About the Costume

The 1988 film Dangerous Liaisons was based on Christopher Hampton’s play Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which was based on the 18th-century novel of the same name by author Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. The film adaptation was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Actress, Best Picture and Best Costumes. James Acheson’s designs for the film ultimately did win him the Oscar, and his beautiful pieces have gone on to be used in numerous productions over the years.

This beautifully detailed robe à la française was worn by Michelle Pfeiffer as Madame de Tourvel in Dangerous Liaisons. It was used again in the 1992 production of Last of the Mohicans, where it was worn by Jodhi May as the character Alice Munro.

Costume Commentary

  1. I worked on the film…. in the “Settlers” or “European” shop (as opposed to the “Indian” shop) Several gowns from “Dangerous Liaisons” were brought in to put on extras in Albany before James Acheson had his name taken off the project. (that’s a whole ‘nother story!) This gown is made from very expensive Italian silk. It was a la francaise originally, but on “Mohicans, the back pleats were stab stitched to the lining, and the skirt cut off(!) to make doubles of the bodice.
