4 thoughts on “Who Wore It Better? Queen Elizabeth I’s Wired Veil & Ruff

  1. Helen Mirren. It’s not my era, so I can’t speak to accuracy, but they seem right and look beautiful instead of silly like some of the others.

  2. The second image of Judi Dench for the size, angle and ratio of the wired veil and ruff. Then Glenda Jackson.

    I must admit a soft spot for the Bete Davis version, more Italianate than Elizabethan, but still a lovely frock.
