Queen Victoria's Wedding Dress Rendering

Description supplied by the film's costume designer Sandy Powell:

This dress is closely based on the original wedding dress which I was able to see at Kensington Palace. The fabrics we used weren't as fine as the original dress and it took a long time to find a contemporary lace that was a good enough match to the original. Unfortunately the dress is seen only fleetingly in the film.
