    Kate Winslet "Rose Dewitt Bukater" screen worn luncheon "first sight" lace gown from Titanic. (TCF, 1997) Original Edwardian-style empire waist gown constructed of marigold satin sheath and hand embroidered blonde French lace overlay with plunging neckline revealing the interior gown's satin modesty panel. This is often referred to as "the first sight" dress, as it is what "Rose" (Winslet) is wearing when she and "Jack" (Leonardo DiCaprio) first lay eyes on each other aboard the doomed liner. Rose walks to the edge of the ship's upper balcony and Jack is instantly smitten before Rose finally takes furtive notice of him. The cascading 3-tiers of embellished lace are hand appliquéd in leaf flourishes on each tier with scalloped edges and floating leaf tips giving fringe-like movement to the floor-length skirt of the garment. With sheer green mesh shoulder panels and a double layer of green silk leaves at the satin gown's hem. Ornamented with black dot detail within the delicate lace piping at neckline and sleeve cuffs. The garment has a hook and eye and snap back closure, internal waist cinching belt and boning reinforcement in the bodice. The high-waist gown is punctuated by a red satin cummerbund with black velvet piping on the edges, hook and eye closure at the front and embellished with an integral blossom of sheer silk rose. A stunning example of the nuanced excellence in authenticity and craft that are hallmarks of this landmark, historical movie. Exhibiting age, production wear and handling, some pulls and sensitive repairs to lace sleeves and fragile areas, minor lace tanning, some subtle fraying to lining. In very good condition.
