River Tam battle dress by DKNY

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Aug 17, 2012 / 1 COMMENTS


Summer Glau wears this dress in the climactic fight scenes of Serenity at the end of the movie , as well as in promotional photos. This green dress  is from the Donna Karan New York (DKNY) Spring 2004 Ready-To-Wear collection.

Along with the blue dress worn by River Tam in the Maidenhead Bar scene where she receives a subliminal message and attacks all the bar’s patrons, this dress is probably the most iconic dress worn by River in Serenity.
 
Here are Propstore of London photos of River Tam's green party dress with gold beading by DKNY.

For the record, this lovely dress by DKNY has been used in two different promo shots. It's likely not the same exact dress, as both were likely purchased in a store. The first promo shot was for the DVD cover of Dead Like Me season 2 (Costume seen on Ellen Muth as Georgia Lass, on the left on the photo), and the second promo shot was from Serenity.

Seeing Summer in that dress, and in those scenes made me think that despite how pretty she is, she is such a gutsy performer who just throws herself completely into her character. She is not afraid to reveal all that the character has to offer, whether it is displaying her grit that she needs to run towards the Reavers, contorting herself in a physical rage as she slaughters them, and then standing in exhaustion, anger, and looking as grim as death standing over their bodies. She really convinces the audience that she is that character and that she did these things. At no point am I thinking that this is cute but I don't believe it. She makes a complete transformation into River the Impaler and she is going to make it a really bad day to be a Reaver. And she looks fabulous doing it.

As an aside, Ellen Muth is a gifted comic actress. I remember seeing her in that series and she was so good. If anyone has not seen that series, I highly recommend it.
