About the Costume

It’s always interesting when a costume is not just recycled and found two or three times, but when it is found again and again, numerous times over the years. This red striped dress has been in use in film and television for over thirty years now and has been seen at least ten times.

The first known usage for the gown was in 1985 on Sarah Finch as Arabella Allen in The Pickwick Papers. Next, it was used in 1994 on Lynda Bellingham as Mrs.Lupin in a production of Martin Chuzzlewit. It was used again in 1994 on an extra in Middlemarch. It was seen in 1999 in Wives and Daughters on Justine Waddell as Molly Gibson, then in 2003 on Carolyn Pickles as Mrs. Dickens in Hans Christian Anderson: My Life As a Fairy Tale.  In 2005 it was seen on Jemma Redgrave as Mary Arnold in Tom Brown’s Schooldays, and then in 2008 on Emma Pierson as Fanny Dorrit in Little Dorrit. In 2012 the gown was spotted in Confessions of a Child of the Century on Charlotte Gainsbourg as Brigitte. In 2014 the costume was worn by an extra in Mr.Turner, and most recently it was seen on Olivia Cooke as Becky Sharp in the 2018 Vanity Fair.
