About the Costume

This gown was made for the 1998 movie Elizabeth by costume designer Alexandra Byrne, whose designs were nominated for an Academy Award. However, it was her work on the film’s sequel, The Golden Age, which would win her the Oscar. 

In the original movie, Cate Blanchett wore this beautiful dress as Queen Elizabeth I. The gown was used again for the David Starkey documentary Elizabeth: The Acclaimed Saga of England’s Virgin Queen. This time the part of Queen Elizabeth I was played by Imogen Slaughter. The collar was removed from the gown to give it a different look. The costume was used a third time in HBO’s Elizabeth I by Lady Essex, played by Diana Kent. The dress does not fit Diana Kent properly, so a layer of decorative fabric has been added beneath the front closure to compensate. It was also covered with a jacket, so only the sleeves and a bit of the front are visible. These changes to the gown can be seen more clearly in Showtime’s first season of The Tudors in 2007, where you can see it being worn by Natalie Dormer as Anne Boleyn. Several years later, it made yet another appearance in the 2010 film The Princess of Montpensier on an extra.
