Netherfield Butler: A Mrs. Bennet, a Miss Bennet, a Miss Bennet and a Miss Bennet, sir. Caroline Bingley: Oh for heaven's sake, are we to receive every Bennet in the country? - Pride & Prejudice (2005) #janeausten #joewright
“I find empire line dresses are very ugly, so I did some research. Although the novel was published in 1813, Jane Austen wrote her first draft of “Pride and Prejudice”, then called “First Impressions”, around 1797. So we used the fashions of the earlier period, where the waist on dresses was lower and more flattering." Joe Wright, on the costumes for his 2005 version of "Pride and Prejudice"
