Coinciding with the release of the film Lee, starring Kate Winslet, Brighton celebrates this most glamorous of Sussex residents with an exhibition that examines her life and work through her clothing.

Lee Miller – photographer, surrealist, model, war correspondent, writer, traveller and cook – lived her many lives with passion and audacity. These lives are all reflected in her dress and style: high fashion from 1930s Europe and New York; jodhpurs, bathing wear and folk dress from travel and adventures in Egypt and Europe with surrealist friends and artists, military uniform and her work as a war correspondent, maternity dress, motherhood, and life in rural Sussex as a surrealist host.
