Pirates of the Caribbean fancy dress is among the costumes forming part of a new display at Leeds City Museum.

The Heroes and Heroines exhibition showcases some of the most memorable costumes ever to grace film and television, including the swashbuckling outfit worn by Orlando Bloom.

Colin Firth's gentlemanly rigout from Pride and Prejudice may bring back memories for some of his fans, while Renee Zellwegger's 1920s flapper fancy dress costume from Chicago could appeal to fans of vintage frocks.

Helen Langford, spokeswoman for the museum, told BBC News: "Anyone interested in film or fashion is going to love Heroes and Heroines. Some of the dresses and outfits on display look absolutely amazing."

The display will run until January 9th 2011 at Leeds City Museum, which is located on the east side of Millennium Square within easy reach of public transport links.

It is also currently hosting exhibitions entitled Fantastic Fossils and African Crafts.
