About the Costume

Cecil Beaton designed this mint green and mocha-colored ball gown for use in the 1964 film adaptation of My Fair Lady, where it was worn by an extra attending the Embassy Ball. The dress made a blink and you’ll miss it appearance on an extra in the beloved 1980 film Somewhere in Time

The dress was auctioned by Profiles in History (now defunct, having partnered with Heritage Auctions) in 2016, but it went unsold. It was one of several specialty My Fair Lady lots released directly from the Warner Brothers Archive, so it was likely sent back to them after the auction.

The auction describes the gown as follows:

Consisting of a mocha and mint green satin floor-length gown with lattice lace short sleeves, an overlay of floral lace to body, a large integral bias bow at the waist, a falling train formed by two flowing hoops of gradient satin streamers that transition from mocha to green, with hook and eye back closure. Retaining Warner Bros. Pictures Inc. bias label. Worn by a background performer in the lavish Embassy Ball scene. Exhibiting tearing to lace overlay and fading to satin in areas. In production used very good condition. Accompanied by an original Warner Bros. Studios Certificate of Authenticity.
