The Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace is exploring the sartorial — and accessory — choices of royals of days past in a show that features piles of gold embroidery and embellishment and looks closely at codpieces and pearl earrings — for men and women. “In Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion” showcases prints, drawings and portraits of royals, courtiers and wealthy gentry of the 16th and 17th centuries, and puts modern-day airbrushing and physical enhancement into a historical context.
“Fashion was hugely important to court life and entry to the inner circle was largely driven by personal appearance,” said exhibition curator Anna Reynolds of Royal Collection Trust. “The rich and powerful were the trend-setters of the age and used clothing to send out messages about their taste and status.”
