lavender ruffle shirt
Item # D0804
This shirt was worn by the character “Penny Lane” portrayed by actress Kate Hudson in the Academy Award winning film “Almost Famous”, also starring Patrick Fugit and Billy Crudup. The original 1960’s shirt is constructed out of a sheer pale lavender material with a ruffle flounce neckline and white lace trim. Ms. Hudson is first seen in this shirt when she learns from “William” (Patrick Fugit) that Russell sold “The Band-Aids” and Penny Lane to another band for fifty dollars and a Heineken.
“Almost Famous” was a semi-autobiographical film based on writer/director Cameron Crowe’s experiences writing for music publications as a youth. The film earned him an Academy Award for Best Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen in 2001. The movie featured an outstanding performance by newcomer William Fugit, and both Kate Hudson and Frances McDormand received Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actress for their work on the film. Costume designer Betsy Heimann received an award for Excellence in Costume Design for Film (Period/Fantasy). The garment is in good vintage condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house.
