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.
