I have long admired Adler's hot pink dress from the movie Sherlock Holmes (2009). One of my favorite things the costume designer did with this dress the fact she took a classic Victorian shape and made it from hot pink silk satin.
All the details are simple so that the fabric stands out.

The color is such vibrant hue that it was surely a deliberate choice of Adler's to be an unique color in the women's fashions of the time. She wanted to stand out.
*My Version of the Costume*
15 yards of hot pink satin made up this Victorian style dress.
Costume includes a skirt, bodice and bustle. The front of the bodice is finished off with a row of antique bronze buttons.
Back of the Dress is the real statement here. With a full Victorian bustle and gathered puffed up satin. The bustle is fully supported with padded bustle form in historical fashion. This allows for the bustle to bounce back perfectly even after sitting down.

I just loved how these dresses looked worn together! The colors were amazing together.
