Lady Mary Fox in a 1767 painting by Pompeo Girolamo Batoni

 

This beautiful Georgian era costume has been used at least four times over the last few years in various productions. It was originally designed by Michael O’Connor for The Duchess, for which he won an Oscar for best costume design. This piece most closely resembles a Brunswick - a hooded, hip length jacket paired with a matching petticoat. However, this costume lacks the flounced elbow length upper sleeves of a typical Brunswick, though this was likely an artistic choice. This costume is almost certainly modeled after a piece worn by Lady Mary Fox in a 1767 portrait by Italian painter Pompeo Girolamo Batoni.

This costume makes its first appearance in 2008 on Charlotte Rampling as Lady Spencer in The Duchess.  In 2012 it was seen in A Royal Affair on Laura Bro as Louise von Plessen.  It was used twice in 2013, first on Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Dido Elizabeth Belle in the film Belle, and then in the made-for-television Death Comes to Pemberley, where it was worn on Hayley Doherty as Anne de Bourgh. Most recently it was seen on Lesley Manville as Lydia Quigley in Harlots in 2017.
