About the Costume

This dress was originally designed for the 1988 film Dangerous Liaisons by costume designer James Acheson, where Mildred Natwick wore it as Madame de Rosemonde. The fabric for the dress was specially printed for the film and was modeled after an 18th century wallpaper. Remainders of the printed material went on to be used later for the Queen Mother’s costume for Act 1 of the Royal Ballet’s Swan Lake.

This gown has been used many times since its first sighting in Dangerous Liaisons, including the 1991 mini-series Clarissa, where Cathryn Harrison wore it as Mrs. Sinclair. The costume was seen worn by extras in the 1994 film The Madness of King George, the 1995 Jefferson in Paris, and the 1997 production Dance to the Music of Time.

The gown is in remarkable condition, considering how old it is and how many times it has been used. For several years the gown was part of the Fashion In Film Exhibit that toured across the country. You can learn more about the exhibit and see more photos at The Costumers Guide.

Costume Commentary

  1. This fabric is copied from an 18th century wall paper and the fabric was printed for “Dangous Liasons” by a company called Hopkins, the company I work for bought what was left over and it was used for the Queen Mothers costume for Act 1 of Swan Lake by The Royal Ballet

    •  Really?  That is a fascinating piece of information! I may have to go see if I can track down a photo of the Queen Mother’s costume.   I’ve also heard that the blue version of this fabric is used for the “wishing” Gown in the stage play Phantom of the Opera, but I am not sure.

  2. This costume also appears on an extra in the 4th film from
    A Dance to the music of Time
    1997
    Costume seen on an extra playing a singer at a concert

  3. This gown also uses the same fabric as the blue ‘Wishing Gown’ from the stage production of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, but dyed a different colour.
