White/Green Lady-in-Waiting

Geneviève Bujold wears this dress as Anne Boleyn in "Anne of the Thousand Days" when she dances with the King at Court. The white fabric seem to have a damask pattern, possibly with a large floral print. The pale green is rather unusual for this time but complements the decorations on the bodice. It could be taffeta or satin.
These decorations consists of different precious stones in gold, white and greenish colour. Anne is wearing a French hood lined with the same white damask and decorated with the same precious stones - though it looks as if there are more green stones on the hood than on the bodice.
