About the Costume

The costume, initially designed by Jenny Beavan for Sienna Miller, made its debut in the 2005 film Casanova, where Miller portrayed the character Francesca Bruni. It was then reused in En kongelig affære (A Royal Affair) by Alicia Vikander, who played Caroline Mathilde. Finally, the costume appeared in the first season of Poldark in 2015, worn by Sally Dexter as Mrs. Chynoweth.

Over the years, the gown, which Cosprop owns, has been displayed in various exhibitions. One notable exhibition called Cinematic Couture showcased original costumes from films like Ever After, Onegin, Miss Potter, and Becoming Jane.

In 2024, the gown was put up for auction by Kerry Taylor Auctions as part of their “Lights Camera Auction,” which featured costumes from Cosprop. The auction house provided a description of this piece:

This elegant gown, designed by Jenny Beavan and labeled by Cosprop with the actor’s name, is a replica of a 1750s-style robe a l’anglaise. It is made of blue and gold silk woven with floral patterns and adorned with gold lace rosettes and lace cuffs. The front bodice features a tasseled bow. The costume also includes a black cotton bustle pad, labeled by Cosprop, with approximate measurements of 86cm (34in) bust and 61cm (24in) waist.

This costume was worn in the masquerade ball scene. Designer Jenny Beavan said of the gown:

“The 18th century is a very flattering period for women, and you can move with ease in the corsets if they are properly fitted! I used this shade of blue a lot on Sienna / Francesca, but this dress is the grandest version of it. Characters ‘find’ their colors in my world. As I said, I am very instinctive and tend not to overthink things … having done the research and seen what the Art Dept, Camera, etc. are up to so, we are all on the same page. A good film normally has great teamwork behind as well as in front of the camera.”
