About the Costume

This incredible gown was made for Jill Baker’s portrayal of Lady De Lesseps in the 1998 movie Shakespeare In Love. The dress was seen again in the 2000 David Starkey documentary Elizabeth: The Acclaimed Saga of England’s Virgin Queen, where it was worn by Karen Archer as Queen Elizabeth I. The 2005 mini-series The Virgin Queen saw the dress worn again by Tara Fitzgerald as Kat Ashley, and the following year it was used for the cover of a re-issue of the 1951 Jean Plaidy novel Madame Serpent. Actress Donna Henry was the last person to be seen in the costume when she played Anne of Denmark in 2011’s The King James Bible: The Book That Changed The World.

Costume Commentary

  1. The Italian Woman – Jean Plaidy, next book to “Madame Serpent”, up here…

    Perhaps we didn’t notice it before because it was photoshopped into yellow… But the pattern in the bodice is quite particular…

  2. And Anne of Denmark’s necklace (“King James’ Bible…”) it was also seen in:
    Kelly McDonald as Isabel Knollys in “Elizabeth” (1998)
    Joanne King as Jane Boleyn in “The Tudors”
    “The Queen’s Fool”, by Philippa Gregory.
    “Innocent Traitor”, by Alison Weir.

  3. This costume appears in another novel by Jean Plaidy, besides “Madame Serpent”. This one belongs to the Stuart saga, and it’s called “The Murder in the Tower” (of course, it is the re-issue of a novel written in 1956)… It is enough to take a look to the bodice to make sure that it is actually the same gown…

  4. also to be seen on the actress portaying anne of denmark/ king james’ wife in the documentary “the king james’ bible – the book that changed the world” from 2011.
