At the time of my visit to Chawton Cottage on Jane Austen's birthday, there was a special display of costumes from the BBC adaptation of Emma (2009) to celebrate 200 years of Emma. It was lovely to see the costumes so close up and imagine how they would have looked on the actors.
These pretty day dresses were worn by Romola Garai who played Emma in the film.
Here's a gorgeous ball gown worn by Garai.
This less fancy looking but still pretty gown was worn by Laura Pyper who played Jane Fairfax.
This day outfit was worn by Johnny Lee Miller (Mr Knightley). I apologise for the poor quality of the picture!
Which one is your favourite? I am partial to Emma's beautiful pink ball gown, but no surprise there!
