Oh, Frocktalkers – what a find this is. Cecil Beaton was an Academy Award-winning costume designer (Gigi – 1958, and My Fair Lady – 1964), but before he was a costume designer, he was a photographer. And WHAT a photographer. WOW. His impressive photographs from WWII Britain are now on display at the Imperial War Museum in London. The exhibition runs from 9/6/12 to 1/1/13. So look – if you travel to London to see the amazing Hollywood Costumes exhibit at the V & A between October – January, you can stop by and see Beaton’s work at the IWM in the same trip. It’s a win-win!! I hope that they publish a book of his photos, because they are great research pieces. Absolutely stunning. More information HERE and nice article with photos HERE!
