Fashion or Flop? - Elisabeth de Valois

Here we see the lovely Elisabeth de Valois, donning black with burnt orange accents. However, what really seems to make this outfit pop is her extensive use of accessories. Her lavish jewelry collection is prominently displayed along her bodice, while she caps off her outfit with a heavily bejeweled hat. Though the dress itself is quite plain, the accessories seem to "make the outfit." 

What think ye?
Pin It


  1. Its those delightfully detailed sleeves & the matching ribbons on the jewels that makes this work; that & the jaunty cap. I'll bet those sleeves & pins adorned more than this one dress.

  2. I like it! I think she pulls it all off nicely, although I must say that all in all the outfit looks a bit... stuffy. Literally.

  3. I think fashion...but it looks very heavy.

  4. Fashion, but definitely not one of my favorites....
