Costume Commentary

  1. this lovely burgundy pelisse was worn by marilyn taylerson as amelia sedley for her wedding in the 1967-version of vanity fair, not the 1987 one, which i desperatly tried to find a copy but simply couldn’t do so a few years ago. however, there does seem to be something available now, so thanks so much for the reminder ;oD

    that also means, that the costume was probably made for the elder production and easily is one of the most sophisticated in the whole thing. shame it only shows in the flash of a moment and therefore no wonder it has been reused ;o)

  2. Oh wow, thanks Anna. I’ll switch the last image around to the firstthen, since it must have come first. I wonder where the photo I have came from! Ha! Thanks for letting me know. It is a beautiful costume – I would not be surprised if it is still around somewhere.
