Make your pick for which film will take home an Academy Award® on February 26 for Best Costume design at the 20th Annual Art Of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition. The costumes from all five films nominated for Best Costume Design will be on view, among costumes from 20 of 2011’s outstanding movies. The exhibition opens Tuesday, February 14 and runs until April 28, at the FIDM Museum & Galleries.
“Every year it’s an exciting challenge to secure pieces for our annual film costume exhibition,” commented Michael Black, Art Of Motion Picture Costume Design Curator. “It’s been even more of a thrill this year to select the participants for our historic twentieth anniversary. From Fred Astaire’s tap shoes, shown in our first exhibition in 1993, to costumes from all five 2012 Best Costume nominees, it is always an honor to recognize the creativity and vision of the costume designers working in film.”
The nominated costumes that represent the greatest achievements in film costumes this year are:
In keeping with the museum’s tradition of showcasing the previous year’s Oscar® winner for Best Costume Design, visitors will again see pieces from Alice in Wonderland by Costume Designer Colleen Atwood (2011 Academy Award® Winner).

Since 1993, the Art Of Motion Picture Costume Design has drawn thousands of visitors and media from around the world. The FIDM Museum is proud of our association with all the creative people who produce magic for the film industry and salute their skills, dedication, talents, and triumphs.
