Golden Breakfast Dress
Ann's first appears with the crew is at breakfast... and she vastly
overdresses thrilled to be wearing one of the costumes for Carl's movie - a
lovely yellow silk print tea dress accented with rhinestones.
There are basically 3 costume variations of this dress. The golden yellow one she
wears in the breakfast scene, the original "autumn" version in the cut scene
and the pastel pink "tweaked" version for blond actress in Jack's "Cry
The dresses are inspired by the 30's tea gowns. Naomi Watts loved
the dress. She chose to keep this one.
Chiffon Dress Index
Fabric: Sheer silk print with rhinestones accents. The chiffon
fabric is a golden yellow with a print of soft focus flowers, almost
watercolor style. Underlayer is light yellow chiffon fabric. A
triple rhinestone clip gathers each shoulder. There are also small
iron-on rhinestones decorating the shoulder area.
The two main identifying notes
|The back has a wide open rectangle. The top is fastened by a
clip closing the rectangle.|
|The shoulders are covered with a flutter of fabric. There are
glittering clips that narrow the shoulder straps in front about 2" down
from the shoulder.|
Just a couple of blurry shots for now.

this costume is. Note the wrap around neck scarf.

According to the Kong Production Diaries one of folks favorite dresses
for Ann was in a cut scene. When the breakfast scene was added, the
dress was redone and put in.

changed as well. There are not extra rhinestone bits around the
shoulder edges. All pics here are a bit blurry.

Cry Havoc Blond Stage Costume
A simpler variation of this dress is worn by the blond actress in who
starts in Jack Driscoll new play "Cry Havoc". This dress is a pastel
pink print. The fabrics are not as fine as the real dress and the
style is more simple in it's design... but it definitely is styled of the
dress in which Jack first sees Ann.
|Front of dress: the skirt is pleated
instead of being flowing gathers. Though hard to see here, the
neck and shoulders are somewhat the same. The sleeves have the
same loose flutter.
