The Tudors Costumes : Anne Boleyn


The Masquerade where Henry first notices Anne Boleyn

Comments:

Others have commented on the historical inaccuracies of the dress, so I'll skip right to this: Though Anne looks positively enchanting, I think a bolder color would have become her better in this scene. Had it not been for the close-ups of Dormer and Rhys-Meyers, Anne would have been just another pretty part of the masque like all the others. -TheRisenFalcon

I am in love with this gown. Apart from the fact it's transparent, It is fantastic. The bodice isn't tudor though, but with Anne she gets away with it! I love the mask and the crown on her head and around her neck is brilliant!
Grace_B

This is quite a nice dress, but seriously, no one would have worn this during this period. The one which Anne wore during 'Anne of the Thousand Days' perfect! They didn't have short sleeves, the bodice would NOT have been transparent and the V-shape bodice wasn't present during this period, either (a mistake which lots of people have made).
-KatherinetheQueen

Is that bodice see-through? *gasp* It is! Bleh. It looks like an extended-length tutu for ballet dancer. Longest is down to the calves, so that doesn't work, either!
TheOtherTudorGirl5

This looks like medieval underwear to me. I much prefer the black version of this, which is much more inspiring. But the mask is beautiful.
latristessadurera

I like this dress on the whole especially the ruff and the mask. Shame the see through bodice lets it down. Patches near the eyes give sparkle.
LadyHistory.

I really love the skirt. But I wish the bodice wasn't slightly see through; and I also wish it had long sleeves. I adore her mask though and her banner fits her personality.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

The lacy skirt is nice but i think the bodice looks better as Jane's underwear rather than a dress. Would like the neckpiece if there wasn't so many ruffles. I don't think she suits white/cream.
amore_angel

I love this costume. Especially how Anne's banner fits her personality quite well, as opposed to Henry's honesty banner. - Leeloominai

The Costume Designer said that this costume was inspired by Degas paintings of the Ballet costumes like "Swan Lake" & Balenciaga's corsets. It's a beautiful scene and when I compare it to other movies/tv shows of this momentous occasion where Henry first "notices" Anne, this one stands out. Is it perhaps significant that Henry kills and eats the 'swan' he first set eyes on in this scene? - MsSquirrly


Love Anne's costume although I would have preferred just a bit of a sleeve.
Isn't that "Honesty" banner more than just a little ironic? LOL
Angelsun

Yeah, I know, Anglesun, when I saw that I laughed. Anyway this costume is my favorite of all the gowns, it's so elegant and so beautiful. I would LOVE to be able to wear it just once.
-Arabella_Tudor_Brandon

Although Anne appears in many many gorgeous gowns over the two seasons this one holds a certain charm in my opinion. I love that even though a few other women are wearing the same gown it stands out so much more on Anne/Natalie. I love her hairstyle and makeup in this aswell - perfect for a memorable entrance. Natalie looks stunning!
-
QueenAnneBoleyn

I admire alot of this gown because it brings out Anne Boleyn/Natalie's image very well,it's an absolute stunning gown.
-Padri 81

What a nice wedding dress this would make.
-GoldenAged.ER

yddib.

Reminds me of Swan lake. Very romantic and simple. No wonder Henry noticed her!

The only thing I did not like about this one was that there were no sleeves, it would be a nice Sweet 16 though.
-Anne'sCurls

I want, want, want this dress!! What a way to make an entrance! I absolutely loved this gown! It shows that Anne was beautiful and elegant, like a swan! At first when I saw the Scene I did not like the frills around the neck but i now think that this outfit wouldn't be the same without it! Natalie looks amazing and her "Perseverence" Banner was very fitting!
- A_Tudor_Lady

As beautiful as this costume is, it's ludicrously bare. Even just a sheer white or gold sleeve might have made all the difference.
-Brennalarose

She's really beautiful!!hmm she reminds me of a swan.Probably that's why in the end of season 2 Henry ate a swanBecause he got rid of her
BoleynGirl

I'm not too much of a fan of this costume. While it is a pretty thing, it is grossly inaccurate for the times. You see this kind of stage costume in ballets in the 20th century most, most notably in Swan Lake. In the Tudors era, it is highly inappropriate for a woman to go sleeveless. Not to mention that none of the Tudor era bodices ever looked like a corset. And the material for the skirts did not exist back then either. Also neck ruffs were made popular later in the Elizabethan era.
~Charlie-Beth-Hayden

Love this dress! Its so virginal
katzklawz04

I love this dress it's very pretty. I even like the see through bodice.
Lady_Amber

I love the dress, but this isn't a Tudor period dress.
princess

Lovely, though it is not accurate at all. We can feel the Degas' touch.
- Marina de Chapagne-

I really like this dress but it would have been perfect if the bodice was not tranparentLouiseTudor

Anne in the royal colour purple - not a colour of her status at the time

The Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors WikiThe Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors Wiki
This dress is pretty - but NOT sensational. Anne's attempt to flaunt her newfound status is dampened because this dress is neither bold nor particularly flattering; also, it doesn't have the bold hues of a true royal purple. The headpiece and necklace are beautiful, but her bodice is too tight; it would be better with some lining along the top. Also, the embroidery on her bodice really dwarfs the rest of the dress. Not my favorite.
-TheRisenFalcon


I am in love with this dress! Although it's more maroon than purple. The pin works incredibly well with the dress. It's certainly the style of dress that would have been worn in this period, It looks lovely and Natalie really suits it - both in style and colour!
Grace_B

This would have been a gorgeous dress if her trumpet sleeves had been turned over slightly and pinned to reveal some of the lining (something which was common at the time), if the skirt was stiffened rather than pleated and her neckline would have been adorned with jewels instead of just left plain. And don't even get me started on the embroidery on the embroidery on the bodice, that just ruins it completely. Also, I would like to add that although this colour isn't considered to be purple today, this would be considered burgandy, as someone had already said, this would have been the colour purple during this period, and for that reason I give this gown a thumbs up since it's so authentic. I absolutely adore the jewellery and coronet.
-KatherinetheQueen

Technically, she's not even supposed to wear purple. The bodice is unflattering. The jewellry, I don't mind.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

It is a rather uninspiring dress. It's not very eye catching and i would never had guessed it was meant to be purple. I adore the long, flowing sleeves.
latristessdurera


I like the colour and the sleeves. Her jewelry and tiara make the statement rather than her dress though.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X


I like the colour but its a bit bland despite the golden pattern. It was meant to make a statement but i think it failed.
amore_angel

My problem with this dress is that although it is purple (the royal colour) and so signifying her rise the neckline has no decoration at all when a lady of status would also have a decorated neckline - VivatAnne

I love this especially the colours however I do agree with VivatAnne In fact I think there should have been more jewels all over it not just on the neckline. The coronet is beautiful though.
-
QueenAnneBoleyn

This one, I don't care if there are not enough jewels on the front of her gown. She wasn't full royalty yet anyway. Just the purple was enough. I don't really like the decoration on the neckline as much as I used to. I love the color purple. And as always, the jewels just make it x better. Absolutely gorgeous!
-GoldenAged.ER


I think the caption explains why she doesn't have the decorated neckline. Color was not befitting her status at the time, she would have pushed the envelope too far.
karenofbethany

I dont really like the dress but it definately sends the message: I am the Queen!
- A_Tudor_Lady

This gown really shows off her unique style.
-automaticeyes

Is this really purple? Am I just clolor blind? It looks like there is purple in there but its not a purple gown-Anne'sCurls

What many here do not realize is that purple in medieval times and under medieval/Renaissance dyeing methods does not produce the same hue as modern people are accustomed to--but a color that would be called "burgundy" after the invention of artificial dyes and fibers. Under natural methods, "purple" is red. As a reenactor, I am pleased to see Anne depicted here in true medieval purple. I am equally appalled at the cut of all the costumes in the series. We know EXACTLY what they wore. It's not like trying to do early medieval work or some of the Asian reconstructions. Thousands of reenactors play this period perfect. They should do the same.


