Queen of Hearts

Ah, the love, betrayal, scandal and, of course, costumes! CW's Reign is fast becoming one of my favourite shows! A bit of a guilty pleasure, it's entertaining but also so visually stunning! I love that they have taken a stylised approach to the Tudor past rather than aiming at accuracy. I'd prefer obviously stylised historicising to something that pretends to be accurate. And let's be honest, accuracy would be wayyy too costly - Renaissance materials and techniques don't come cheap. Besides, the drama wouldn't be half as entertaining if the costumes weren't this theatrical!

Lay your eyes on the clothes, become addicted to the show and let Mary become queen of your heart too!


And can we talk about the opening sequence? AMAZING.
