Normally I am not excessively fond of yellow dresses, but there ARE some very pretty yellow Period Drama frocks and dresses.
First on the list is Queen Victoria's in 'Young Queen Victoria' of course. It is so... amazing. Just look. What an amazing piece of fabric. It's completely draped in lace and finery. Wow. I simply cannot have enough of this dress.
Another yellow dress which I am very fond of is Mrs Bank's one.
I love those little flowers all around the white bit. Yellow really suits Mrs Banks. When one thinks of her, one thinks of the colour yellow. (At least I do)
I have read somewhere that Jane Austen once said that her Pride and Prejudice heroine 'Elizabeth Bennet' had a favourite colour, which was yellow. The makers of the movie probably didn't know this, because Lizzy doesn't really have a yellow dress.
However, there is a very pretty yellow dress in P&P, worn by Charlotte Lucas' younger sister, Maria Lucas.
I am really fond of this dress. I love the little white stars and the three yellow flowers across the front. I have always loved this dress and I always will.
Marianne Dashwood in the 2009 version of Sense and Sensibility also has a yellow dress. I am not very fond of this gown, but I like it all the same and here it is.
How could she fall in love with this Whilloughby? He looks like a rat. I'm sorry readers, but Whilloughby is supposed to be handsome.
Anyway... back to the yellow dress. I like it, but something lacks.
How on earth could I forget Emma's yellow gown! The gown she wears in best of all scenes --the kiss scene! I am in love with this gown. It is simple, but at the same time so, so pretty and dainty and fresh and light! Oh I WANT it!
Is there another yellow dress I have forgotten?
