Costumes worn by Astaire, Olivier and Dench go on display

Angels Costumes has been dressing actors for over 175 years.

The family-run business has created attire for Fred Astaire, Laurence Olivier, Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep, among others.

For the first time, the public will be able to view more than 100 costumes as part of an exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery, in London.

With eight miles of hanging costumes to choose from, BBC News went to find out which ones made the cut.
