About the Costume

Walter Plunkett designed this stunning and unforgettable gown for Vivien Leigh’s portrayal of Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind. When the film premiered in Atlanta in December of 1939, it was no small affair. Margaret Palmer, a Junior Leaguer whose measurements were the closest to Vivien Leigh’s, was loaned the gown to wear to lead the grand march for the Gone With the Wind ball. The photo of her above was taken the next day during Gone With the Wind Atlanta Premier Events in Grant Park as she viewed the Cyclorama painting of The Battle of Atlanta, alongside Captain Rhett Butler himself, Clark Gable.
