About the Costume

James Acheson initially designed this beautiful gown for the 1988 film Dangerous Liaisons. The dress itself was worn on Swoosie Kurtz as Mme de Volange, and the costumes for Dangerous Liaisons went on to win Acheson an Academy Award for Best Costume Design. Though many of the costumes from Dangerous Liaisons went on to be reused over the years, this one has been seen at least eight additional times! Of course, this is by no means a record, though it is a testament to the wonderful craftsmanship that went into the costume, as the piece still looks lovely even over thirty years later.

The first known time that the gown was used after Dangerous Liaisons was on an uncredited extra in the 1992 Annie Lennox music video Walking on Broken Glass. It was seen that same year when Josephine Buchan wore it as Constance in The House of Eliott. It was later seen on an extra in the 1994 film The Madness of King George, and on another extra in the 1995 Jefferson in Paris. In 2014 the costume was worn by Sarah Gadon as Elizabeth Murray in Belle, and in 2016 it was worn on an extra in an episode of Turn entitled Many Mickles Make a Muckle. In 2017 the gown was spotted on an extra in Interlude in Prague, and most recently, the costume was worn by Jessica Brown Findlay as Charlotte Wells in the 2018 second season of Harlots.
