About the Costume

Though most of the gowns for the BBC’s 2003 mini-series Henry VIII were rented, the wardrobes of both Queen Anne Boleyn and Katharine of Aragon were made especially for the production by Lucinda Wright.

This red velvet gown was created for Helena Bonham Carter, who was already several months pregnant and needed her costumes to try to disguise this fact. The dress was used again in 2008 in Showtime’s second season of The Tudors by Natalie Dormer, also playing the role of Anne Boleyn. The promotional image for The Tudors seems to have gone on to be used for the cover of a 2010 Elizabeth Norton novel entitled Margaret Beaufort. Fur trim was added to the gown when it was used for promotional photos for the 2013 documentary The Last Days of Anne Boleyn, where Tara Breathnach wore it as Anne Boleyn.

Interestingly, this dress also happened to be the inspiration for a doll. The promotional image from The Tudors was used to create the Madame Alexander Anne Boleyn doll!

Costume Commentary

  1. It actually looks as if it were made for Natalie! People forget though that quite a few of Anne’s costumes were made especially for the series,not all were reused.

  2. Hmm, I can’t find any submissions with regards to this dress from you. This submission first went up in August of last year, and the earliest I have from you is September…did you write in about the book cover or the doll, which were added later? I could perhaps have accidentally deleted an e-mail? I’d be happy to add a credit to you if you would like, of course! 🙂

  3. Interesting – did anyone else know that the book cover is actually the picture of Natalie Dormer just without the head (how appropriate, eh?)

  4. Natalie Dormer looks so regal! The Tudors series has such awesome costumes. I just wish the show didn’t focus on all their sexual exploits so much.

    It’s funny but when some of these pics are posted side by side, it reminds me of popular magazines which ask, “who wore it best?” and the answer to this one would have to be Natalie!
