  1. “Where the hell *IS* Cleves, anyway?”
    “I dunno, maybe somewhere in Africa?”
    “Yeah, why the hell not?”

  2. What about that weird purple slip-thing that Anne Boleyn wore when she was accusing Henry of having a harem? OMG, I loved and hated it at the same time because as pretty as it was, no one in their right mind would be caught dead in it. I actually can’t find an image on it! It was in season 2.

      1. It’s sheer at the bussom! How did they think that would pass for acceptable in the Tudor era?! Any woman walking about like that today would be fined for public indecency.

  3. Multiple instances of fitted sleeves attached only at the shoulder with no shift. More skin does not equal sexy when we’re talking about armpits.

  4. I feel like Anne of Cleves hat was stolen from the Byzantine empire…and then screwed up in transit :-p

  5. About Anne of Cleeves’ headdress thing – I spent years hating it and thinking it was completely made up. However, last few days I was researching German renaissance clothing (since it seems there were a few distinctive styles and everything gets tossed together). And imagine my surprise when I found this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/94646029639370725/ It’s a 1470s headdress from Swabia and… doesn’t it look like the one Anne is wearing? It has similar shape shape, it has the pearls on the base, it only lacks the stones. So while it is from a completely different region and from a different time period, the costumers did actually refer to something!

    It’s no excuse for the dress though…

  6. I know this is an old post but had to let you guys know that I was having a really hard day and this post made it so much better. I laughed out loud at “Burger King crown.”

  7. And not just white corsets… White mesh corsets. I can definitely see Ann’s breast outline between the boning channels. Wonderful.

  8. I know I’m super late to this party, but any thoughts on the winter hat Anne wears? The furry thing with three white balls?
