My Fair Lady is the first movie I remember seeing at a cinema. I have always loved the extravagant gowns designed by Cecil Beaton, this one was inspired by Audrey’s dress at the Ambassador’s Ball: empire line with a beautiful beaded net overlay.

Another gown designed out of its time, it is not strictly an empire line early 1900s gown but a 1960s interpretation. White felt bats, silk chiffon and hand painted detail.
