This green Edwardian gown was created by costume designer Alexandra Byrne for the film Finding Neverland, where it was worn on Radha Mitchell as Mary Ansell Barrie. Bryne’s designs for the film were nominated for an Academy Award, and though she did not win, she would go on to win several years later for Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
The gown, accented with gold starbursts, was used again twice in 2009 on extras in Coco Before Chanel and Chéri. It was most widely seen in 2010 when it was used on Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary in the first season of Julian Fellow’s Downton Abbey. It was used a fifth time in the 2012 BBC mini-series Parade’s End on Rebecca Hall as Sylvia Tietjens.