The dress would have been nice if it wasn't for those golden things on the corset top which totally spoils it. Loving the jewels though.
mary_bess_edward

I don't like the dress that much.But I love her jewels
BoleynGirl

I do like this dress, but I don't think it fits with the hair.
-Nan_Bullen

This dress is gorgeous and would definitely cause a scene like it did over her rank. She looks every inch a Queen here, and purple is her colour for sure!! I love the crown. -Tudor_Queen

Now this dress, to me does not even look like purple, more like burgondy with a purple like shimmer, contrary to what it is said to be. This dress looks more like what was worn back then, although the gold design on the bodice isn't exactly true to the times and the neckline would be adorned with pearls and jewels. The undersleevs would also be more poofier too, but I can let that slide. Also, Ann should be wearinga French Hood through the series rather than tiaras.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

We already know that the costumes are not entirely accurate, and that they were not intended to be. The costume designer was aiming to breathe new life into the era, and to modernise it so that the audience could relate to the characters more easily. If Anne was decked out in a completely accurate costumes, with shift, coif and hood etc, it would be harder for the audience to really see Natalie's brilliant performance through the costume. Btw I think this costume is stunning, I love the jewels especially.
the_most_happy


I love this dress although I agree that it does look more burgundy than purple, but I know people who would argue that burgundy is a type of purple, so, oh well. And I think that even though it doesn't have a decorated neckline that her beautiful necklace and brooch more than make up for that. She looks fantastic. And she probably wore tiaras some of the time, since she was the (future) queen.
MademoiselleBoleyn

I really love this dress even though it looks burgundy not purple. The colour looks right on her.
Lady History.



I love this dress!!!! I love the colors with to it just fits Anne perfectly!
anneboleyn21

Very regal and suits her down to the ground
katzklawz04

I'm not a fan of this dress, I think the gold detail on the front spoils it. I do love the color though it screams Queen Of England.
Lady_Amber

I love this gown, even if I am not keen of the gold embroideries. In my opnion, it shows well Anne's rise. Her jewels are exquisite!

- Marina de Champagne-

What a lovely, fey-looking dress! I still think the richer, bolder colors suit Natalie - and the vivacious Anne - much better, but the contrast between this gauzy-white dress and Natalie's long, dark tresses is stunning. -TheRisenFalcon

This is a lovely dress, it's simple, floaty and elegant but nobody would have worn it in the publicity, I agree it's more like nightwear or underwear. It may not be her best colour but I think it suits her well.
Grace_B

This is beautiful but it would not have been worn publicly, this kind of style is better suited for underwear or nightwear. Anne wore white a lot, but it isn't Natalie's best colour.
-KatherinetheQueen

Meh, not my favourite, but it looks nice. White isn't her best colour, though.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

I think this would make a good night dress but not a court dress. It is very pretty but i think it would have looked better on someone younger or fairer, like Anita Briem or Tamzin Merchant.
latristessadurera


I can't help but think this dress should be kept for a seventies type programme. Headpiece is nice though. Lady History.

Very light and flowy, and I love the sleeves. Her headband/headpiece is so pretty.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

I love the lace, its so light and flowing. The sleeves are amazing. But again i don't think the colour or really the whole look suits Anne.
amore_angel

This was my favourite dress in season 1 -I don't know why I like it but I just do, i't was a pity we didn't see this dress again in the series because it's just beautiful-Neta07

It would look beautiful on any of the queens, especially Jane.
karenofbethany



No, they're not the same dress. The one in the promo is a nightgown (maybe it's the same, but they fixed it). Anyway, pretty good dress, the headdress makes a lot. -LadyLorhen


I love this dress, and actually made a headband to match the one in the pic! Too lovely!
-AnneBoleyn87



I think they had her wear this in season I because it is so virginal looking and she was sending a message to him that she was not available as only a mistress.

karenofbethany

This dress says to me I am a virgin, youthful and graceful! Love the head-peice!
- A_Tudor_Lady

This dress is so elegant and really shows Anne/Natalie off well. I love the headress!!
-
QueenAnneBoleyn

Very simple and yet elegant.
-automaticeyes

I LOVE HER HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!-Anne'sCurls

It's beautiful.I agree with Anne's CurlsI love her hairstyle
BoleynGirl

This gown, if it can be called that in the Tudor era, looks like a nightgown to me and should have been left for the bedroom.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress is to musch like a nightgown but still beautifull
katzklawz04

This would look good as a night gown but not as a formal dress. It's too casual for my liking. I do love her hair though!
Lady_Amber

One of my favourite above all even if I am certain this would have never been wore at Court. The headpiece is lovely.

-Marina de Champagne-
Season One Promo Shoot

Promo- Anne
As a night-shift, this is all right. I don't think of it as a costume so much as an undergarment, but it looks well enough in promotional photos (except for Anne's unabashed-strumpet poses, but that's beside the point). What more is there to say, really? It's underwear. -TheRisenFalcon

The sleeves are so elegant and I think they are beautiful, although simple! But that's all I don't really like the rest of it, I've seen better nightgowns in the series.
Grace_B

She looks like a common ***** here-no offence. The open-leg thing is just erotic.
TheOtherTudorGirl5


I like the sleeves. Nothing more can be said though, it's only a shift.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

Wish she would have chosen a more ladylike pose rather than pornstar, legs spread open. So cringeworthy. That said i do like the sleeves.
amore_angel

What? That doesn't count as a dress!
-A_Tudor_Lady

Agreed! Underwear doesn't count!
-Brennalarose

This is a pretty accurate shift for the era and is used to sleep in, and also the garment worn under all the other undergarments, including the corset. One of the more accurate articles of clothing in the series.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

They actually usually slept naked back then.
MademoiselleBoleyn

I love this shift. Yes it's plain but she looks fierce & sexy. Exactly how we wanted her to be. I'm also loving the pose too.
Lady_Amber
Season One Promo Shoot (Different Nightgown from above)

AnneThe Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors Wiki
Strangely enough, I like this nightgown a lot less than the last one, BUT I think it becomes Natalie better - probably because the poses in these two shots are so much more tasteful. Natalie's cascades of dark hair provide such beautiful contrast here; this is more the Anne Boleyn of my imagination. But the lace, the fabric, and the off-the-shoulder-style are just not very attractive to me. -TheRisenFalcon

She looks wonderful in this shoot and the rich wine red colour of the rose is alluring, but this doesn't look cosy at all.
Grace_B

Seeing as how no one has commented yet, I will at least say something. Like always I adore her hair. I have these two pix on my wall only because of her hair. As for the nightgown, it sometimes looks pink to me and I am not sure if that is an accident or was done purposely. Honestly the pink makes me think something red bled into it by accident. -Anne'sCurls
Anne in Henry's dream

AnneAnne


Anne
And in a Seasons One Promo Shoot
Anne_Gold Dress_Promo Shoot
This is not a dress I would have chosen for this scene. Anne's gauzy-white dress from Episode would be perfect, I think. I can imagine her as a fey, elusive figure in white, dancing tantalizingly out of Henry's reach. I don't mind the gold here - not really - but the embroidery is (forgive me) something I can see adorning a royal fool at a court entertainment. She looks pretty in the promo shot but the rest of the time, the color makes her look washed out. Nice dress, but not for her. -TheRisenFalcon

It is lovely, but I agree that It could have had maybe square neckline with jewels, a fitted corset and tudor bell sleeves it would have been perfect! They could have done loads more with this dress, Nevertheless, she still looks elegant and floaty.
Grace_B

I completely agree with everything latristessadurea said! If it had a fitted corset, maybe with the beads only used on the bodice, Tudor bell sleeves, a square neckline adorned with jewels then you would have a perfect Tudor gown. This is just too modern, in fact, even I wouldn't wear it though.
-KatherinetheQueen

I actually like this, even though it looks like a bunch of balls were glued on. The bottom picture with the tiara looks lovely, though.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

I really hate this dress. It would have been nicer if it had a fitted corset rather than having it continuously flow into the skirt. I like the colour but i don't think it suits Natalie's complexion, especially in the poor lighting where she looks rather orange herself. And the beads would have been charming in moderation, perhaps on either the corset or the skirt, not both.
latristessadurera.

