Back in April I posted a Throwdown game about Emma Woodhouse's dresses in Emma 2009 and in May I posted a Jane Austen Mothers Throwdown in honor of Mother's Day. This time we're focusing on the costumes worn by actress Carey Mulligan in her role as Ada Clare in the BBC miniseries Bleak House (2005).
Don't worry, if you haven't seen Bleak House yet or aren't a Dickens fan Ada's dresses are such pretty Victorian styles that they are just fun to look at!
To Play: Take a look at Ada Clare's wardrobe below and vote for your favorites in the poll on the right sidebar. I'll post the results of the poll next week. Leave a comment telling why the dress(es) you voted for are your favorite.
Note: Ada wears some of the same dresses in multiple scenes so I couldn't remember specific scenes for each one. These are most of the dresses she wears in the miniseries but they might not be all.
