Sense and Sensibility- Marianne and Brandon
Costumes worn in Sense and Sensibility, by Kate Winslet as Marianne and Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon.
Costumes were designed by Jenny Beavan and John Bright, who were nominated for an Academy Award and BAFTA.
The dress is Marianne’s trained wedding dress- exquisite detailing! Beading and metallic lace trims, and rhinestones scattered all over. The overdress has a fine layer of tulle over it.
Presumably it’s the metallic embroidery that keeps the neck opening stiff?
