About the Costume

This beautiful robe à la française has been used on at least eight occasions; though it is unknown from what production it originated, the most likely candidate is The Madness of King George.

The first known appearance of this gown was in the 1999 mini-series The Aristocrats, where Geraldine Sommerville wore it as Lady Emily Lennox. In 2001 it was worn in Le pacte des loups (Brotherhood of the Wolf) on Émilie Dequenne as Marianne de Morangais. It was used twice in 2006 – first on Shirley Henderson as Aunt Sophie in Marie Antoinette and then again on Sophia Myles as Madame du Pompadour in the episode of Doctor Who entitled The Girl in the Fireplace. The costume appeared again in 2009 on Sue Perkins in The Supersizers Go: The French Revolution, and then in 2012, it was seen in Horrible Histories on Martha Howe-Douglas as a courtier. In 2013 the gown was worn by Sarah Gadon as Elizabeth Murray in Belle. Finally, the dress was spotted in 2017 on Jessica Brown Findley as Charlotte Wells in Harlots.

Costume Commentary

  1. Thank you, Megan. I believe we actually have a couple of gowns from Poldark on this site. If you know of any others, please do send them in! We’d love to see them!

  2. For gowns of this period – check the Poldark series, which was set then. A number of gowns were made for it which were later recycled into same-period shows/movies.
