About the Costume

Costume designer Alexandra Byrne created this green Edwardian gown for the film Finding Neverland, where Radha Mitchell wore it as Mary Ansell Barrie. Bryne’s designs for the film were nominated for an Academy Award, and though she did not win, she would go on to win several years later for Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

The gown, accented with gold starbursts, was used again twice in 2009 on extras in Coco Before Chanel and Chéri. It was most widely seen in 2010 when Michelle Dockery wore it as Lady Mary Crawley in the first season of Julian Fellow’s Downton Abbey. It was seen a fifth time in the 2012 BBC mini-series Parade’s End, when Rebecca Hall wore it as Sylvia Tietjens.

Costume Commentary

  1. hey. great finds. but huh? strange use of this lovely gown in coco before chanel. is the bare shoulder explained in the film? or is that just for fashion’s sake? but: either the embroidery is tarnished (and therefore probably made of true silver threads) or the exhibition gown is another example of the same design. notice the either golden or black embroideries. also: on the golden gown(s) the sunlike embroidery sits a tiny bit higher on the bodice.

    • There was a bit of rambunctious partying going on in that scene, so I assumed the dress had slipped down the shoulder and the unnamed character didn’t bother to pull it up! I suspect the lighting is what makes the embroidery look black on the mannequin. (Scroll down to the lower comments on this page to see another angle of the gown, on display.) As for how the sunburst sits on the bodice, I think it’s the way the under-gown is arranged beneath the over-gown on the mannequin.

  2. Parade’s End –
    Rebecca Hall as Sylvia Tietjens

    I’m wondering where this dress originated. Does someone know if it is actually one of Alexandra Byrne’s designs for “Finding Neverland”? Or does it come from a previous production?
