About the Costume

This beautiful gown was designed by Margaret Furse for Geneviève Bujold as Anne Boleyn in the 1969 film Anne of the Thousand Days. The gown was used again in the 1970 Vincent Price horror film, Cry of the Banshee, where it was spotted being worn by Essy Persson for her performance as Lady Patricia Whitman. The following year the costume was worn by Barbara Windsor as Bettina in Carry on Henry, where trim has been added to the front of the bodice and around the waist. Emily Blunt wore the costume as Katherine Howard in the 2003 Henry VIII, though by this point, the gown was in very poor condition and barely recognizable. At some point, the dress went on to be used in a photo shoot, the photographs from which went on to be used on the covers of no less than five novels. The first of these book covers was the 2006 re-issue of the 1961 Jean Plaidy novel Katherine, The Virgin. The next was the 2007 The Sixth Wife by Suzannah Dunn. Suzannah Dunn found a use for the outfit a second time on the cover of her 2008 novel, The Queen of Subtleties. The next book to have the costume appear on the cover was 2009’s Queen of Silks by Vanora Bennett. Finally, 2010 found it featured on the cover of the 2010 re-issue of the 1981 Cynthia Harrod novel, The Dark Rose.

Costume Commentary

  1. Hey, check this!! The re-issue of Jean Plaidy’s “Uneasy Lies the Head” also features this dress! I know, I know, the cover doesn’t show it…

    Check the back cover, it’s the criss-cross thing in the bodice.

  2. Hey, guys, check this!
    After 44 years since it was first made for “Anne of the Thousand Days”, this dress is still around. Check Philippa Gregory’s newest novel, “The White Princess”!!

  3. Hi everyone!! I’ve collected all your contribution in this one… And they’re all book covers! Check, they are: 
    “The Betrayal”, by Mary Hooper (“La trahison”, in French, has the same cover) 
    “A Sexta Mulher”, by Suzannah Dunn (“The Sixth Wife”, in Portuguese)
    “Beauty Sleep”, by Cameron Dokey
    “The Constant Princess”, by Philippa Gregory (Polish edition)
    “The Queen’s Rival”, by Diane Haeger (where it appears photoshopped in blue)
    “Virgin Widow”, by Anne O’Brien

    Mostly, it is the same shoot, with variations…

  4. I think this dress wins the award for most book cover appearences…

    Oh, here are two more by the way…besides the thousand I’ve emailed in the past. XD
    There is a reason why I call this the stalker dress. It’s everywhere!

  5. This dress is used on the cover of “The Queen’s Rival; In the Court of Henry VIII” by Diane Haeger. It is the same picture thatShari mentioned was for the Australian cover of The Virgin Widowbut it has beencropped and the background was changed to a garden setting. Also this time the dress is photo shopped light blue.
