The Finale - Back in New York
(Spoilers! - click here to go straight to Ann's finale gown and
ignore this page.)
Peter Jackson's King Kong separates from the other version in how the
final scenes in New York play out between Ann and her companions from the
ship. As such Ann's costume is a bit different than expected.
Ann's Finale Costumes Index
Carl Denham stand on stage before hundreds of people. He tells
"his" tale of the capture of Kong and then presents a twisted stage show
with history rewritten. The natives are comical, a homage to the
original, the leading man becomes the hero, and the blond beauty is
sacrificed to King Kong in a long white evening gown! Except in this
version, the girl introduced as Ann, is not even the real Ann.. just one
more fake in Carl's show.
(no pictures yet)
Fake Beauty wears a beautiful form fitting full length hwhite evening gown --
just like you'd expect Kong's Beauty to wear. It is sleeveless but she
wears full opera length gloves. The back of the neck is accented with
a separate draped scarf, making it at first appear that the back is cowl
necked, just like Ann's.
She wears elaborate rhinestone earrings, 2 parts both diamond shaped.
Draped low around her waist is a gold chain belt. Extra chain loops
decoratively down from the main belt.
Back in New York, we first see Ann at her dressing table wrapped in a
tie-wrap dressing robe... and assume she is prepping for Carl's grand
show.... not to dance in the chorus in a smaller NY theater.
|Beauty shot, at the dressing table.
Not sure if this shot is through the mirror or inverted.
||Very low rez. This is as much as we
see of the dressing robe
Ann's costume is covered by a silk-satin dressing robe. It tie
wraps across the front. Colors are very hard to tell. Look like
a dark silver/grey with a blue tone. The collar, white or cream.
(Note collar is a band/facing down the front of the robe.) Assumption
that the robe a 3/4 or full length so it covers the dress, but actually
unknown. We just see her putting on her jewelry at the dressing
She wears a very large rhinestone hair clip. It is asymmetrical, a
large center with 5 bigger stones circling half of it. The stage
costume includes white opera length gloves and a large white marabou feather
Her pieced earrings are a diamond shape crystal - clean center with the
edges faceted. The jewelry is removed before she leaves the
theater to find King Kong.
