About the Costume

This beautiful gown was made for the production The Madness of King George in 1994 and was worn by Charlotte Harker as Mrs. Fitzherbert. It appeared a second time in 1994 worn by an uncredited extra in the BBC’s Aristocrats. It was recycled two years later for 2001’s The Affair of the Necklace, once again on an extra. It appeared several years later in the science program Nova in the episode Einstein’s Big Idea, where Helene de Fougerolles wore it as Emilie du Châtelet. The gown made two appearances in 2006, both times on uncredited extras, first in the wedding scene of Marie Antoinette and then in the Doctor Who episode The Girl in the Fireplace. It was then seen a seventh time in the 2007 BBC production Fanny Hill worn by Samantha Bond as Mrs. Cole.

Costume Commentary

  1. I’ve found it. Thanks to Megan’s tip, I made screenshots of Uma Thurman as Maid Marian wearing this costume for the betrothal scene in Robin Hood (1991), and Ione Skye as Eleanor Grey in episode six of Covington Cross: Blinded Passions (1992).

  2. Thank you, Megan. Do you happen to have screenshots of the gown from Covington Cross and Robin Hood?It sounds like a lovely sighting, and we’d love to have it here up at Recycled Movie Costumes!

    Thanks for all of your input! 🙂

  3. It’s been well known to costumers for about 60 years that the BBC costume department had (until they were all sold off) the best and most historically accurate period costume collection in the world. The reason that many costume movies and TV series were made in the UK was to be able to easily utilise the resource.

    BTW: In the TV series Covington Cross, the daughter wears a beautifully embroidered gown that was made for Uma Thurman to wear in the version of Robin Hood that she was in (this was not the Kevin Costner version).

  4. Good eye! Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s the same gown. That gown has a much more square neckline, wheras this one is very rounded. That gown also appears to have a pattern on both the petticoat and on the stomacher. Also – Casanova was filmed in Italy, so they likely used mostly Italian costume houses, since this yellow gown seems to have stayed in the UK (and possibly France for Marie Antoinette) But that was a good catch! Keep on the lookout!

  5. I could be worng but if you got to IMDBN and watch the clip of the costumes from casanova, at 0.39 the extra on the left of the screen, is she wearing this dress?
