About the Costume

This Stuart-era gown is an excellent example of how the proper undergarments can affect the gown’s shape. The dress was first seen in the 2003 Charles ll: The Power & The Passion on Helen McCrory as Barbara Villiers, Lady Castlemaine. It was worn again in the 2011 Doctor Who episode, The Impossible Astronaut, where Henrietta Clemett wore it as Mathilda. Finally, Perdita Weeks wore it again as Elizabeth Pepys in the 2014 mini-series The Great Fire. However, proper foundation garments do not appear to have been used, losing the gown’s beautiful shape.
