Following the great response to my piece The Dresses of Titanic, I have decided to look at the various other outfits and items that Rose (Kate Winslet) wears in Titanic.
The character of Rose always looks amazingly glamorous during the three-hour long film, showcasing early 20th Century fashion among rich, upper-class females.
As the clothing below contains a mixture of items, they won’t be ranked in my personal order of least to most favourite, but rather in the order which they appear in the film.
A stunning aspect of the outfit from when we first meet young Rose. We see this hat before her face; a fabulous screen entrance.
Very frilly for a nightgown. Almost seems as if it would be uncomfortable to wear in bed!
The Heart of the Ocean; one of the most famous items in the film, which links Rose on the Titanic to Rose in the present day. Based on the famous Hope Diamond.
Butterfly Hair Comb
Another famous item from the film, which we see Rose wear alongside her daytime outfits. A simple but effective accessory.
A nightgown which contains more coverage, and allows Rose to sit with her fiancé and amongst their staff without exposing too much for 1912 society!
A long corset, as was fashionable during the time. In the original script, it was going to be Rose (Kate Winslet) lacing up the corset of her mother Ruth (Frances Fisher).
One of the darker items of clothing which Rose wears. The long, kimono robe is worn before Jack draws Rose.
The pink coat doesn’t appear for long on screen, but it certainly does make an impression. It perfectly matches the dress it is worn with, and was designed to be larger than Kate Winslet’s frame, to aid in making her appear trapped as the sinking begins.
