Theda Bara ‘Madame Du Barry’ Gown (1917)

Profiles in History:

The 1917 Madame Du Barry, based on the Alexandre Dumas novel, starred Theda Bara as Jeanne Vauberniere, the milliner who eventually becomes the mistress of a king. Naturally, her costumes were exquisite, and the masterpiece of the lot was this amazingly beautiful gown, a silver, gold and blue creation that Theda treasured and kept in her Beverly Hills home for more than 45 years after the film’s release. The 90-year old gown is truly everything a French king’s mistress could have dreamed of, with ermine accents throughout, and survives in gloriously preserved very fine condition. Measures approx. 57 in. from floor to shoulder. From the Joan Craig Costume Archive of Theda Bara. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Joan Craig.
