About the Costume

This costume was designed by Walter Plunkett for Cammie King as Bonnie Blue Butler in the 1939 film Gone with the Wind. It was used again by Carol Nugent as Veronica in the 1947 film Green Dolphin Street, for which Plunkett also designed the costumes. The outfit was modified for its use in Green Dolphin Street – the feathers and bows being removed and replaced.

The outfit, complete with muff and hat was purchased off the rack during MGM’s major auction in 1970. It was later sold at auction by Bonhams in 2008, where it sold for $9,000. Bonham’s Lists the costume as:

A small jacket made of nubby black, gray, and white wool with a collar, a four button front closure and two waist-flaps together with a matching hat and muff… the jacket’s original buttons appear to have been switched and the hat’s royal blue ribbon was changed to a gray one which is still attached. An inside cloth tag with handwritten note in black fountain pen ink reads “Carol Nugent 1394.”