I really love the way the skirt drapes in the first picture. I like this dress, the silky material is wonderful and I actually like the little beads. Her hair also looks amazing.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X


The way the skirt drapes and folds is beautiful, and makes a great effect in the first picture (top left)
the_most_happy

It would have been a nice dress if it wasn't for those spotted things. Whoever said it looks like she has a skin disease is % right. And the dress is a bit plain. Perhaps some embroidery to finish it off would have been nice. She looks like a sesame seed bagel.
amore_angel

I think this gown would look a lot better with a square neckline - but the fabric is absolutely lush! - Shadow_in_the_Sun

I love the hairsyle but the gown itself is a little plain for my liking. I agree that the fabric is gorgeous though! And I think there should be more jewellery.
-
QueenAnneBoleyn

I agree with QueenAnne, the gown is not one of my favorites. The hairstyle is beautiful though. I want my hair to grow that long. lol. Yes, it's just not one of her "wow" gowns. Plain, simple.. something you would see on Jane more likely.
-GoldenAged.ER

The way they filmed this scene was very lovely, dream-like, but I agree that the gown is not my favorite.
-KingsRose

Isn't this the "seduce me" scene? It is more subliminal, presenting her wearing gold which represents royalty but it is simple - showing her womanhood in a plain and obvious way.

karenofbethany

Although the dress is plain, Natalie's beauty stands outshe is not in competition with her wardrobe. - offwithherhead

I don't like it very much, although the scene is great. However, she makes it beautiful, as always.-LadyLorhen

This a beautiful scene and if any of you have seen the picture of most of the Tudor cast at a feast and Anne/ Natlie is wearing this dress, it looks a lot more flattering on her then, then it does in these pictures! However it is true, anne/natalie flatters the gown, not the other way around! I think this dress would have been better if it had more shape and definition! After all Anne/Natalie has got such a great figure and this dress just hangs on her!
-A_Tudor_Lady

Due to this being a dream, I can forgive a good deal of the shaping. It looks ethereal and unreal, meant to flow rather than hug. I find it to be one of her sexier looks.
-Brennalarose

The fabric just isn't appealing.
-automaticeyes

I think this has got to be the worse dress/fabric i have ever seen. It looks like she's got some weird skin disease. Not flattering at all!
mary_bess_edward

I didn't like this dressBut she's really beautiful in season 1 promo shoot.Love her crown


This seeded pearl silk dress is awesome in its simplicity. Very queenly. Antoinette2.

Since this is more of a dream inspired by infatuation, I'll not critique it other than saying that this gown would have never existed in Tudor history.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress is so beautiful! I love the pearl-studded silk! Anne looks very ethereal.
MademoiselleBoleyn


At first i didn't know what to think of this dress and then I started to love it and the way it fit her, its just very flowy and dream like and is perfect for the scene its in.
anneboleyn21
The spicy gold is fantastic. It glows in the dream scene. Lady History.

Hate this dress its far to knobbly
katklawz04

I like the nice floaty shape, but the fabric just reminds me of a starfish. Not sure why
pretty_historian

I really don't like this dress. The color is not flattering & the shape of the dress is just weird. I agree with whoever said it should of been a corset & skirt rather than a full length dress. I do like the little balls on the dress though.
Lady_Amber

I never liked the fabric of this dress it looks almost like there is small bumps on it.. but the tiara is beautiful
LouiseTudorThis dress is maddeningly inaccurate - a perplexing mix of styles from very different countries and time periods. However, I do think it works well in her scene with Thomas Wyatt. It shows Anne as he himself might have viewed her then - feminine and beautiful and unattainable, like a maiden straight out of the stories of courtly love. But this dress is very out-of-place in the rest of its scenes. I think it was a poor choice to show it in the early Tudors promo shots, too. -TheRisenFalcon

This is unusual and is rather different to any other dress on this show. The floral pattern is nice but isn't anything Anne would have worn, it just isn't her character. The dress itself is lovely but fails as a Tudor gown. However, Natalie suits it a lot so she gets away with it, being this beautiful!
Grace_B

This dress was just a complete fail, sorry.&#;:/
The floral pattern is lovely, but it's far too heavy. It might have been used during the period, I'm not sure, but I doubt Anne would have worn it. The little puffy things at the top of the sleeves is more of Elizabethan style. The off-the-shoulders style ruins it as well as the semi-attached sleeves and again, is completely innacurate. However, it does suit Natalie.&#;:)
-KatherinetheQueen

EW! The bare-elbow thing is so not attractive! The off-shoulder is inaccurate, and the pattern reminds me of my grandmother's bed spread! Do. Not. Like. I like the earrings, though.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

Thiss dress had so much potential. The floral pattern was very pretty if a bit s, but the style completely ruins it and she looks no better than a courtesan. With such a simple pattern they should have kept the style simple too, but the off shoulder cut and complicated style of the sleeve, both puffing and leaving the elbow exposed, completely ruins it.
latristessadurera.

Comments: It looks like they nicked a granny's year old curtains and cut it up to make this horrible mess! Nasty! Lady History.

Not keen on this dress at all; I hate the sleeves and I'm not keen on the pattern either.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

Is she bare elbowed? If yes, it looks stupid. If not, it looks it and just doesn't go at all. I don't like its off the shoulder, dislike the little puffballs. Not sure if i like the material either. The floral pattern is nice but its too heavy.
amore_angel

I don't care for the design of this gown (or any of the off-the-shoulder creations in this series, they remind me of Ren Faire Wench Garb! Plus, the semi detached arms just look silly) but the fabric itself is very beautiful. I'd love to know where it's from. - Boudica

I loved this dress when I first saw it, although I do agree with Boudica that the semi-detached arms looks a little silly. But I love off-the-shoulder dresses, or any type of clothing, and the fabric is incredible. - carteremily

When I first saw this dress I was not to sure of it. But it has grown on me. I especially love the cut and how Natalie/Anne's hair was loose whe she wore it goes perfectly with the dress.
-
QueenAnneBoleyn

Oh, well the off the shoulder idea doesn't really appeal to me. Her hair is gorgeous in that scene. It's almost a dark reddish brown. I even tried to get my hair colored the same exact way. I loved her hair that much. lol. I like the dress well enough.
-GoldenAged.ER

Don't think AB would have dressed quite so provocatively as befitting her rank.

karenofbethany

It looks like a curtain that my grandparents would have. Too heavy and i hate the puffs on the sleeve
mary_bess_edward

Sorry, but I think this costume is a "miss". Don't care for the off-the-shoulder design and the fabric reminds me of curtains.
- offwithherhead

Wonderful. Simply wonderful. This is my favourite Anne's costume. The design and the pattern, the colours. Simply amazing. -LadyLorhen

Im not a huge fan of the pattern but I think the off the shoulder look gives it a modern tinge that makes me like the dress even if it isn't something Anne would have worn! I also love this scene which gives it an extra bonus!
-A_Tudor_Lady

I love the pattern, but would prefer it if the dress was not off the shoulder and had attached sleeves. But the pattern is so lovely I can over look those minor flaws ;p
-AnneBoleyn87

This gown pretty much reminds me of curtains.
-automaticeyes

I love love love this dress. It's possibly the best dress of season 1.
~Dakkietudor


It's very romantic but definetly NOT Tudor. They would have never showed that much chest and arm. Antoinette 2

This Gown would have been more accurate if it was not off the shoulder and if there was a shift worn under it. You would see a shift poking out in the parts of the sleevs where her elbows are showing.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

I like everything about this dress except for the fabric. That should be different since Anne was supposed to have good taste.
MademoiselleBoleyn

this dress only looks good in the promo shots.
anneboleyn21

awfull absolutley awfull the creator should hand in her resignation dreadfull work here
amethyst_pisces

As much as I like her costume, seriously I really dout they would allow see through outfit in the Tudor Court.

To flowery for me but i think it suits her
katzklawz04

Love the dress, she looks amazing in it. The only criticism I have is the open elbow sleeves, it makes the dress look untidy & not finished.

The Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors WikiAnne Boleyn's - Field of Cloth of Gold Dress
Natalie Dormer as Anne BoleynThis is honestly one of my favorite Anne Boleyn costumes. Yes, I can only really see the top of the bodice, but I think it was the perfect choice for her first appearance (in the royal presence). My one gripe is her headpiece; it looks too gauche. But this dress is so stunning, I'm just surprised Henry didn't take notice of her sooner! -TheRisenFalcon

I agree with KatherinetheQueen, we can't see enough of the gown. But of what we can see I adore the rich red she is wearing for the sleeves but the white section dosen't look like a real gown, more like a night dress that she has worn, or even underwear, which, for Tudors, is not a good look!
Grace_B

Hmm, well to be honest, we can't see enough of the gown to comment, only the top part of the bodice. I agree with TheOtherTudorGirl, the white part looks fit for a nightgown. I love the red, but I don't like the way it's used, it gives it a jacket kind of style.
-KatherinetheQueen

I like it, although the bodice looks like a bust-flaunting night gown.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

The crimson sleeves go well with the pretty lacey, ruffled bodice. The simple nature of the dress compliments the chunky B choker and stops it from looking chavy, however, the headpiece ruins this a bit.
latristessadurera.

