[The Young Victoria. 2009]
I loved Emily Blunt in this role; but I confess, I loved her costumes even more!
Costume designer Sandy Powell (the same lady who designed THE blue dress in Cinderella) earned her 3rd Oscar and second BAFTA award for this film. •
I thought the purple dress at the start of this post particularly gorgeous as did, it seems, the designer herself.
Sandy Powell: "This is one of my favorite Victoria costumes, I like its simplicity and the unusual cornflower blue color which works well with the irises in the headdress and is also very flattering. It's made from silk with original antique blonde lace around the neck and shoulders."
Over 50 costumes were made for Victoria (40 for Albert), some of which are reused in Cinderella. Have a look and see if you can spot them.
