Costume Commentary

  1. Just today I found Cinderella’s gray-green work dress being sold by Planet Hollywood. It had been altered slightly but does come with a certificate of authenticity. My husband bought it for me. It will be in good hands with me, I promise. I’m going to speak with costumers about whether it would be worthwhile to attempt to return the dress to its original state, but unless they say otherwise, the dress will stay as it is.

  2. I hadn’t realized all these comments were here; how interesting! Did James send any images to go with the sightings he mentioned in his comment below? If not, I own DVDs of some of the films/programs mentioned, and my libraries have the rest (except Joseph Andrews).

  3. Well , hi James, thought I might see you here! 🙂  Yep, I can confirm that the floral Gemma Craven dress is still around and owned by a collector in the UK who has several other costumes from the film including Richard Chaimberlain’s.  I know this as I was lucky enough to get my hands on 7 of the dresses at a costume sale at a local threatre and sold 3 of them to the collector.  (I won’t say his name in case that’s not the done thing).  I still have the remaining 4 dresses.  Have to say they had not been looked after very well and needed some work to secure them so they will never be as they were. 🙁   I know that some of the other dresses were sold to other people before I got to the sale (unfortunatley, i hear that one of the pinks ones got dyed black and used as a halloween costume, nooooo!!) and that the ones that did not sell were later taken away as, apparently, they should not have been in the sale in the first place! Whoops!  Not sure why they got split up or where they had been for the years in between up until a couple of years ago, but I highly suspect they were being used in theatres.  x

    • WOW Guys, you are wonderful and have answered so many questions I had about these gowns they were so beautiful and Im so glad that at least some of them have ended up in the hands of collectors who know them an love them! I wish I had your contacts and could get my hands on just one of them! I hae been in love with this film since I was tiny! I used draw pictures and pictures of the sets and costumes. I dont suppose any of you would be so kind as to send me some pics of the costumes you have???? I would so love to see them again as they are now. If any of you could or would my email address is craig.botham@fsmail.net James andJoolz you too are so lucky to have seen/ touched and owned these gowns and costumes I wish I knew you both personally so I could have seen them to! LOL Thank you all to everyone who has provided info since my original post . . . . please keep any news coming . . . . I never get tired of hearing about these costumes or this film! LOL Cragster.

          • Wow!!!!! Thanks so much Joolz you know what is spooky . . . . I have seen some of your costumes before  . . . . I came across some pics from a site where I think you had sold a couple of them earlier this year! I recognized your hair =) Thank you so much for he link, you have an amazing collection and I recognized the gowns from the slipper right away! You ae sooooo lucky to have them especially the one worn by Margaret Lockwood! She is a bit of a movie icon of mine! It was amazing to see them. and you look great in them! Its so good to know they are in the hands of someone who knows them and loves them! If ever you here of any more coming up for grabs please let me know, I would love to own one! =) Thank you again Joolz It is a real treat to see them, Cragster.

  4. It is very strange to see the pale green dress above on Sherrie Hewson (Palatine), as it was not her gown in the film but the stepmother’s gown. 
    Palatine’s gown was lilac with white sleeve ruffles & pink roses & Isabella’s gown was peach & white with white sleeve ruffles peach flowers ~& peach appliqué work. 
    I have seen this film over 100 times and own an original book to the film. 
    It is an appalling disappointment to discover that many of these gowns have rotted away or been altered. I rebuilt miniatures of several of these gowns but gave them away a few years ago.As for the slippers – I always wondered what became of them – as they were auctioned I assume they went into a private collection – where I hope they were cherished

    • The dress above is Sherrie Hewsons dress it is made of green taffeta it’s a day dress and she wears it twice in the film you are thinking of the stepmothers ball gown was lime green satin

  5. i have a good eye for spotting costumes always have and it is one of may favorites too I was lucky enough some years ago to see some of the dresses from the film including the one above that I sent in I have pictures of them somewhere I also know someone who owns a few of them i have made reproductions of some of them

  6. I know that one of cinderella’s grey dresses also appears in Clarissa on an extra in a street scene it was so quick I couldnt get a picture of it
    I know afew of the ball dresses are in the film “Joseph Andrews”
    Margaret Lockwood’s ball dress was reused in “Doctor Who” – Black Orchid
    The Queens ball dress was reused in “The Bretts” and “Love in a Cold Climate”

    On The DVD commantry Bryan Forbes said that Cinderellas ball dress and slippers were auctioned off for charity after the film
    Also alot of the dresses ended up in a wardrobe dept at a theatre in Norfolk

    • It almost seems as if they have vanished into thin air doesnt it? I mean there were hundreds of accurate 18th century costumes made for the film,and it is strange that they were not seen reused more often as is the norm.After the early 90s no one really knows what happened to the main costumes.Perhaps angels still have them.

      • When i was at Angels nearly 20 years ago I saw some of the costumes Issabella’s peach ball dress was in rags as the fabric had rotted, Margaret Lockwoods black dress was still there but had been completely changed, Cinderella’s cream floral dress was there but they didn’t realise what it was, and Issabella’s yellow dress was in the hire shop where anyone could rent it, they also had the queens floral print dress worn for a bride finding ball number.

  7. I don’t have any information about Cinderella’s ball gown, specifically, but I have read reports online that Angel’s used to have some of her costumes (including the cape she wore to the ball) in their “for hire” shop in London where anyone could rent them for a costume/fancy dress party.

  8. What a great site! And so nice to see some of these amazing costumes have a life after there first apperance I cant believe this gown from The Slipper and the Rose was still working in 1991! Does anyone know what happened to the ball gown worn y Gemma Craven as Cinderella in this movie? Would love to know what happened to that costume after the gowns from this movie were epic!