From what I can see of this dress I like it, red with a lace bodice, it works. I love the braid in her hair in the first picture
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

This is more Anne's style. The rich, seductive red with a pretty lace bodice.
amore_angel

Natalie looks so pretty in the first photo! I only just read the other boleyn girl and I love how it describes the way Anne moved and glowed and was always the centre of attention. I think this dress (well at least the top of it) is amazing and its just the sort of thing i would imagine anne wearing! I want it!
-A_Tudor_Lady

I love old-fashioned red dresses(most of them).I really like this

We can't really see much of this gown, how can we really make much of a comment on it?
Charlie_Beth-Hayden

I love this gown and I think it is very suiting for Anne's character and the scenes that we see her wearing it in.
MademoiselleBoleyn

I absolutely love this dress. It goes so well with her signature 'B' necklace.
Lady_Amber

I love this dress but I wish I could see the rest of it.

Oh, wow. What a marvelous color for Natalie. Now THIS is more like it - how I think Anne should look in the early years of her ascendance. Apart from the awful, puffy sleeves and the rough-looking gold lines on the bodice, which I really don't care for, I rate this costume very high. -TheRisenFalcon

Natalie looks amazing in red and gold together. The jewels on the bodice look lovely but I'm not fond on the puffy sleeves. The thick embroidery has gone slightly over the top though.
Grace_B

I really don't like this one. The only things I like about it is the red and gold, since their my favourite colours, and was used at the time and the fact that the colour suits Natalie so well, but apart from that it isn't a very good gown. The puffy sleeves are more fit for Elizabeth. The embroidery is just a bit over the top with all the stripes.
-KatherinetheQueen

The patterns clash. I don't like it. The colour looks gorgeous on Natalie, though.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

The seductive red is gorgeous and the gold on the bodice is amazing. However, i hate the sleeves and looking at the full length photos, perhaps there is a bit too much red in the outfit?
latristessadurera

Not really my taste, but the colour is amazing and suits Natalie well, I also like how the skirt splits to reveal the red underskirt with the golden stripes. And it fits Anne's rise to power.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

I like this colour, but not the style. Anne's hair looks nice though. Lady History.

My only issue with this dress is the little stuffed shoulder rolls. They are too much. Other than that, I think it looks very striking and pretty
the_most_happy

The colour is stunning, but i think they went overboard on the embroidery. Way too much. I do like the pattern on the bodice but the stripes are too much, especially on the sleeves. On the full picture it looks too red. Would be a good xmas dress
amore_angel


I love this dress I think it is absolutely beautiful! The jewellery is lush to! I love how the neckline fits Anne/Natalie. I wish I looked like that!

Amazing, so royal! LOVE THE EARINGS!
- A_tudor_lady

Such a gorgeous color!
-automaticeyes

The colour is amazing, but i think there is too much of the gold embroidery and it ruins it
mary_bess_edward

hmm it's goodI love her red earrings
BoleynGirl


It's stunning, elegant and royal. The embroidery with the "rubies" speaks of her position. Antoinette2

This Gown looks like it would have been worn by Elizabeth rather than Anne since it belongs in Elizabeth's time rather than Anne's. You just have to look at the sleeves to know.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress is so fantastic. It really shows how much Anne has risen in power. Also, some people did wear sleeves like this they were just way more commen in Elizabeth's time (Joan Bergin talks about it at the very beginning of the costume page).
MademoiselleBoleyn

I like this dress even though it is more Elizabethan than Tudor.

Red is so Anne Boleyn colour
katzklawz04

One of my favorite dresses from season 1. She looked so pretty and sophisticated in this dress. Booklvr44

A dress fit for a queen. I like it.
Lady_Amber
This one I like! The colour really suits Natalie and the dress has something "tudor" about it even if it isn't from that particular period
LouiseTudor
Anne BoleynAnne Boleyn
This is a very unflattering gown. I don't like the color at all, and I certainly don't think it suits Natalie. However, it is suitable for the scene, as it makes Anne Boleyn, this usually vivacious woman, seem suddenly cold and aloof. - TheRisenFalcon

Blue is a lovely colour but it's obviously not Natalie's colour. It is a fantastic dress itself, but isn't the best of Natalie's and I couldn't see Anne wearing it.
Grace_B

I absolutely love the blue, but it doesn't suit Natalie at all and I don't even think the real Anne would have worn this colour. The sleeves are Elizabethan, not Tudor.
-KatherinetheQueen

I love it, but it doesn't suit Natalie at all. The neckline doesn't fit her well.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

The shade of blue is so lush, but it does not compliment Natalie's colouring. I think it would suit a blonde better, like one of the Jane actresses. The floral bodice is very pretty and the sleeves would have neen too if they were not slashed.
latristessadurera

Love the bodice and colour.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

I think the blue washes her out a little. Anne suits more rich colours. Lady History.

Lovely bodice embellishment, but I think the neckline perhaps does not fit her very well. Needs to be lowered a bit to make the shoulders sit up and fit better

I like the dress from the sides. Don't like the bodice or the split sleeves.
amore_angel

My only issue here is that the sleeves would probably look better with an under sleeve puffing out of the slashes. It just looks too bare, but the color is lovely.
-Brennalarose

Lovely dress and colour. Don't think it suits Natalie's tone but its very pretty
mary_bess_edward

I agree with mary_bess_edward, it's a lovely dress but it doesn't suit with Natalie's skin tone, but I don't like the sleeves.
-Nan_Bullen

As above, this gown would have most likely been worn by Elizabeth rather than Ann, and there should be a a shift puffed through the slots in the sleeves.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden


This dress is so beautiful although it doesn't really suit Anne's character in my opinion.
MademoiselleBoleyn


beautifull dress and it suits Anne just right.
amethyst_pisces

Not a fan of this dress. Too pale a color on her and I hate the open sleaves. Yeah too Elizabethan!

I do like this dress but I agree with others who have said that it doesn't fit Natalie very well. The color also drains her & it should of be worn by someone with lighter hair.

I don't know what it is with this blue but I don't think it suits Natalie at all
LouiseTudor
Anne BoleynAnne BoleynAnne Boleyn
Anne
I'm so happy with the top of the bodice; I've seen a lot of off-the-shoulder necklines throughout the show, so this is a welcome change, accuracy-wise. I really don't like the colors, though. I don't mind simple - in fact, I rather like the simpler patterns - but I think, at the very least, red should be the dominant color on the bodice, not the gold. Perhaps a more subdued headpiece is well. So, not my favorite. But because of the more accurate square-neckline, I can't hate it. - TheRisenFalcon

Because the bodice is glittery it looks as if the hole dress is glitter coated and sparkly all over, which is just going way too over the top. I think it Anne of Cleves looked better in it, I don't know why.
Grace_B

I agree with Charlie_Beth_Hayden, this dress looked much nicer on Elizabeth, but even then, I didn't particularly like it. The bodice just looks horrible with the red velvet and the red and gold glitter just went overboard snce it continues into the skirt. I don't know, it's just a bad outfit overall and the headpiece is just as bad. I would have loved to see her wearing a French hood. I can't believe they didn't include them on the show, especially since both Anne and Katherine Howard wore them frequently.
-KatherinetheQueen

This gown was used in The Virgin Queen miniseries starring Anne Marie Duff. You could really see the amazing detail of this gown in it. You can't really see it real well on The Tudors, but you guys should see the detail in The Virgin Queen. Pictures from it should be uploaded here for Tudors fans to see.
Charlie_Beth_Hayden



It's a horrible dress to begin with, but the random red on the bodice just kills it. The headpiece isn't my favourite, but it looks amazing at the same time. I think the necklace only barely saves it.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

It is a very glamorous but equally ugly dress. The bodice is quite inspiring with its gold and red glitter, but as usual they took a good idea too far and ruined it by continuing it into the skirt. The headpiece is too big for her and looks rather Amazonian than Tudor lady.
latristessadurera

I really hate this dress. And that headpiece don't get me started. Bad outfit overall.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

This is an awful dress to put on Natalie. It goes way better on Anne of Cleves in season 4. Doesn't fit well either.
Lady History.

