About the Costume

This distinctive gown was most likely made for the film Washington Square in 1997, where Jennifer Jason Leigh wore it as Catherine Sloper. In 2004 it was seen again being worn by Jo Joyner as Fanny Thornton in North and South. The gown appears to have been altered between uses, with the fringe being cut down and some of the embellishments removed. The dress was next seen in the 2007 film Love in the Time of Cholera, where Catalina Sandino Moreno wore it as Hildebranda Sánchez.

Costume Commentary

  1. I believe now that the less-full version is put together in separate pieces that can be worn together or singly, which is why it is sometimes seen shorter than full-length. Here is a promo image from CHOLERA showing how short it is, with just the top tier of the skirt attached to the bodice:

    JJL wears the less-full version too! See this b&w promotional image from WashSq
    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm669096192/tt0120481

    The skirt is definitely less full, with much less fabric gathered into the waistline. It makes me wonder if the very full version was difficult to move in, so they made a duplicate with less fabric gathered into the waistline.

  2. I’m convinced there were actually two dresses, as suggested below, or perhaps only one bodice, but definitely two skirts. There are definitely two different skirts used in the film Love in the Time of Cholera: the less full skirt pictured above, and a more full skirt in the screencaps I’m adding to this message, taken during the scene when the women visit the Belgian photographer to have their picture taken. (See how the skirt looks as full as the one worn by Jennifer Jason Leigh?) Right after having her photo taken, Hildebranda Sanchez is seen walking through a very crowded street wearing the less-full version of the skirt.
