what’s on: ballgowns: british glamour since 1950

If you’re in London over the next few months, be prepared for the onslaught of fabulous exhibits timed to coincide with the Olympics.

The one I’m most excited about is Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 at the V&A. The exhibit features more than 60 gowns designed by such names as Alexander McQueen, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Erdem, John Galliano and Bruce Oldfield.

The gowns themselves have been worn by famous faces including Diana, Princess of Wales, Bianca Jagger, Elizabeth Hurley and Beyoncé.

Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 opens today and runs through until 6 January 2013 at the V&A Museum. Entry to the exhibit is £10 (though the rest of the museum is free to enter anytime).
