Costumes In Movies: Atonement

Costume designer Jacqueline Durran was nominated for an Academy Award for her work in Atonement, a film set in 1930-40s England. All of the costumes were stunning, well thought out and certainly made for unforgettable film. 

Most famous was that figure-hugging, dark green, bias-cut, backless, chemise dress worn by Kiera Knightley, which captured the fairytale fantasy for a contemporary woman or girl. InStyle UK magazine readers voted the green dress the Best Costume in Film History, even beating out iconic mainstays such as Marilyn Monroe’s razor-pleated white dress from the Seven Year Itch and Scarlett O’Hara’s “curtains gown” from Gone with the Wind
