  1. Hats, FTW! I love all the hats in this movie. Alas, I don’t have a “hat head” as my mom would say (too pointy). :)

  2. With regard to Margaret’s black sash, it’s reported on IMDb that it’s a microphone pack. Although it also appears in the scene where she is playing swords with Edward, so I don’t think it is. I do find it strange that it buckles in the back.

  3. Oh, y’all, my heart is melting. I love to hit IMDB and play the “where are they now?” game. The actress who played Margaret grew up and became an academic, journalist and documentary maker – she’s now Dr. Myriam François – and I am so proud of her work!

    1. I feel like that’s exactly what Margaret Dashwood would have become if she lived in the 21st century. She had such a small part, but such vitality!

  4. It occurred to me that Margaret has basically exactly the same hairstyle that Kirsten Dunst did as Claudia in Interview with the Vampire (which same out a year earlier). Looked it up on IMDB and sure enough, both movies had the same chief hair stylist, Jan Archibald. I guess that’s just what she pictures little girl hair of the period looking like! I’d be curious now to see if she re-used the style (or something similar) in any other movies.

    1. For whatever it’s worth, one of my nieces has hair that is naturally like Margaret’s.

  5. I don’t know about my favorite dresses, but I could hear every line of Imelda Staunton’s dialogue while looking at these pics.

  6. I think the two cream robes are different – the sleeves are different. The first one has elbow-length sleeves worn with knit gloves or armwarmers, it looks like to me.

  7. Again, one of the biggest issues is that there isn’t enough white. In the 1790s and early 1800s, there were a lot of white dresses worn, usually with the accessories providing the bright colors. I’ll give a pass to Margaret, who is a child (although, technically, she should be in mourning for her father, and she isn’t), but the others (except for Mrs. Dashwood, Elinor, and Marianne, who should actually start off in black, for mourning) need to be wearing a lot more white.

  8. Charlotte’s outfits appear to show off her bosom. Well, a bit of ladylike flaunting may have helped secure her a husband.

    Courting couples were allowed little time alone together. To preserve propriety, of course. But, perhaps, to prevent an eligible gentleman from realizing the blushing maiden was a silly goose.

    Hugh Laurie, Charlotte’s long suffering husband, comes to mind.

    And Mr and Mrs Bennett from P&P….
