Lady in the Dark (1944) - Ginger Rogers as Liza Elliott wearing a sequined and beaded gown with mink-trimmed train.
According to MovieDiva, director Mitchell Leisen had started in Hollywood as a set and costume designer. Although Edith Head and Raoul Pene du Bois are credited for the costumes, most of them are Leisen’s including the mink skirted outfit Rogers wears in the circus dream, publicized at the time as the most expensive costume in film history (at $35,000). There were two mink-skirted dresses. The first was lined with glass beads, but was so heavy that Rogers couldn’t dance in it. A second dress was made with the sparkling lining in sequins, which are much lighter.
