Wouldn't be so bad if it didn't have those . . . what would you call them, arcs? Above the puffs at the top of her sleeve. Poor woman looks like she can't move.

I love it! She looks like a hideous 1830's fashionplate version of the usual Cosette dress. I actually squeed when I saw it.

That is why we can't be completely historically accurate with costuming choices. No one would take the women seriously.

When you realise Mme T's hair in Beggar at the Feast is the most period-accurate of any of the original wigs, you almost have to cry.

...at least Hugo *never* went into detail if Cosette ever chose to dress her hair that way...that way we can still rest on our more cosmetically-inclined imaginings.

I have a few to share that are from the 2007-ish revival. Mostly of Celia Keenan-Bolger, with a couple others.

I love how Celia is really stunningly beautiful, but they were able to make her look, in addition to her incredible acting, withered, feral and gritty. She even changed her usual singing style for the role.

And now I'm reminded again why she's my favorite actress in the role of Éponine. :D

Anyone know what production this picture is from? What a cute Cosette. Marius kinda looks like a stereotypical jock though.

I swear that's London, because they look a lot like Alistair Brammer and Lucie Jones. I could be totally wrong, though.

Is that Lucie Jones? I'm not certain, but I've seen some other pictures that are labeled, and it looks sort of like her. She's adorable, anyway. Some people pull off the "Cosette" look so well!

Yep, that's definitely Alistair Brammer, and I'm 85% sure that's Lucie Jones as Cosette. (She looks a bit like Emily Bull, but I think the picture is fairly recent, and Emily's wig was different.)

Thought so. I think Lucie is using her real hair with extensions.

ETA: This picture. Just... this picture.

That picture is definitely not Lucie Jones and definitely is Emily Bull.

Emily is my most favourite Cosette ever.

Anyone know what production this picture is from? I'm wondering because it looks a bit like the Signature Theater one.
