Spotted by Gail Carriger a Norman Norell Dress in How to Marry a Millionaire


So I spotted this dress in How to Marry a Millionaire (yes I recognize all the issues with this movie but I can't help but love it, mostly for the clothing). And then it showed up in one of the fashion blogs I follow and I was like, hey is that the SAME dress?

As you can see the fit is not quite the same, perhaps he redesigned it for her and for the screen, or perhaps this is a knock off? Also the sleeves look shorter. I checked the net and couldn't find anything on this dress in this movie.

Watch That Costume Flick with Gail Carriger! The Pallisers


Made a long time ago some of the acting, set direction and such are a little awkward and slow but the costumes in The Pallisers stand the test of time. I kind of love them.

Like my other favorite Victorian series melodrama (The Forsythe Saga) the costumes in this mini series cover from early to late Victorian, but as ever my favorite is the late 1870s-1880s.

Here are some of my favorites from the series.