The material and mixed colour is really unflattering, especially with the random bits of red in the bodice.
amore_angel

This dress is awesome! I love all the detail and even though the headress is not of my style its undeniably beautiful!
Good job who ever made it! Natalie/ Anne looks so young and beautiful!
-A_tudor_Lady

The headpiece is amazing but i think its a little OTT. I hate the dress though. I hate the split down the corset and the material for the skirt is not a flattering colour
mary_bess_edward


I really like this.The jewels,the dress I find her amazingThis dress was also used in the BBC series the virgin queen
BoleynGirl

Like the headpiece. Hate the dress. The split makes it look like a road sign.
Antoinette2

I do like this gown, but the sleeves should be belled at the elbows and a poofy undersleeves under the bell part of the sleeves. Also, Anne would be seen wearing a French Hood rather than that Hindi looking Tiara.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden


This dress is so unflattering on Natalie and probably would be on anyone. I think the headpiece was worn by Katherine earlier in the season and if that is the case, maybe the producers and designers were trying to symbolize Anne's rise and Katherine's fall by having her wear it.
MademoiselleBoleyn

i hate this dress!
anneboleyn21

in the dinner scene when Henry says to Anne whilst shes wearing this outfit he says
"did you see they were all staring at you"
well wearing that contraption on her head im not bloody surprised!.
amethyst_pisces

Hate the dress, hate the headdress. Why cann't we see her in a rich tudor gown and a cute french hood. Why is this such a chalenge.

Very over the top
katzklawz04

I hate the way her skirt is sewn to the bodice. It's like there's weird flaps, and everything's way too over the top for me.
pretty_historian

I hate this dress. It's too fussy & just doesn't suit her slim figure at all!
Lady_Amber

Opening Credits

The Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors Wiki
Lovely! Very accurate dress, but for the sleeves (not sure what the designer has against bell sleeves!). I can see Anne Boleyn wearing a gown like this at court. And yes, I agree that it would be more stunning with a red- or purple-tone. But this is actually in my Top 15 Costumes list (the court version with the free-flowing hair, not the one that looks more like a riding habit). - TheRisenFalcon

The style is one of the most accurate for the period out of all gowns throughout the whole series. It's a shame it's slightly plain because it is one of the dresses of Anne's that she actually may have worn and it suites Natalie quite well.
Grace_B

I agree that's it's slightly dull which is such a shame because it would have been a gorgeous dress and accurate for the period and probably something Anne would have worn. The sleeves should be bell sleeves and the neckline would have been adorned with jewels. I like the fact that they didn't go overboard with the floral pattern like they did on one of her prievous dresses.
-KatherinetheQueen

I will says it's a tad on the boring side, and I would have liked it if the sleeves were the bell sleeves. All in all, I like it.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

This is such a boring dress. The colour is bland and does nothing for her complexion. The bodice is too plain and the skirt looks like a vintage s quilt. It looks charming enough from the back but just plain boring at the front. I hate the feather cap but do like the tiara.
latristessadurera

I actually love this dress. I think the cut and the simple (for Anne) fabric and even the pale color look amazing. I like the way it splits in the front as well.
-MarquessPembroke

I really like this dress. Simple yet elegant. I like how the skirt splits. I'd like to see how it would look with bell sleeves.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X


This dress is beautiful. Its simplicity is good considering the gorgeous fabrics used. Fits well and the pleats on the back of the skirt look amazing. That hat is brilliant! I don't care that it's Elizabethan, it looks fantastic
the_most_happy

The colour is lovely. I'm not too keen on the split in the skirt. I'm not loving the bodice either, its a bit too plain with such a plain, neutral colour. I also dislike the werid shaped hat and way too much feathers.
amore_angel

I love, love, love this gown! I want, want, want! - Boudica

I love the way the skirt trails behind her and her hair. Could have made this in a brighter colour though. Lady History.

I so totally agree, it's exquisite.
Jewels 68


Beautiful, although I would prefer it with "trumpet" sleeves - VivatAnne

Lovely but not one of my favourites. I think the colours should be more bright and more jewellery is needed to complete the look.
-
QueenAnneBoleyn

It might look better if her hair was up. How many times does she wear this gown anyway? Yes, very dull and plain, but I still like it.
-GoldenAged.ER

Where is the head dress. It says somewhere on this costume wiki that everyone always wore one. Look at her fabulous posture! -karenofbethany

Absolutely stunning gown!! Here again, Natalie looks her most beautiful when her hair is down and the jewellery is minimal.
- offwithherhead

I love this dress so much! Its fabulous! I think the pattern is plain which is good because otherwise it would be too much but instead its perfect! defin in my top 5! And I love it when Anne/ Natlie wears her hair out!
- A_Tudor_Lady

So elegant!
-automaticeyes

For some reason it looks better in the top pictures rather than the bottom. Maybe because the lighting is a bit darker and doesn't show all the flaws. I also hate the hat. It doesnt suit Natalie at all.
mary_bess_edward

Love this fabric. Natalie looks fantastic.
Antoinette2

One of the swans got caught in her head.
karenofbethany

BoleynGirl

I loved Natalie with this dress at dance, that was actually the first time I saw her =) and it looks awesome with the hat.
-Nan_Bullen

I like this gown better with the hat. I've stated what the sleeves should be like before, Should I repeat it?
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress is so pretty and I actually like the big floral print that they used, which is a rare occurance! Natalie looks very elegant in it.
MademoiselleBoleyn

i love this dress without the hat. I love the way it looks on her and the colors.

The headpiece is so ostentatious! I can't stand it! ARGH! However, this is one of the few pastel-colored gowns that I think looks great on Natalie. It is so tasteful and elegant. - TheRisenFalcon

I'm not too fond of the headpeice but the dress itself is immense! I think it's lush, the colour really suits Anne but it isn't great together, a bad mix. The style is nice, but the colours are icky together!
Grace_B

Urgh, it's that horrible headpeice again! The only thing I like about this is the gold on the skirt, but the colours clash and they just look so random together. The shade of blue suits her. But I really don't like this dress, it just looks tacky.
-KatherinetheQueen

That yellow part looks like it is going to fall off. The headpiece looks a bit tacky, too.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

The blue dress is lovely and i adore the simple yet very pretty pattern. The gold skirt however, does not compliment the colour or the actual dress itself, and looks poorly constructed and attatched.
latristessadurera

I think this is probably my favorite Anne Boleyn dress. This clearly states she is on the rise and I think the scene when Wolsey comes back to court this dress is his first warning that he is going down! Lady History.

I love the blue part of the dress and the bodice, not so keen on the gold overskirt though. And that headpiece is awful.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

hmm, not a favourite of mine. I'm put off by that overskirt-it's overkill
the_most_happy

The blue part of the dres is stunning. I love the flowers on the bodice. I don't like the golden skirt though it just looks like its been pinned on last minute.
amore_angel (second edition since first was deleted)


What I love watching The Tudors in high def, so you can see all the exquisite detail of the costumes, and this is no exception. The unusual fabric color. embroidery, and the rich full skirt makes this such a beautiful piece. The sleeves are my only point of dissent, they just look like they should have been designed a different way (of course they're not historically accurate either) either trumpet or bell shaped would be nicer. I also think I prefer the smaller headpiece in episode (bottom right) although I can see why the huge headdress would be appropriate for the scene in which Wolsey first realizes Anne Boleyn's a raising star.
-Boudica

Yes Boudica, I thought the headdress was "over the top" but now you bring that up, it looks like their reasoning was to show her as a 'rising star'. - MsSquirrly

I love this! I don't agree that the head dress was to much I actually think it looked exquisite and went perfectly with the scenes it was in. Gorgeous colours as well.
-
QueenAnneBoleyn

The head dress looks foriegn. Not Tudor like. Maybe if they took off the top part of it and left the bottom piece it wouldn't be so weird looking. I think it was appropriate though, just not to my liking. I liked the second head piece. As for the dress, it's beautiful. I love it.
-GoldenAged.ER

Love the dress and the colors, but I have to agree about the "to big" head-dressit is too much. In the pictures to the left, Natalie is wearing the same dress but with two different head piecesin the first your eye is drawn to the head piece and the second, your eye is drawn to her smile. Sometimes less IS more.
- offwithherhead

I like the blue part of the dress but the yellow bit ruins it for me. They should have kept it simple.
mary_bess_edward

Don't like too much the headdress: it seems the one Nicole Kidman weared in Moulin Rouge. India Style. The costume too, isn't one of my favourite.

