Fox costume
I've just discovered that this print of the German fashion magazine Journal des Luxus und der Moden of June 1791 is very similar to the fox costume:

"Please put out Her Grace's hair."
The last still in date : I really like it, and it's a new dress :)

Don't forget to look at the Costumersguide.com for the bazillions of new stills out since the last time I post.

There are and handfull of reviews out :
Scotland on sunday,
Entertainment Wise,
Time out,
Channel 4,
Future Movies,
Sunday Times (critical and interesting),
The Telegraph (Keira s too thin for you to listen to her lines... huh ?),
The guardian ("All of it murmurs "England", and the whole thing is so excessively English that I half-expected the usherette to check my National Trust membership card at any moment."),
Timesonline(butcher criticism at his funniest : "Facing Fiennes, the junior cast, like lambs to the slaughter, go to pieces. Knightley gives great profile (just as she gave great close-up in Edge of Love); Dominic Cooper plays her lover, Charles Grey, as a one-note automaton; while Haley Atwell’s strumpet Bess is wonderful at saucy stares but struggles with the spoken word. In short, Fiennes: 4, Kids: Nil.").

And last, there are videos : scenes from the movie :

In bed with Charles GreyCollapse )

Cut out of her wedding dress by the Duke (yes, she's sewn into it)Collapse )

Discovering that she's having a marriage à troisCollapse )

Flirting with Grey at the electionCollapse )

Her Grace's Great Moment of Loneliness in the Middle of Diner, or, C. Grey is a bratCollapse )

and the last one, "Empress of Fashion" is available on the page of the npr review

Did I mention it ?
The vogue article (see previous post) mentionned that she had 27 outifs in all. We are far from the 65+ dress in Marie-Antoinette.

I count that we have seen 23 dresses (including one dressing gown and one cloak) for the moment.
3:24 pm
Amanda Foreman's articles (+ Vogue)
Amanda Foreman, the author of the biography on which the film is based, went to the filming and wrote a personnal account of it. There are tiny pictures of what seem to be the stripes dress (when she's wandring outside with Bess and the kids).

Also, I would really like it if someone could scan the article she wrote for Vogue about the movie adaptation. Not the following article by Lucy Moore.

(I'm sorry, I forget to note on which keira knightley site I downloaded this article.)

I'm talking of the article from which this excerpt is quoted (via The Duchess of Devonshire Gossip Guide)

"What did incense me, however, was the script's seeming obsession with making Georgiana appear like Paris Hilton: spoiled, self-promoting, and cretinously stupid...A few months later another version arrived. This time, Georgiana had graduated from Paris, the showoff Party Girl, to Britney, the Bodice-Ripping Boozer whose downward spiral had the whiff of tragicomedy."
1:17 am
Several things :
_ Two new stills

_ three little videos, if have not already seen them. they can be found here, at Sweet-keira.net. There is two featurettes (with costumes) and one scene of the movie (in bed with grey, no costume)
BEWARE, the video format is *.flv. It will not play directly. you have to download it. It may be labelled *.flv.txt. remov the .txt and it should work (if you have the good player. I use VLC, but it can be really instable. at your own risks)

_ The Duchess section of the costumersguide has been considerably updated, with all the new stills and screecaptures of the site. Good job padawansguide !

some babbling about costumes used several times in the movie, with picturesCollapse )
