V&A's 'Ballgowns' display features Princess Diana, Liz Hurley dresses.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is to play host to an exhibition of some of fashion's most-famous dresses, including items worn by Princess Diana, Elizabeth Hurley and Sandra Bullock.

The Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 display will include designs dating back to the early 1950s and dresses worn to celebrity events, such as the Golden Globes, British Fashion Awards and film premieres.

Running from 19 May 2012 to 6 January 2013, the exhibition will also feature clothes created by the likes of Dame Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Norman Hartnell, who created pieces for both Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mother.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty exhibition - a display of the late designer's work - looks set to move to London.

A statement issued by the brand read: "Alexander McQueen appreciates the huge amount of interest the public has shown towards the Savage Beauty exhibition.

"We have been in discussion with a number of major venues in London for some time now, however nothing has been confirmed."
