old deaf 'Rose' (Millicent Simmonds) runs away from her father's New Jersey home to find her mother and idol, the actress 'Lillian Mayhew' (played by Julianne Moore), which is presented in black and white as a silent movie, whilst in 1977 a recently orphaned 12-year-old boy called 'Ben' (Oakes Fegly) runs aways from his Minnesota home in search of his father.

This film wardrobe from Wonderstruck was photographed on display at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum on February 6, 2018 and the different time period costumes were designed by three-time Oscar winner Sandy Powell.

You can see more of her work in these Cinderella live-action movie costumes, these Carol movie costumes and these Hugo movie costumes.

I thought it was worth shining a spotlight on this 18th century stage costume worn by Julianne Moore as actress Lillian Mayhew. This faux period gown is covered in shiny metallic lamé decorations and bows on the dress, but shorter in style than traditional 18th century dresses to reflect the 1920s silver screen era.

Fans of Julianne Moore can also check out her Poppy costume from Kingsman: The Golden Circle and her costume from The Kids Are All Right.
