About the Costume

The 18th century costumes for the 2008 film The Duchess were designed by Michael O’Connor.  This embellished peach robe à la française was worn by Keira Knightley as Georgiana Cavendish née Spencer, Duchess of Devonshire, though we do not get a good view of it, as the character is seated the entire time the gown appears.

In 2012, the Danish film A Royal Affair recycled costumes from both Marie Antoinette and The Duchess, a fact confirmed by the film’s director, Nikolaj Arcel.  The peach gown from The Duchess was worn on Alicia Vikander as Caroline Mathilde, and we are given a better look at the detailing on the lower half of the gown.
