Diane Lane and John Malkovich Secretariat movie costumes...

Disney's Secretariat movie tells the true life story of 'Penny Chenery' and her thoroughbred racehorse, 'Secretariat', who became the first horse in twenty-five years to win the U.S. Triple Crown in 1973.

When Penny Chenery hired his son, 'Roger Laurin', to train and manage her stables, he helped return her business to profitability by cutting costs before moving on to work elsewhere. As an interim measure he suggested his retired father, Lucien, may help out temporarily at Meadow Stables in his place. And the rest as they say is racehorse history.

  1. Funny, I just saw Secretariat yesterday and do not remember the dress shown here on display.

  2. You can see it worn by Diane Lane in the picture over the left shoulder, but I've yet to see the movie, so will keep an eye out for it :)

  3. She wore the dress to the Belmont race

  4. I just got home from the movie and I couldn't wait to come home to find out about Julie Weiss the costume designer of the movie.She is very talented and would love to have all of the clothes Diane Lane wore in the movie. The movie was great!!!!! I also wanted to find out more about Secretariat....watched the actual races pretty cool.
