* Many of the early [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney films]], such as the ball in ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}''.

* Many of the early [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney films]], such as the ball in ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}''. [[Film/Cinderella The remake]] had colors so vibrant that, for example, Cinderella's dress had to be edited in post to be ''that blue'' in the lighting of the movie.


Added DiffLines:

* Zigzagged in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}''. Jefferson, the Schuyler Sisters, King Goerge III, and even Hamilton in his later life have opulent, brightly-colored clothing. Most of the cast, on the other hand, has simple army uniforms or plain tan Revolutionary-era clothing - especially in "Alexander Hamilton", when the entire ''cast'' wears colorless beige, but otherwise generally period-correct, clothing. Some female cast members are even reduced to tights and corsets, averting the trope entirely.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/TheMusketeers'', which takes place in 17th century Paris (like the novels it's based on), this trope is usually true for high class women, in particular Queen Anne and Milady de Winter.

* The Franchise/AmericanGirlsCollection is this trope in spades. Every doll has several associated outfits, historically accurate, and most of them gorgeous dresses. Every doll has at least one fancy dress that's bright and elegant.

Please note that GorgeousPeriodDress is not necessarily limited to eras before the 20th century. Movies and shows set in the ''Belle Epoque'' or [[TheEdwardianEra Edwardian era]] (roughly 1900-1914), the RoaringTwenties, the Thirties, the Forties (especially the "New Look" period of the late 1940's and early 1950's when Christian Dior and other designers tossed aside the austerity of the WorldWarTwo years to bring sumptuousness and elegance back to women's couture), and even TheSixties, can and do use this trope.
