Rose's White Dress {scene 310 - last scene} : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

I was wondering if anyone had a picture of the white sequined dress Rose wears at the very end of the movie when she meets Jack at the stairs. I noticed it the last time I went to see the movie. I seems from the part shown like a really beautiful dress. If you have a picture of the dress please e-mail me.

Response to Rose's White Dress

Does any web page even have pictures from the last scene?? I just thought about that when you mentioned the dress she was wearing, Leslie. I've seen pictures on the internet from just about every scene in the movie, but not from the last scene. If anyone knows where to find one on the net, please let me know.

Response to Rose's White Dress

Julie and Leslie: I have been to several websites with many, many pictures, but none of the final scene. I don't know why those pictures haven't been released, especially since so many people love that scene. Does Cameron's book have any?

-- Rose (, February 18, 1998.

Response to Rose's White Dress

Sorry for the lack of clarity. I mean, does Cameron's book have any pictures of that particular scene?

Response to Rose's White Dress

Is that dress supposed to be a wedding dress?

-- Becky Gordon (, February 18, 1998.

Response to Rose's White Dress

I don't know, Becky. I know some people believe it is, but wasn't Jack still wearing the clothes he had on when he died? It seems like he would have been dressed for the occasion too.

Response to Rose's White Dress

One way to interpret the events of the movie is an extended wedding ceremony: the ship's band plays a wedding dance, Rose makes a promise (vow), takes the name of Dawson, and gets a *big* diamond.

...and, of course, people cry at weddings.

-- Thomas M. Terashima (, February 18, 1998.

Response to Rose's White Dress

I think that Rose is dressed like an angel or is an eternal bride. I think that even though Rose is dressed like this, Jack is dressed in his same clothes because that is who he really is inside.

-- Ashley (, February 18, 1998.

Response to Rose's White Dress

I think that in the end, the old Rose died, and she's meeting Jack in heaven. That's why he's wearing those clothes. And all of those people where the 1,500 people who died in the sinking. No one really knows what that scene symbolizes.

Response to Rose's White Dress

actually- the clothes Jack wears in the final scene ARENT the same he was wearing when he dies... but yeah i'm not sure why he's not dressed up either.

-- chris (, February 23, 1998.

He wore those clothes because those were the only clothes he had. And because those clothes portrayed who he really was

-- Vanessa Rene Wills (, April 09, 1998.

Thomas, congrats on that interpretation, which I agree with. But, maybe all of that is part of the engagement, and the final scene is a wedding. Regarding the clothes..Both the dream and afterlife theories support that Jack is in the one outfit he had and seemed comfortable with (imagine how often he had to clean it, especially considering his smoking habit) and Rose is in the wedding dress of her dreams. I know I'm off the subject (and often am), but I think another cool thing is that in that scene he's on the landing where he had also waited for Rose to escort her to the "real party." I think in both scenes he was first staring at the clock. Anyone free to see the movie again tomorrow?

-- Bob Gregorio (, April 13, 1998.

Here's a site with some pics of that final scene, so you can get a partial shot of the dress:


-- Mary Lynne Nielsen (, April 14, 1998.

Check out, which has pictures of the real costumes from the film. (And yes, it does look like the white "wedding" dress was the same pattern as the red one Rose wore to the steerage party. Hmm ...)

-- Alison (, April 14, 1998.

has anyone seen some picture of kate winslet in her green dress at the academy awards???also has anyone seen a good picture of her in her white dress.......I just love it,but there are no pictures of her in it that I can find....please e-mail me if you know...please

-- temperance babnick (, April 15, 1998.

Temperence- I don't know about Rose's white dress, but the Oscar edition of People magazine has a nice picture of Kate in her green dress.

-- Laura (, April 15, 1998.

What if Rose's white dress symbolises her pure love for Jack?? She was after all a virgin until she slept with Jack. And he was her true love. This would explain why Jack wasn't really dressed up, Rose was his true love but not his first love.

-- Miranda Swearingen (, April 19, 1998.

You can see the original designs (not photographs) by the costume designer for Titanic at Yes, people has a pic of Kate Winslet's Oscar Dress. It should also have an article about Leonardo DiCaprio and another article about the movie Titanic Cheers

I think it was a wedding dress. And the symbolization of the place where they met was "Make It Count". Remember how Jack slipped her the note, "Make it count, meet me at the clock" after dinner? Well, Rose made her whole life count then she dies and went to Heaven where JAck was waiting for her. Tell me what you Laura Keeper Of Rose's Brekfast Robe

-- Laura, Keeper of Rose's Brekfast Scene Robe (, November 03, 1998.

Perfect, Laura. I agree. She made her life count, and met him at the clock. *sniff sniff* Wait a minute - I'm a guy. I mean, "Yeah, that's cool."

-- BobG (bob@bob.bob), November 08, 1998.

BobG, you soooooo crack me up... :)

-- Gilded Age Junkie (, November 08, 1998.

LOL Laura, care to explain how your the keeper or Rose's breakfast robe scene?? That just strikes me as a little odd, so I'm curious:)

-- Miranda Swearingen (, November 14, 1998.

Yeah, I'm curious, too. Did you buy it or something? I imagine it would have cost a fortune for the actual dress, and if you had it replicated do tell me where! Kelly :-)

-- Kelly (, November 14, 1998.

Okay...I'm sort of embarrassed to admit this, but Laura is referring to a website I stumbled across myself several months ago. At this website, you can register to be the "keeper" of something from the movie. For example, someone is the Keeper of the necklace, someone else is the Keeper of Rose and Jack's love, some else is the Keeper of the Suicide dress, the butterfly comb, the sketches, the first kiss, etc. So, she is the Keeper of the Breakfast Scene Robe. I so not remember where the website is or what it's called or if it is Laura's site or not. Sorry, if any of you were interested.

And since I'm already embarrassed, I might as well admit that I am incidentally Keeper of the Monet.

Okay, I was obsessed...

-- Gilded Age Junkie (, November 15, 1998.

I wonder, who is the "Keeper of the Sanity"? Quit hogging!

-- Frank (, November 15, 1998.

yaeh. The website is It is a cute idea. Although, I would much rather be the keeper of the Boarding outfit but someone else got to it first *grrrr*. I wanted to be the Keeper of Monica's Blue Dress but they would not hear of that...LoL!!!


-- Laura (, November 17, 1998.

Actually, I dont think that the end scene is meant to represent a wedding. White is traditionally worn at weddings to symbolize purity, starting anew. I think the scene represents that, in death, you revert back to the first time in your life that you were truly happy. And for Rose, the first time in her life that she was truly happy, truly in love, was on the ship when she was with Jack. Jack wears simple attire because that is who he was. Rose is more elegant because that is who SHE was. The contrast is added into the final scene one last time, along with the idea that they are together in death, that love knows no boundaries or distance. The people standing in the room are the 1,500 (roughly) souls who lost their lives, representing that their spirits will never cease to inhabit the grand legend that lead them to their fate.

-- jackie (, April 28, 2004.

Also off subject, the clothes Jack's wearing are the best clothes he owns. He didn't die in them. He is a street rat. Rose is wearing a fancy dress because that's who she is a rich girl. Rose is accepting him as he is. She did die because she did everything she said she would. Watching the kids grow up, dying in her bed as an old lady, and going to the pier which the camera stays on that picture a little longer than the others. But htta's my opinion. James Cameron said whether she died or not it's up to you. But about the Heaven dress, it's exactly like the dinner dress, except in white.
