About the Costume

It is not known where this lovely gown originated, but its first known appearance was on Serena Gordon as Caroline Lennox in 1999’s Aristocrats. In 2006 the costume was found in an episode of Doctor Who titled The Girl in the Fireplace, where Sophia Myles wore it as Madame de Pompadour. The gown looks very different, with trim having been added to the stomacher and sleeve. Studying the placement of stripes and the small flowers embroidered on them allows us to see that the dress the same one seen in Aristocrats. The altered gown was used again in the 2007 production of Fanny Hill, where it was worn by Rebecca Night in the title role.
