Emma (1996) Movie Gowns
Where it is about the gowns and not the Gals!

I just love the movie adaptations of Jane Austen's work.
Here is my tribute to the beautiful and sometimes realistic gowns and accessories of one those adaptations.
(Click on a thumbnail for larger view.)

 


Emma


 

Pink Archery dress. I love this

scene and therefore the dress.

Here is the sleeve detail.

She wears it painting. Another

sleeve detail. Another view.

And here is the back.

Is she wearing clocked stockings?

Long sleeve day dress. Here is the sleeve

Here is the back.

Ball gown. Here is the back

(the color and print

show well there).

Beige plaid day dress.

Here is the side.

Blue long sleeve day dress.

I think I will try to replicate it. Here is the sleeve detail.

I am sure this is different

than the blue striped

one below.

Light blue day dress

with short sleeves.

Here is the back.

Meet the Eltons green day dress.

Light day dress with tiny

pink flowers (??)

I giggle whenever

I see the hats in

this photo. I wonder

if it was staged that way.

The umbrellas are here.

Cross over bodice day dress.

Here is a long view.

"Daisy" dress. I think this

is the same dress.

 

Dinner dress.

Here is the back.

This is the best I can

do for a long shot.

Drape. Here is the back.

I think she is wearing the

blue long sleeve day dress.

Here is her reticule.

Engagement dress.

Here she is in the church.

Here is the back

Look at the sleeve. Ah! here is a good long view.

Evening gown.

Here is the back.

White day dress with green print.

Gray cape. Here she is

with Miss Bates.

This looks like a green bodice with a light colored skirt. The shawl is pretty.

day dress underneath.

Christmas dress.

Here is the back.

Love John, hate John dress with sheer over jacket. Here is the back.

Too bad you only see

it for a few seconds.

 up from the Costume

Museum in Bath.

Poncho or shawl.

Here is the back. I think the dress in the second and third pictures is the "Love John, hate John" dress.

on her face matches the painting

on the wall. I think this is

the same one. Here is the sleeve.

Red evening gown.

Longer view.

Back here. Here is

 the shawl she

wears with it.

I think she has.

Yellow and white striped

day dress. Here is the sleeve. Here is the back. You can see her hat

well in these photos.

 

Beautiful wedding gown.

Side view. Sigh.  

 

Whew! That girl's wardrobe wore me out. She rarely wears the same thing twice.

If you see a mistake (one dress listed as two or that I am missing one, please let me know.) Half of Highbury must be her closet!


Harriet


 

Pretty pink ball gown.

Here is a long

view and another.

Long sleeve day dress. I think it is the same one she wears during the attack. See it here and the sleeve.

See the Bates dress.  The collar

looks silly on a young girl.

See the sleeve here.

and another.

is sort of the back.

I wish we could see more

of this evening dress.

read the riddle. Here is a long view. Is Harriet so ready for marriage she wears a cap already? I think this is the same dress just with a

plaid blanket or apron.

Classically inspired ball gown.

The back is more complicated

than I first thought.

 

Greek inspired

evening gown.

Green pelisse and hat.

This picnic dress is one of the

few "soft" outfits she

seems to have. Everything else is full of lines and angles. Check out the parasol behind her.

Here is an example

of sharp lines and

angles. Here is the

back and the sleeve.

Hat. I think this is

 the same as the red

dress to the left.
