hollywood glamour

a perfect morning to spend on a rainy day at the V & A – viewing the costumes from renowned films, from gone with the wind, to french lieutenants woman and some like it hot – except, i somehow managed to miss the last room.  i dont know how i managed to do this, but its just another excuse for me to go back again .  i found the section with the director and costume designer more interesting, but it made me realise that even for a modern day set film, the costume design is just as important as a historical one – it just wasnt as inspiring looking at a pair of jeans and a tee shirt!

i am thoroughly confused with the new paving area leading from the tube station to the museum – i like that there are tables outside, more cafes and eating places, but almost feel nervous about being run over, because i cant distinguish between the road and the pavement!  anyhow, i noticed a new branch of kulu kulu – the original sushi  on a conveyor belt, but far superior than yo sushi – tasty and affordable.  but if its lovely and sunny, you cant beat the inner garden courtyard of the v & a for coffee and cake!
