A V&A museum employee poses for the photographers as she looks at a diamonds and emeralds neckless and a ring made by Bulgari that were gifted to US star Elizabeth Taylor by her then husband Richard Burton in the 1960s and a brooch from the same maker, gifted to her by her fourth husband Eddie Fisher later, at an exhibition entitled: 'The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014', at the V&A museum in London, Wednesday, April 2, 2014. The show, which according to the museum, is the first to examine Italy's rich and influential contribution to fashion from the end of the Second World War to the present, opens on April 5 to July 27, 2014. On display are around 120 ensembles and accessories by leading Italian fashion houses and the exhibition follows the story from the landmark catwalk shows in the 1950s to the impact of Hollywood films shot on location in Italy during the 1950s/60s where stars like Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor became style ambassadors for Italian fashion.
