In case you remember the exhibit at LACMA a couple of years ago on European clothing from 1700 to 1915, and a lot of Angelenos did go see that one, this might be of interest.

Stewart, by the way, has since been honored with an award for career achievement in film at the Costume Designers Guild Awards.
