It seems like ages since I've even signed into my account, I've been drowning in coursework but its finished. For the time being anyway. Seeing as I'm far too lat for the obligatory Fashion Week post, I'll share some costume with you.
When I started the course, my tutor said You'll never watch a period film in the same way again. Now, I've always enjoyed a good costume drama but now I want to see every last detail, down to the button holes.
I'm desperate to see The Young Victoria, with Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend.
Not long because the costumes are exquisite, the green gown below was constructed from a bolt of original Victoria fabric and other gowns are trimmed in original Victorian lace.
I'm also interest in the love story between Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (even if they were first cousins), I don't think its possible to walk along Queen Gate and not feel a little overwhelmed by The Albert Memorial. Its 170 feet high, after all.
Some think its ridiculous that Victoria mourned for the forty years between Albert's death and her own but I cant help thinking that it was the perfect tribute to true love.
