Well, I’m off in Hawaii wearing much less elegant clothes than any of the Rate the Dresses. I only have a general idea of how last week’s very purple frock rated based on the comments that came in before I went off. So I’ll update this post later with a final count.
Update: the extremely purple 1860s dress came in at 7.2 out of 10, which was very consistent with the majority of the ratings.
We’ve seen Anne of Denmark before, showing off her exquisite bosom and throat. This time she’s a little more covered up, befitting an outfit worn to walk the dogs (OK, not really) and possibly ride a horse, or at least stand regally in front of it.
The outfit retains the late-Elizabethan ruff, but the transition to 17th century style is apparent. Anne also seems to be transitioning to a more mature style of her own: gone are the pastels, the demure pose, replaced by rich colours and an assertive cocked arm. Is the change in Anne’s style an improvement? Or is she just a poor example of the changing times?
