About the Costume

While not many gowns were made for the production of Henry VIII, the ones for Helena Bonham Carter were made specifically for her to disguise the fact that she was several months pregnant. It looks very similar to a gown worn by Natalie Dormer in The Tudors. Dormer wore several other gowns that Bonham Carter wore, so it would not be out of the realm of possibility that the pink gown was reused. The pleating, however, looks somewhat different, and it’s not believed that these two pieces are the same, though they share some striking similarities.

Costume Commentary

  1. Natalie’s Dress is Gathered at the waist, where as Helena’s is box pleated. Also, if it was made for someone pregnant to hind that fact, wouldn’t it wrinkel funny on someone else?

  2. I’m almost positive this isn’t the same gown-not only is it plum colored, but if you look at better pictures you can see that there’s a ton of trim added on the bodice and some on the sleeves-plus Natalie’s dress doesn’t have a forepart
