About the Costume

This lovely lavender gown has quite a long history! While many costumes from the 1977 production Crossed Swords were recycled from earlier productions (Anne of the Thousand Days, for example), this pretty gown was created for Felicity Dean as Lady Jane Grey. Oona Kirsh next wore the dress as Anne Boleyn in the 1986 God’s Outlaw, where gold trim was added to the edge of the sleeves, and a decorative piece was added to the front of the bodice. From there, it went on to be used on several book covers, including the 1987 The Queen’s Command by Maggie Osborne, 2001’s The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory, and a 2003 re-issue of 1999’s Mary, Bloody Mary by Carolyn Meyer. It’s likely that the photographs all originated from the same photo shoot. In 2003 the costume was worn by Emilia Fox as Jane Seymour in Henry VIII. The next time it was spotted was in the 2007 first season of The Tudors on an extra before finally being used in 2009 on the cover of a novel by Leanda De Lisle entitled The Sisters Who Would Be Queen.

Costume Commentary

  1. The cover of “The Other Boleyn Girl” is the same in the edition for Italy, Germany, Argentina, Netherlands… so I think it doesn’t count like a recycled costume, does it?
