Sorry I have been a way for so long but I am back! Laugh

I was thinking about the fashions that the queens wore and how much it seemed to reflect their personalities as well as their “reign”.

Katherine's garb was so subdued and Anne's was daring!!

And Jane's was conservative with her favouring the more “English” gable hood.  I wonder if her ladies had a little bit of a cry when they found out that they had to wear those again – I know I would've  Laugh

You're right, Gina and Bella! Fashion really defined the Queens–by their clothes you could get a sense of their character. For instance, Anne was exotic and Frenchified (both were part of her allure) and she wore the less gaudy, more elegant French gowns and hoods instead of overdone English gowns and boxy gables. She was a true trendsetter–hello plunging square necklines and draping sleeves, goodbye stiff Spanish clothes!
