A long blue-sequinned dress worn by Julie (played by Jessica Mauboy) in The Sapphires (Wayne Blair, Australia, 2012).

The 360-degree view gives us a good opportunity to see the entirety of this costume designed by Tess Schofield. She undertook significant research to capture the fashion of the late 1960s.

This glamorous dress became an icon of the film and appeared on versions of the film's poster. The result is a stunning, figure-hugging design that is both tasteful and alluring.

Schofield won the 2012 AACTA Award for designing the film's costumes.
