Costume Commentary

  1. Tht doesn’t look like the same gown 0 it looks like someone saw teh first gown and made a copy. The proportions of frills and neckline etc seem different to my eye.

    • It’s really astounding, sometimes, how costumes are altered for later projects, and James usually has insider information about his submissions. 🙂
