About the Costume

There was a fair amount of press surrounding the 1956 film Diane, starring Lana Turner, with costumes by Walter Plunkett. Turner was photographed next to many of Plunkett’s creations for publicity for the film. Despite the film’s large budget, many costumes were still taken from earlier productions. This particular dress, also designed by Plunkett, originated in the 1953 film Young Bess on Kathleen Byron as Ann Seymour. It was used again in Diane three years later on an uncredited actress as a lady in waiting to Catherine de Medici.