The thing that I like most about this outfit is the headress. It says hey look at me but in a good way. Love the color but not the design. I want that headress. - Lil_angel

Boudica said it all for me! Love the dress, needs more sleeve, prefer the smaller head dress but understand the big one! Great! I love the Blue and gold together on Natalie/Anne
-A_Tudor_Lady

Gorgeous color and headpiece for sure.
-automaticeyes

I didnt get the random yellow outskirt with this gown. That is my only complaing, I love the headdress, again Im into Star Wars and over the top works for me sometimes-Anne'sCurls


She's very very beautiful in these photos
BoleynGirl

I'm not too much of a fan of this gown, I don't like the blend of the two colors together like that. The Hindi-like tiaras always seem out of place. And again with the tight sleeves!
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

I LOVE THIS DRESS!!! She looks so pretty in it and totally like a queen although the pearl tiara is so much better than the other one.
MademoiselleBoleyn


This dress looks good in the promo shot to and without the head pieces.
anneboleyn21

Once again no french hood and this dree looks more Georgian than even Elizabethain.

This would make a scrumptious winter riding habit. I can't imagine how Anne could tolerate wearing such a costume in the spring or summer months, and it doesn't look quite right indoors. However, I think this dress is gorgeous; it would be wondrous winter attire. - TheRisenFalcon

This dress is adorable, It really suits Natalie too so it's such a shame it isn't really tudor. I agree with KatherinetheQueen that the pendant would look better as a pin, i love it though!
Grace_B

I do love this dress and I adore the waistcoat, but it isn't Tudor, it's more Victorian. I don't like the pendant as a necklace, it looks so much better as a pin.
-KatherinetheQueen

This is one of the few dresses I like, but it looks so much better with the pin instead of the necklace.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

I would say this looks more Victorian than Tudors, but the upper half is lovely. The fitting is amazing and i love the waistcoat which gives it more shape. The two colours go together well, it would have looked amazing in a winter wonderland scene. However, it looks awful in the last photo, i don't know what she did to it but that lace thing ruins it.
latristessadurera

I really like this dress and it looks better with the broach in the fourth picture.
~ TheFreeSpirit-X

This dress is OK, but I think it should really belong in an Alice in Wonderland production. My first thought. Honest! Lady History.

TheLadyNatalie, I think you're right in saying this was a riding habit. It's still nice though. I like the way the pendant moves from her necklace to the front of her bodice, very versatile&#;;) and again, I love the hat
the_most_happy

This is quite a pretty dress. The colour looks magnificent on her, she does dark clothing better. I also like the little waistcoat effect on the dress, it gives it style and a better fitting.
amore_angel (second edition since first was deleted)

One of my least favorites. The bodice looks ill fitting, and it looks to harsh and bulky for Anne. And It looks like there's pipe cleaners on her bodice and hat.
-MarquessPembroke

I really like this dress, my only complaint is that to me it looks somewhat lke a riding habit. Maybe it's just me, but it has this masculine vibe going on haha. -TheLadyNatalie

I just noticed that. To me now it looks like a uniform for an officer during the Revolutionary war with England and the Colonies of America. lol.
-GoldenAged.ER

Not one of my favoritesI'm not sure whyjust something about it. I do, however, love the necklace. - offwithherhead

There is something about this one that I like. I love the black and white together. I want it. - Lil_Angel

mary_bess_edward

There's something about this dress that makes me love it! it's my favourite dress.
-Nan_Bullen

I agree with theladynatalie, this looks more like a riding habit than a regular gown. However, it could also be a traveling frock. Traveling frocks have that look as well.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress manages to make her look regal even though it is one of her more simple gowns.
MademoiselleBoleyn

the best riding outfit in the show!
amethyst_pisces

I have seen this dress in two different Elizabethain moves but I love the way they have redesigned it to look like a tudor riding gown on her. It's so pretty!

I love this dress! It's classic yet sexy. I think its looks better with the pin instead of the necklace. She rocks it!
Lady_AmberAnne BoleynAnne BoleynSleeves aside, I think this is a brilliant riding habit. I'd rather see black skirts (more stunning contrast), but the bodice and the feather-bedecked hat are irresistible and I'd rather like to own this myself! - TheRisenFalcon

This dress is not tudor! The hat's cool, but not the dress, it looks like somebody's just gathered this bits of fabric and sewn them together, I wouldn't be surprised if they had!
Grace_B

Loving the hat, but the dress itself is awful. It looks like a bunch of fabrics all thrown into one and all the patterns clash. Plus, it looks more Elizabethan.
-KatherinetheQueen

Too many clashing patterns, and I would have liked it a bit better if the bodice was tied up properly, instead of it all loose and open. Bleh.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

Too many clashing materials thrown together.
latristessadurera

Too mix-and-match for my taste. Hard to know where to look. But another fabulous hat, complimented by Natalie's glorious hair
the_most_happy

UGLY! UGLY! UGLY! Hate everything except the hat. Lady History.

This is just so mismatched. The sleeves and skirt should at least match even though the fabric of both is hideous. And the bodice is so chunky it makes her look fat. They should have used a smaller feather in the hat as well, it takes away from her face. This outfit makes her look middle aged.
amore_angel

Its a wierd dress and Im not really sure what to make of it, but the hats cool. I dont like the sleeves at all but Its an ok dress!
- A_tudor_lady

I did not like this dress. It looked like it was 2 or 3 outfits combined into one and it didn't work. Nothing seems to fit with the other fabrics.-Anne'sCurls

The corset is vile. The sleeves and skirts don't match at all. The feather in the hat just makes it worse. Big no no!
mary_bess_edward

Again this looks like a gown that Elizabeth would wear rather than Anne. The sleeves are more of an Elizabethan period.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress is just tacky and it doesn't even fit her that well. I highly doubt Anne would wear this, especially if she was trying to make an impression on someone.
MademoiselleBoleyn

Not a pretty dress on Anne.

I don't like this dress, it doesn't fit her well & the hat is just gross.
Lady_Amber
Anne BoleynAnne BoleynCharming! Natalie wears this so well that the inaccuracies don't bother me very much. The black-and-white look serves an excellent contrast, and I love how the costume's simplicity makes it seem so very elegant. - TheRisenFalcon

It may look Elizabethan but Natalie really suits it. I agree that most of Anne's gowns aren't tudor, more elizabethan or a few victorian! But 'Riding clothes' are written all over the gown, just for Elizabeth!
Grace_B

Again, another Elizabethan gown! That's the main problem with a lot of Anne's dresses, they just shout Elizabeth. The sleeves are nice and would have been worn for a riding dress. I don't like the open bodice.
-KatherinetheQueen

I kind of like it, but the sleeps look random, and the bodice should finish lacing up. I think I like it after that.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

Such a lovely, i think Sarah Bolger's Mary would look beautiful in this. I like the simple colours and style of the skirt and bodice, and the vintage patterned sleeves. I wish we could see more of the skirt but Anne never was very ladylike haha. The feathered veil is a nice addition.
latristessadurera

amore_angel, I agree. Side saddle would have been infinitely better for showing the draping of the skirt, which looks as though it's pretty cool. other than this she looks amazing, and the little veil is cute
the_most_happy

This is really plain and slightly boring. This doesn't look well as a riding habit. Lady History.

She doesn't wear this well. Its such an elegant dress i think she should have sat side-saddle here to show that elegance. Would be a nice outfit if the sleeves weren't so puffed.
amore_angel

Next time I go riding Im wearing a dress like this! Natalie looks so elegent, sitting tall in the saddle in such a lovely dress!- once again, love the hat! Defin in my top 10
- A_tudor_Lady

Sleeves are a bit dodgy but apart from that everything else is gorgeous. Love the elegant veil!
mary_bess_edward

Again this is what Elizabeth would wear, not Anne, look at the sleeves!
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

Don't understand why they couldn't find a proper side saddle for Anne to ride in. I've seen low budget films that still have their leading ladys riding side sadle. Hopeless!

I'm undecided about this dress, love the hat though!

