I adore this film. I recently rewatched it and I had forgotten how impressive this film is visually. Sandy Powell’s costumes are devine. I love what she has done with Cate Blanchett’s character Katherine Hepburn. That mixture of masculinity and femininity.
This gold and yellow embellished gown is probably the most recognised outfit from this light-hearted musical (I am not surprised considering the scale of the feathered headpiece). The detailing on this dress is incredible, it must have taken hours upon hours to embellished it all - and to to great effect, it looks as if she is wearing pure gold. Irene Sharaff was nominated for an Oscar for her creations!
