This Incredible Dress Is Made Out of a Movie Script

Editor's Pick

To promote "Hollywood Costume," an exhibition at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, agency 180 LA worked with Brazilian multimedia artist Jum Nakao on an incredible installation inspired by Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette." Nakao transformed the actual script of the movie into a paper dress and headpiece fashioned after the costume worn by Kirsten Dunst on-screen. As shown in the video above, this involved a painstaking process of handcrafting that also pays homage to Oscar-winning costume designer Milena Canonero's work on the film (Canonero designed over 60 gowns for Dunst alone). The installation will travel around Los Angeles leading into the exhibition's opening on Oct. 2, with a final stop at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
