This blue dress is probably the most iconic dress worn by River Tam in Serenity.
Here's the write-ups from Propstore of London (pages no longer available) :
"River Maidenhead Bar Costume
A costume worn by River in the sci-fi adventure Serenity. This costume was worn by River in the Maidenhead Bar scene where she receives a subliminal message and attacks all the bar’s patrons. It consists of a short blue dress, with a sheer patterned blue dress worn layered over the top, a knitted black shrug garment to go on the arms and a pair of dark blue underpants. No sizes marked.
This was priced at $4,709."

Fashion-specialized website 'Red Carpet Fashion Awards' noticed many celebrities such as Katy Perry, Summer Glau, Ashley Tisdale and Sophia Bush were spotted wearing dresses from New York-based designer Erin Fetherston this Summer.
Katy Perry’s pretty ombre pink flutter sleeve dress with floral appliqués made us forget how much we disliked her purple hair, while Summer Glau’s gown is most definitely a Best Dressed Of The Week contender.

Take a look at the TSCC press Kit made by FOX to accompagny the series premiere on FOX, on January 13th 2008.
This promo collectible was never available for purchase in stores and only sent to FOX TV executives and members of the media.
It all started when these lucky few received a mysterious nondescript plain white envelope containing a simple note, signed by John Connor, and a key (see below photo).
A few days later, they received a Security Trust of Los Angeles Safety Deposit Box A-117 (it's a real metal distressed safety deposit box with a key in the lock. Two items were inside the box:
Here are photos of the items enclosed in the Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles Press kit, including pictures of the famous TSCC dog-tag :
UPDATE : Here are screencaps of the pilot, where you can see the Security Trust Of Los Angeles and the safe box a117, that had bundles of keys inside (see KevinInScotland additional references to TSCC's pilot in the comment section) :
FOX did a good job marketing the launch of TSCC. Unfortunately, the Gods of TV decided it should not have more than two seasons. But i'm glad that people like Thomas Dekker, Summer Glau or James Middleton never miss an opportunity to remind us of the awesomeness of the serie.
Side note : i'd like very much to have one of those TSCC dog-tag key chains.
I guess you've all seen the video featuring Summer Glau greeting fans on her way to the San Diego Convention Center at this year SDCC 2012.
