About the Costume

This pretty costume has been around for quite a while, having been designed and created for Francesca Annis’ performance as Lillie Langtry in the wonderful 1978 mini-series Lillie. The gown was used again in the 1984 American mini-series Ellis Island, where Faye Dunaway wore it as Maude Charteris. Finally, it was seen a third time in the 2001 film Original Sin, worn by Angelina Jolie as Julia Russell. Each time the gown has undergone some minor adjustments – with the trim being for Ellis Island and removed again for Original Sin.

The costume went up for auction in October 2014 at Heritage Auctions, but did not sell. You can see the listing here. The auction house describes the dress as follows:

This elegant costume is comprised of a long creme and black lace gown with black velvet accents, and rose-colored lace at the sleeves and bust-line, a black lace padded corset with boning reinforcement and hook and loop front and lace-up back.
