About the Costume

This lovely gown was designed by Margaret Furse, whose creations for the 1969 movie Anne of the Thousand Days won an Oscar for best costume design.

This piece was worn by Valerie Gearon in the role of Mary Boleyn, and then again in 1971 in the excellent mini-series Elizabeth R, where it was worn slightly altered with a neck ruff and new trimming around the bodice by an uncredited extra playing as a lady in waiting. The third time it was seen was on Frances White as a courtier in the 1971 film Mary, Queen of Scots, which also had costumes by Margaret Furse, and she used several of her creations from Anne of the Thousand Days in the production. The gown was further altered, giving it a different, even more elaborate neck ruff. The dress made a fourth appearance in the 1979 filming of The Famous History of the Life of King Henry the Eighth, where it was worn by an extra as a lady in waiting. The previous alterations appear to have been removed, returning to its original form seen in Anne of the Thousand Days.
