The Crown season two TV costumes on display...

With temperatures soaring in L.A. at the moment, I thought I'd cool off and pop along to the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills and check out the fabulous costume exhibit for the second season of Netflix's The Crown television series before the temporary exhibition for the historical drama came to an end.

The next collection of outfits are from the Emmy-nominated eighth episode of the second season, 'Dear Mrs. Kennedy', when the 35th American President 'John F. Kennedy' (played by Michael C. Hall) and 'Jackie Kennedy' (Jodi Balfour) visit Buckingham Palace and Queen Elizabeth takes a trip to Ghana to quell an insurrection.

Meanwhile fans of Matt Smith as 'Prince Philip' can also check out all his Doctor Who costumes on display.

For another pink Chanel suit worn by the American First Lady be sure to also take a look at Natalie Portman's Jackie movie costume.

Meanwhile fans of this show can also check out these Emmy-winning costumes from The Crown's first season.

Obviously this is the last we'll see of this particular cast in their royal attire as new actors take over the roles in the third season, but let's see in September whether The Crown can take home another accolade for Costume Design.
