The tattered dress Anne Hathaway wore in her Oscar-winning performance as Fantine in "Les Miserables" recently went on display at Universal Studios Hollywood. It's among the wardrobe items featured at the theme park from three of five films nominated for 2013 Academy Awards for costume design.

The pieces are being shown as part of the NBCUniversal Experience, which takes visitors on a behind-the-scenes tour of props and costumes at the amusement park.

The display features the opera gown Keira Knightley wore in "Anna Karenina," which won the best costume award for Jacqueline Durran; more costumes from "Les Miserables," including the white gown worn by Cosette (Amanda Seyfried); and the coronation dress and other items from "Snow White and the Huntsman." (The other two films nominated for costumes were "Lincoln" and "Mirror Mirror.")

According to a theme park announcement, the attraction features items from 100 years of filmmaking, including figures from "ParaNorman" and "Coraline" and classic props such as the DeLorean from "Back to the Future."

Tickets start at $80 per person for admission to the park for a single day (and the rest of the year, with blackout dates) to $299 per person for the VIP Experience, which offers exclusive access to back lots and the costume department as well as unlimited rides with front-of-the-line access.
