UK’s Telegraph Uncovers Facts on Emma’s Dress
Nov 12, 2005
The Telegraph reports that 20’s actress Anna May Wong was the original owner of the dress Emma wore to last week’s London premiere.
Like Emma, Miss Wong, pictured in a similar dress, stood at 5ft 6in and also started her acting career as a child star, in a silent film, The Red Lantern – produced in 1919 she was 13.
This is where the similarities end. Miss Wong, who died in 1961, was known by film critics as a seductress, exotic temptress, a femme fatale, whereas Emma has been described as a “happy-go lucky girl next door”.
