About the Costume

This lovely dress has been used for several productions since its first appearance in 1995 when Thandiwe Newton wore it to portray Sally Hemings in Jefferson in Paris. Three years later, in the 1998 Wuthering Heights, the same dress was seen on Orla Brady as Cathy Earnshaw. It was then sighted in the television mini-series A Respectable Trade in 1998, where Emma Fielding wore it as Frances Scott Cole. The next year Jessica Oyelowo wore the gown as Sarah in the 1999 film Sleepy Hollow. That same year, an extra wore the gown in The Scarlet Pimpernel: The Kidnapped King. It was another eight years before the dress reappeared in the 2007 adaptation of Mansfield Park, where Billie Piper wore it as Fanny Price. Finally, in 2009, an extra was spotted in the dress in the British period legal drama Garrow’s Law.

Costume Commentary

  1. It sure is! And wow, I had no idea Gregory’s “A Respectable Trade” had been made into a BBC mini series! I confess, I am not a fan of Gregory at all, but I don’t know much about her non Tudor work and wonder if it is any good…I may have to check this out!

  2. Well, here it is again! This time it’s worn by Emma Fielding as Frances Scott Cole in BBC’s 1998 mini series of Philippa Gregory’s A Respectable Trade.

  3. Oh my goodness! I don’t know how I missed this one! It’s my favourite version of Wuthering Heihgts and I’ve seen it a million times! Thanks for pointing it out, Anna!

  4. Oh, what a clever catch! I think you’re right! I must go back and get a screencap of them picking over fabric! Thanks so much for the info!

  5. I haven’t seen Jefferson in Paris in years, but I beleive that there is a scene in which Mrs. Cosway assists Jefferson in selecting the fabric for this gown. If I remember correctly, a bolt of the fabric is a prop in the scene, which strongly sugests that this gown was created for Jefferson in Paris.
