Another year, another film inspired by Jane Austen...another resurgence of interest in Regency style? This summer brings us Becoming Jane, the new Austen biopic starring Anne Hathaway (who was surprisingly Texan in Brokeback Mountain, we thought...) and a bevy of dresses with empire waists. This time around, designers keep their dresses from looking like a Pea-in-the-Pod clearance special by splashing them with bold prints and shaping them into shoulder baring halters (DVF and Marc by Marc in particular...). We think Elizabeth Bennett probably would have preferred something more sedate for dinners at Pemberley, but we could definitely see a modern-day Jane in this deep purple dress from Erotokritos. --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
