Newbridge Style Icons Museum

Last Wednesay I went on a college trip to the Newbridge Style Icons Museum. I personally think this is well worth a visit if you have any interest in past style icons, vintage clothing or even a bit of history. It was a very surreal experience to think such famous people wore these magnificent creations. Below I have posted some of the garments I got to see.


                        Green wool suit worn by Tippi Hedren in the 1963 film The Birds.

           Princess Diana's final wedding dress toile, this is an exact rendition of the real
                                                             gown later made with silk.

As everyone knows by now Dallas has return to our T.V screens, so I was super excited when I saw that this was Lucy Ewing's wedding suit and matching shoes. The wedding suit as worn by Charlene Titon as Lucy Ewing when she married Mitch Cooper played by Liegh McCloskey (1985). This was Dallas's second highest rated episode, just behind the famous 'Who Shot J.R episode'. 

                                                   Audrey Hepburn

I was especially delighted when I found out there was a huge display dedicated to Audrey Hepburn as she is most definitely in my eyes one of the world's top fashion icons. I love all of the outfits she wore in the 60's and this is the type of style that i hope will inspire some of my looks. These are some pictures of her outfits. Hope these will give everyone some style inspiration.
