National portrait gallery: Glamour of the Gods

Glamour of the Gods is a celebration of the 'Golden Age' of Hollywood, from 1920 to 1960. From Greta Garbo and Clark Gable to Audrey Hepburn, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, it's an exhibition of the photographs that created international style icons and in many cases these are the career-defining images of Hollywood's greatest names.

Featuring over 70 photographs, the exhibition demonstrates the part that photography played in creating the Hollywood mystique which changed just about everything.  

The exhibition only runs until the 23 October, so you'll have to be quick, and if you've been or you're going, I'd love to know what you think of it.
