Pride and Prejudice: a Victorian Romance

As the most classic masterpiece of Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice reveals the living condition and emotional life of the young ladies in the countryside of England in the 19th century. The story is truly classic and attractive. There are a lot of movie versions of this novel too. That was the part that I was very interested in.



These are the costumes from the latest Pride and Prejudice movie. Compared with the earlier versions, the costumes in this one tends to be much more modern and easy to wear while the earlier version seems to be more close to the historic facts. Instead of the tight corsets or pannier, the newest version costumes are more easy to wear with the fine fabric and simple design. On one side, the whole design is very appropriate in a way that it reveals the free quality of Elizabeth. On the other side, it is kind of off the age a little bit as the costumes are a little too modern.
