To celebrate the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of Anna Karenina on 4 February 2013, we’re opening the doors of Ham for an exhibition showcasing some of the iconic costumes from the film.

Inspired by vibrant late 19th-century imperial Russia, the costumes were the work of Oscar-nominated costume designer Jacqueline Durran.

Staged in Ham’s grand long gallery, where key scenes from the film were shot, the exhibition will offer the rare opportunity to view some of the costumes worn by the cast

Highlights include jaw-droppingly beautiful gowns and intricate under garments worn by Anna (Keira Knightley), as well as authentic military garments and accessories created for Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Karenin (Jude Law).

A chance to see some of the memorable costumes

Camilla Churchill, our assistant house steward said:

‘This exhibition provides the unique opportunity to see some of the most memorable costumes from the film, in situ, in the long gallery, one of the few ‘real’ locations used in the production.

‘Situated on the first floor of the house, the gallery played the role of Vronsky’s grand but empty apartments in 19th-century St Petersburg, the setting for Anna’s scandalous affair with the young cavalry officer.

‘It’s a space that is highly theatrical: 25m long, bathed in lavish Baroque detailing, with gilded wooden panelling, fine oil paintings and a parquet floor
. It exudes wealth and luxury, making it the perfect location to experience these sensational costumes.’
