Sunday: Character Costumes Highlight: Barbara Spooner - Period Drama Fashion Week

Our first character whose costumes I am highlighting is Barbara Spooner from Amazing Grace.

A little about Barbara
Barbara eventually becomes the wife of abolitionist William Wilberforce. They found that they had their opposition to slavery in common and fell in love and married.

Dark Purple Jacket with Matching Hat

Dark Green Dress with Lace

Which of these two dresses of Barbara's is your favorite? Or is your favorite one that isn't up here? Leave a comment!

  1. Ohhhhh, I LOVE Barbara's costumes!!! I have to say the first one is so awesome - love the wig and hat in that one!!!! Lovely, lovely. But I love how rich the color of the second one is against her hair. I have to say I think Romola actually looks better as a redhead than a blonde.

  2. I love that purple jacket! The white skirt Barbara wears underneath is very pretty, too. I think Ramola Garai looked very nice in that outfit, though I could probably honestly say that I could never pull off that fabulous purple hat!! :)

  3. I adore both outfits here but I think the STUNNING green one is my top favorite (well, with some neckline help).

    I agree, Alexandra, I like Romola better as a redhead.

  4. I love the dark purple outfit! The skirt is so pretty! I. LOVE. THE. HAT.
