Hollywood costumes exhibition opens in London

 
 

LONDON (AP) - Darth Vader, Charlie Chaplin's Little Tramp, Scarlett O'Hara and Indiana Jones have all come under one London roof.

Not the actual characters, of course, but the outfits they made famous in some of Hollywood's most beloved films.

A new London exhibition has brought together more than 100 iconic costumes, from Chaplin's tramp outfit to the world's most famous ruby slippers.

The show, at the Victoria and Albert Museum, aims to tell the story of costume design and how it helps create believable characters.
