Anna Karenina 1997 - Costumes

Reposting:  There was so much interest in the "Day at the Races - Anna Karenina" post, that I thought to bring this post back for another review for everyone.  Enjoy!

There was a new adaptation of "Anna Karenina" recently released.  They are going to be hard pressed to rival the gowns from the 1997 rendition.  These are just two gowns of the many that were showcased in that movie, and each one is a work of art.  Make sure you open the "detail" picture to truly appreciate the amount of workmanship that went into each gown.   Of the dozens of gowns used, each was just as detailed as these.  Plus, the main Ball scene, when they dance the Swan Lake Waltz, is classic!

  1. I love the ball scene, even the dust ruffles are beautiful.

  2. It is one of my favorite ball scenes. If you watch it from the beginning, when Kitty runs down the hallway, she stops at the entrance to the ball, and there is a servant there to bend and hand her her train so she can dance! One of my all time favorite costumed movies.
