Mary Boleyn’s Green Dress in Anne of the Thousand Days
Hands down, one of the most beautiful dresses in this film, and it’s reserved for poor ‘ol cast-off Mary Boleyn. This marvelous vibrant green silk damask gown is only glimpsed in a handful of scenes. Unlike several other costumes from this film, this particular gown seems to have only had this sole on-screen appearance, which is a damn shame.
Lady Danbury’s Red Organza Pelisse in Bridgerton, Ep. 1
I am fascinated by the use of organza in place of more traditional fabrics for outerwear, so of course this ensemble caught my eye immediately. I wish there were better pics of the full length, because my screencap abilities weren’t good enough to get a clear shot of it. It appears to be made from possibly a red/black shot silk organza, worn over a sleeveless red silk undergown. I love the way it seems to float around Adjoa Andoh’s body like a magical red aura.
Comtesse de Noailles’ Yellow Dress in Marie Antoinette
This is one of my all-time favorite gowns in this film, not least of all because it is yellow (I am a sucker for yellow) and being worn by Judy Davis (also a sucker for Judy Davis). But I also love it because it reminds me so much of this extant robe à la française in the Kyoto Costume Institute’s collection:
Beth’s White Dress in The Queen’s Gambit
Another dress I wish I could get decent full-length photos of! I fell in love with the simplicity of this little white dress, particularly with the fun buttoned shoulder straps and the very subtle black piping around the V neckline. I would rock this look!
Pretty Much Anything in L’Innocente
Yeah, it seems like none of us can work up the energy to watch this film, but goddamn the costumes are STUNNING. Which is a no-brainer because they were designed by Italian costumier Piero Tosi.
