About the Costume

Costume designer Irene Sharaff is well known for her beautiful work in films such as West Side Story, Cleopatra, Meet Me in St.Louis, and many others. She worked in both film and theatre, and in 1952 she won the Tony Award for best costume design for Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I. In 1956 she went on to design the costumes for 20th Century Fox’s film version of The King and I, which also won Sharaff the Academy Award for best costume design.

This lovely striped dress was first worn by Deborah Kerr as Anna Leonowens in 1956 in The King and I. The 1972 television show Anna and the King tried to utilize original costumes from The King and I whenever possible. Kerr’s striped gown appeared again on Samatha Eggar as Anna Leonowens. The dress seems primarily unchanged, aside from the bow around the collar.
