This two piece dress was worn by Helena Bonham Carter as Elizabeth, Victor Frankenstein’s ill-fated fiancée. The decorative stomacher and borders to the skirt are made from original pieces attached to new fabric, embroidered in metallic thread and pale silks.
The first of two appearances by the 1934 Boris Karloff/Bela Lugosi horror The Black Cat, taken from the Poe story. This is the "Style D" one-sheet, which went for $286,800 in 2007. Look at those cat's eyes!