Oh, I do love this! Natalie's hair, the beautiful earrings, the iconic "B" seed-pearl necklace, and the color are sheer perfection. Now, add bell sleeves and remove those ridiculous waist adornments, and I'd call it a perfect dress! I especially love it with the elegant purple cloak. This is in my top ten. - TheRisenFalcon

These rich wine reds look stunning on Natalie as Anne and it's the type of colour she probably would have worn. It is not tudor though!!!! This really annoys me, right colour, wrong style!! For most of Anne's gowns too!!! Nobody would have worn sleeves this short in the period and the V shaped bodice wasn't fashionable in this period.
Grace_B

I agree with TheOtherTudorGirl, red looks stunning on Natalie and was also known to be Anne's favourite colour, so I'll give this dress praise for that, but yeah, it just looks too Victorian. The V-shaped bodice style didn't come till later and the sleeves are too short.
-KatherinetheQueen

The style is about years too early. And the sleeves look like they were an afterthought. I love the red on her, but not the style.
Not stylish enough for Anne.
-MarquessPembroke

It looks a bit too 18th century for my taste, considering this is the 16th century. It looks great on her, anyway. Red is Natalie's best colour.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

A beautiful dress. It looks more Georgian or pirate princess than Tudor, but is simply amazing. The burgundy bodice is lush and the brighter shade of red for the skirt creates a lovely variation. The black lace on the sleevs is so simple and yet so inspiring. A very well thought out design.
latristessadurera.

The sleeves are very 18th century France, which is odd, and it looks as though there may even be a bit of a bustle at the back there. The patterned sections of the dress are exquisite, but all in all I just think it doesn't fit the era enough, even with creative license.
the_most_happy

Sleeves look odd. Bodice is less structured than her other dresses. Colour definately suits her though. Overall not one of my favourites. Looks better with the cloak on. Love her hair. Lady History.

I don't like the panels around the waist but other wise its a very beautiful dress. The colour is amazing. The detail on the bodice is stunning and i love the short, laced sleeves. And the plum cloak goes well with it.
amore_angel


I love to see the difference in gowns from the time when Katherine was queen (The big frumpy look) to when Anne as queen (The smaller sleeker look) This is deffinately one of those bigger dresses. I like it much more with the cape then i do in the two pictures to the left. -TheLadyNatalie

yddib

I quite like this. Very girly and fun. Shows Anne's sense of fun and charm.

I like that this better reflects her life before Henry, and the "B" necklace is fabulous. - offwithherhead

Another Fabulous red dress. Goes grest with her complexion and hair. I want it. - Lil_Angel

I love this dress when Anne is wearing that gorgeous purple coat over the top and with that headress! I so want a "B" necklace! Natalie/Anne looks so beautiful!

Beatiful dress on a beautiful woman. Very renaissance looking. Nice, smal headpiece. Antoinette2

I just love it, specially with the purple coat. Gorgeous dress.
-Nan_Bullen

The only complaint that I have about this gown is the sleeves, these sleeves, I think first appeared in the time of Marie Antoinette. Other than that, I love the dress, and can see Anne wearing it, only with the more traditional Tudor Bell sleeves. I also love the cloak.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress is beautiful and probably one of my favourite Anne dresses. It fits her so well around the chest and waist and it is very flattering. I love the flaps around the waist too which draws attention to how well it fits. The colour is divine and extremely sexy, the colour of lust. I love the colourful but toned down threading on the bodice and how it has little rubies sewn on to it. The gold is a wonderful and equally rich combination. The sleeves are gorgeous, i love how they are so tight on the arm but then flare out at the opening and the black lace on the cuffs makes it sophisticated and a little sexy at the same time.
milkofhumankindness

This dress is so pretty. It really shows of Anne's spunky, fun personality. I also think the cloak is very pretty.
MademoiselleBoleyn

The best Anne Boleyn pre queen dress!
amethyst_pisces

Not the best Anne Boleyn dress. It makes her look frumpy. It's more georgian than anything.

Love this dress its my favourite of all her dresses
katzklawz04

It's a nice dress, but it's too Georgian.
pretty_historian

I love this dress but I think it looks like a dress from the pirate times. Still looks good on her though & the color is just beautiful.
Lady_Amber

An amazing dress that suits Natalie very well!

Episode

Unflattering colour, VERY unflattering patternand it gives her a "Renaissance-Festival-wench-girl-with-a-heaving-overflowing-bosom" look. Not my favorite. - TheRisenFalcon


The sleeves are % Elizabethan and I think the pattern is unflattering, the fabric isn't nice either. She dosen't suit peach or light pinks. However, apart from the sleeves, the dress is tudor style, especially the square neckline.
Grace_B

Another Elizabeth dress and the colour doesn't suit her. I don't like the fabric either.
-KatherinetheQueen

It may not be her best colour, but it looks gorgeous on her. I like it. One of my favourites!
TheOtherTudorGirl5

Pink is not a very Anne colour, it is too soft for her. The colour does not suit Natalie's complexion at all.
latristessadurera.

This scene is quite funny, and although I don't really like the pattern, it is made well and fits her beautifully.
the_most_happy

Very pretty. Pink makes her look soft and ladylike. Like a lot.
Lady History.

I'm not loving this dress. Giant pink spots aren't that appealing, especially all over the dress. They should have kept it to either the bodice or the skirt and definetely not use it on the sleeves.
amore_angel

Pretty, but not my favoritesomething with the fabric materialneeds a solid color somewhere to offset the pattern. - offwithherhead

This is one of my favorite dresses she wears in season one. I love the colors and especially the pink. The sleeves fit her arms nicely although I am not a fan of the puffs at her shoulder. I also like how there are two skirts and one of them flows outwards. I know she had the blue dress that had this design in yellow but it is much nicer when it is of the same design as the rest of the dress.-Anne'sCurls

This dress s so fun! and so different to a lot of Natalie/Annes dresses!
- A_Tudor_Lady

I love the material they used for this dress!
-AnneBoleyn87

Its a nice dress fit but giant pink polka dots? Ewww!
mary_bess_edward

Again it looks like something Elizabeth would wear during Mary's reign.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

The fitting is superb and i love the subtle padding in the shoulders. The material is too shiny and the pink does not work well with Natalie's features. Despite the circles the dress is very plain and doesn't have very much going for it.
milkofhumankindess

I think this dress is very pretty and looks very nice on Natalie.
MademoiselleBoleyn

Very romantic.

Anne's Lady in Waiting dress Season One
Anne_FeastAnne_Feast 1
In my top five. This gown is magnificent! The color, the bodice, everything but the sleeves. It is so becoming and makes Natalie stand out without being too ostentatious. I'm not a fan of the veiled or the free-flowing hair look, but I've always been so impressed with this gown. - TheRisenFalcon

This is, by far, one of the best dresses from the whole series! She looks lush!!! I cannot get over how beautiful it is with the pins and jewels and the skirt and the sleeve pattern. You can see Katherine in it too!! I adore it, to die for! I want it!
Grace_B

This is definately one of Anne's best dresses and you can see Katherine's style in it. The embroidery and brooches on the bodice is to die for and for once, they haven't gone overboard. She looks so sophisticated and this also is something that Anne would have worn as a lady-in-waiting since she really liked to stand out.
-KatherinetheQueen

I think my explanation is quite clear when I say this is one of her best dresses and I want it. NOW!
TheOtherTudorGirl5

The mixture of blue and grey is very flattering on Natalie, and those sleeves are amazing.
latristessadurera

've always thought this dress was particularly unflattering on Natalie, who has such a lovely figure. I think the bodice makes her waist look wide. the embellishment is great though
the_most_happy

I think this is actually my favourite Anne season one dress. She looks sophisticated in it, it definetely has Katherine's elegance in it. The colour looks good on her and the sleeves are to die for with the stripes. And the bodice is stunning with the embroidery and broaches.
amore_angel

I actually like this one even though it's a little sombre. Everything fits well and the embellishment makes it. Lady History.
Agh! Yet again, another one of the "Katherine of Aragon" dresses, as i like to call them. The designs are lovely, but I personally like Anne's Ladies' dresses more.
-TheLadyNatalie

I like the details of this dress.Imagine the yellow color of anne's lady-in-waintg with the details of Katherine lady's dress.-Jes89

