while in london, i visited the british music experience gallery at the o2, as i mentioned before. in the mid-60s gallery, there was (of course) lots of beatles stuff there that i was completely in awe of - ringo's suit, george's guitar etc - but one item i was really in love with was a dress worn by an usherette at the premiere of the beatles' 1964 film, a hard day's night.
unfortunately, photography wasn't allowed in the exhibition (although i was going to take some super sneaky photos but i was scared in case they had cctv & threw me out. yeah, rebellious) so you'll have to make do with the pictures i found on google.
see, isn't it amazing? the one in the gallery was actually blue, but this is pretty much what it looked like. this picture linked to a website where it looked like you could actually buy the dress, but it was sold out sadly!
yeah, i know it's on a freaking sindy doll, but what can you do? her eyes really scare me actually.
i would really love to own this dress, so either i'll be stalking ebay & google & many beatle devoted websites to find it, or i may try & make my own! which could be ambitious, but let's see how it goes.
