About the Costume

It’s unusual to see examples of clothes on children reused in film. It’s even more unusual to find a piece reused on an infant. This Tudor Era inspired baby garment, complete with cap, was designed by costumer Walter Plunkett (Gone with the Wind, Singin’ in the Rain) for the 1953 MGM film Young Bess.  It appeared on an uncredited actress as the baby Elizabeth Tudor.  Plunkett would go on to use the piece again in the 1956 film Diane, where it was worn on another uncredited actor as Alexandre Édouard de France, the future King Henry III of France.
