About the Costume

Made with bright pink and orange trimming, this impossible-to-miss gown was first worn by Angharad Rees as Demelza in the 1975 BBC television series adaptation Poldark. Over twenty years later, the gown resurfaced as a prop in two 1999 episodes of the television series Let Them Eat Cake. It was first seen in the episode A Marriage of Convenience and later in the episode entitled Command Performance. Seven years later, the gown was spotted on an uncredited extra in a masquerade scene in the 2006 film Marie Antoinette. The stomacher seems to have undergone some changes, with the original decorative bows (échelle) replaced with yellow and orange ribbons in the 2009 film Coco Before Chanel, where Marie Gillain wore the dress as Adrienne Chanel.
