Vintage Fashion on Film - My Fair Lady

Although this film was made in 1960's, the time period of the movie was Edwardian. Wow, and the gowns are just amazing! It's no surprise that it won the oscar that year for best costumes. Audrey Hepburn shines in each and every outfit, showcasing not only stunning dresses, but incredible hats, gloves and jewelry. I just wonder how many of the costumes were authentic Edwardian period garments, and how many were reproduction designs?
