About the Costume

Joan Fontaine first wore this sweet little gown as the title character in the 1943 version of Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, Jane Eyre. The gown made another brief appearance on actress Jane Nigh as Tabby Wells in the 1946 film Dragonwyck, based on the book by Anya Seton.

The costume was designed by the Swiss-born designer René Eugène Hubert. He began his career designing costumes for theatre in France and Germany. His work so impressed the actress Gloria Swanson that she convinced him to move to Hollywood and become her personal designer. Over the years, he worked at Paramount, MGM, and Fox, specializing in period costumes. Some of his beautiful work can be seen on Vivien Leigh in That Hamilton Woman, Ingrid Bergman in Anastasia, and Linda Darnell in Forever Amber.
