Liv Tyler as Tatyana in the film, Onegin
This dress wasn't included in the exhibition (but, I love it :)
The red dress above (upper left) is also from the film.

The costumes exhibited were made by COSPROP.


The exhibit was divided into 3 areas: "Section one [showed] costumes about historical figures such as Elizabeth I, Louis XIV, Thomas Jefferson, and [covered] the era from the 16th to 19th centuries. Also included in this section [were] costumes from Ever After, Dangerous Liaisons, and movies based on Jane Austen's books."

"Section two [displayed] costumes from classic literary movies set from 1827 to the late 19th century - such as Eugene Onegin, Portrait of a Lady, The Golden Bowl and more."

"Section three [progressed] into the 20th century with costumes from such films as Titanic, Evita, Room With a View, Gosford Park and others." - from Judy Mitchell's article http://www.alleycatscratch.com/exhibit/Fashion-In-Film.htm

One of the exhibition venues was the Winterthur Museum & Country Estate in Delaware.

Their website information about the 2007 exhibit includes short audio clips with information about some of the costumes.
