Bonnie Butler

Selznick noticed that dressing Bonnie, played by Cammie King, in blue made her eyes pop, so he has Plunkett develop blue costumes for her, establishing a strong association between the color blue and Bonnie throughout the film. She is even called "Bonnie Blue Butler."

This particular dress, a regal blue riding dress, is worn by Bonnie Butler just before the fatal fall off her pony.
