About the Costume

This purple livery has been used many times over the years. It’s difficult to know exactly where the pieces originated, but it is most likely that they were made for the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. In 1972 one of the pieces was seen again in the Upstairs, Downstairs episode entitled I Dies from Love. The costumes were used a second time in 1972 in the mini-series War and Peace. The year 1975 saw the pieces reused twice as well – first in Poldark and then in Madame Bovary. In 1982 they were seen in an adaptation of The Scarlet Pimpernel, and in 2012 they were worn in Anna Karenina. In 2015 they made an appearance in Cinderella, and most recently they were spotted in the 2018 Vanity Fair.
