It is unknown just where exactly this highly detailed and beautifully embroidered early Jacobean style jacket originated. While it is possible that it was made for The New World, where it was first seen in 2005 on Q’orianka Kilcher as Pocahontas, most of the gowns from that film were recycled from earlier films such as Shakespeare In Love or Elizabeth.

The jacket is seen again in the opening credits of Showtime series The Tudors, most likely on Natalie Dormer as Anne Boleyn, though her face is not shown when we see the jacket. In 2008, it was seen on Esther Nubiola as Diane de Monsoreau in the film La dame de Monsoreau, and then again in 2014 on Alice Sanders as Fleur Baudin in the television show The Musketeers.

Jackets like these can often be seen in portraits from the time period, and several of them still exist today.  A portrait of Dorothy Cary, Viscountess Rochford shows a wonderful example, and an extant jacket in the collection at The Fashion Museum in Bath. is extremely similar to the costume above, right down to the pink ribbons.
