Princess Kaiulani

Coming out in theaters this week is a new film about Princess Kaiulani, the princess of Hawaii. It looks like it will be good...not sure what the rating is yet though... :-S
Anyhoo! I believe it is set in the late 1880s, early 1890s--one of my favorite fashion eras!! The costumes are just beautiful! Take a look!

I was able to find several pictures of the real Princess Kaiulani online. Again, beautiful costumes from the era. Here are some of the pictures:

I would love to make some outfits based on some of these costumes!
Which do you like best?

Oh, hurray! I had not heard that they were making a movie. Thank you for sharing!
Personally, I like thr green (with more modesty) and white ones from the movie, and the second picture of her...with the pearl necklace.
Through Christ,

According to IMDB it's rated PG. I'm hoping to be able to see it!

Looks like they tried to style the movie costumes after some of her real life wardrobe, that's always nice to see.
I especially like the photo of her with the pearls, she was very beautiful! Looks like bodice of the green gown from the film is designed in a similar style to that photo. That's my favorite but I do like some of the more modest costumes too.

GORGEOUS! and I love that time period too.

Unfortunately, the movie isn't in theaters in my area. :( Well, I guess it'll be out on DVD eventually.

I've never heard of this movie yet! It sounds awesome...I definitely want to see it! I read a book on Kaiulani when we went to Hawaii (seemed fitting :-) and I loved her story. I hope the movie doesn't wreck it or anything, though. :-/

From what I just read on IMDB, it looks like it already came out, back in 2009? Is it re-releasing or something?

I really like the dress in the seventh picture! It's gorgeous!