I love this dress. Everything about it! It definetly has the "Katherine" vibe. Is it just me or does Katherine's gowns just get darker and darker as her mood and health demise? The detail on this gown is amazing. I would totally wear this.
-GoldenAged.ER

Definitely a dress better suited to Katherine. Natalie does better with color. - offwithherhead

Everyone bashes the gowns of katharine's ladies in waiting and I have to come to their defense. Anne's gown is is so beautiful much than the one's her own ladies wear. I wonder why she was allowed to have her own specific gown.I love everything about it. The shiny silver, the skirt, the bodice, the sleeves, and especially the designs on the front. I would buy this and wear it to the mall!-Anne'sCurls

I'm with you Anne's Curls! Antoinette2

Love the color and overall design of the dress. I would want it. - Lil_Angel

I love this dress sooooo much! Natalie/ anne looks so youthful and charming. No wonder Henry was mad for her! The headress is sweet and The detial on the boddess is wonderful! DEFIN IN MY TOP 5!
-A_tudor_lady

A very Katherine dress. Pretty nonetheless
-Automaticeyes

The style definately has teh Spanish influence from Katharine but it is still beautiful. The detail to the front is simply lovely.
~Dakkietudor

Once again, it is a Elizabeth gown rather than an Anne gown.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

A beautiful gown. The fitting is perfect except in the sleeves where it looks a bit baggy. The colour is wonderful and i love the combination of blues and greys. I love the twist on the sleeves, the darker material with bands of a subtle, lighter material accompanied by beautiful threading around it. The detail on the bodice might be slightly too much but it stays tasteful and true to the outfit.
milkofhumankindness

I love this gown. Everything about it is so beautiful and I would wear it.
MademoiselleBoleyn

the spanish style of Katherinea ladies are quite frumpy but theyve made this outfit work reli weel with Anee bit too much embroidery on the dress perhaps but it works well for her and she looks stunning!
amethyst_pisces
Not a great dress but I know its a uniform for Katharine's ladies.

I love this dress so much. I just think it looks superb on her.
pretty_historian

Nice dress, I love the sleeve detailing.

You can really see Katharine's taste shine through this dress and I think it would be something a lady-in-waiting would wear

The Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors WikiThe Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors Wiki
She looks so innocent and fresh-faced, which I suppose is the point. But I agree with Grace_B that Mary's dress in this scene was prettier - in fact, more what I'd expect from Anne, even as a young girl. Lovely hair-piece, though. - TheRisenFalcon

I agree with TheOtherTudorGirl5 that Anne looks like a peasant here, unlike Mary's dress. It may be unflattering but Anne's wavy hair really compliments her look and it is brilliant!
Grace_B

She looks like a peasant girl who couldn't afford a more flattering pattern. What in the world is this?! Surely Anne's style is better than that!
TheOtherTudorGirl5

A boring dress that is extremely unflattering.
latristessadurera

The chemise is sweet but the dress over it is a big, hideous lump.

This is awful! It makes her look like a peasent! Lady History.

This dress reminds me of the movie "Ever After"! - Boudica

Pretty. Anne/Natalie looks soooooo young here!!

This does look like a dress from "Ever After" Boudica. It is very young and girlie. Well done. - offwithherhead

so young and pretty! natalie/ anne looks so innocent. she has no idea here that she will be queen!
- A_tudor_lady

Aw! She looks so darn sweet!
-Brennalarose

It shows the great development in her character from when we first see her here to even when we see her next with her father. The childishness and such from her personality is gone.
~Dakkietudor

This looks more closely like a country peasant gown.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

The dress itself is horrible. It is baggy and makes her look a bit big. The colour is dull, the pattern is plain, she looks no better than abeggar girl. That being said the sleeves are charming and bring a romantic quality to the outfit.

I like the sleeves on this dress, but the material is tacky.

I'm afraid I have to agree with Grace_B's "chunk of Nan's sofa" comment. This costume is so bizarre! I'm not sure what to say about it except that her French hood is very pretty, and I like how this really emphasizes her "B" seed-pearl necklace. - TheRisenFalcon

This looks more like a chunk of Nan's sofa than anything else! That cap is lush though and looks fantastic on her long hair. It's also Elizabethan. The fabric is outrageous Ick! I don't like this one.
Grace_B

Urgh, this is hideous! Not only is it Elizabethan, the fabric is just awful and looks like someone just vomitted all over it. It does nothing for her figure either. However, it's great to see her wearing the 'B' necklace and I love the cap. If I'm not mistaken, that cap could possibly be a type of French hood.
-KatherinetheQueen

Bleh. She looks fat. I don't know where to look! The only saving grace is the B necklace.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

It actually does look my grandmother's sofa cushions. The mixture of rich colours clash even though they are used in minimum. The sleeves are so lumpy. If i was Henry and saw her in this i would have ran for the hills.
latristessadurera

ergh. Not a fan at all. I saw this in BBC's "The Virgin Queen" too and didn't like it there either.
the_most_happy

Eeeeeewwwwww! Colour looks like someone threw up after a curry and found some sackcloth to clear up with! Lady History.

The most hideous dress ever. Big, lumpy and heavy. The colour reminds me of what i vomit up. Its a total clash and quite disappointing for a promotional picture. I also hate how her hair is in the first picture, it's too scraped back and she has a giant forehead. In the second picture her head is distorted from her body because of the dress. Not flattering.
amore_angel


I am sorry, but this looks like the material was taken off my grandmothers couch. The prominent bile green color does nothing for Natalie.- offwithherhead

The colors are definitely not flattering her.
-Brennalarose

Urgh. The material is horendous! So heavy and unflattering. And the sleeves :S It makes her head look tiny compared to the rest of her body
mary_bess_edward

The sleeves are what Elizabeth wore during her reign, the whole gown is Elizabethan, but the necklace more represents Anne, too bad we didn't see more of it. Is that supposed to be a French Hood? I can't really tell. If it is, it is a poor imitation.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

I think this is the worse dress of the series. The dominant colour is hideous to begin with but then combining with such extreme colours of purple and red on the bodice makes it look worse. The fabric looks cheap and the shape of the sleeves, as well as the pattern on it, just tops off this huge mess of a dress.

I don't care for the color, and the headpiece is ridiculous, but I suppose the pattern on the bodice is nice and I adore her necklace. - TheRisenFalcon

I love this one! Annoyingly, it is, once again, elizabethan! Does Anne have any tudor gowns? Despite that, it is lovely and she looks beautiful in it, it really suits her.
Grace_B

It's beautiful, but this isn't a Tudor gown, it's Elizabethan! You can just tell from looking at the headdress that it's Elizabethan. I do love the jewellery though.
-KatherinetheQueen

Regardless what people say, this is one of my favourite outfits! The headdress is actually quite lovely! The jewellry is to die for, as well.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

From what we see the dress is beautiful. The pattern on top of the bodice makes it decorative but no too much.
amore_angel

Can't really see the dress, but the jewelery is stunning! Lady History.

It's a shame they didn't use this dress and jewelry more in seasons 1 and 2 as I think it makes anne look very important and regal&#;:) - AnneBoleynFan74

I think this dressis the one she wears at the end of the first episode of the 2nd season.

The headpiece looks more Elizabethan, but ah well. Maybe it's supposed to be an omen of Elizabeth's reign. Can't really see much of the gown to even comment.

Anne-DressAnne
Stunning! The sleeves are Tudor-style! I love this color and the dress matches my image of Anne Boleyn on the rise. I don't like her golden skirts; I think two more subtle stripes of gold with a delicate golden pattern in the center would be lovely. I'd also choose a brighter gold for her headband. - TheRisenFalcon

This is amazing! Finally, a tudor gown! I have fallen in love with these rich wine red colours. Natalie is fabulous in this and her hair is amazing! Lush! It may be simple but elegant and Anne would have worn this and the headdress. % Anne Boleyn!
Grace_B

I'm pretty sure this is exactly the same purple dress she wore but without the gold embroidery on the bodice. It does look a lot like it. If so, it looks absolutely stunning without the embroidery. This would have been a wonderful dress if the skirt was stiffened and she had jewels adorned around her neckline. She would have also worn a French hood and her 'B' necklace with this dress, I imagine.
-KatherinetheQueen

It's simple, but the deep color looks so elegant and sexy on Anne. I would have liked to see more detail on the bodice, but still gorgeous.
-MarquessPembroke

I find it simpe and yet elegant. I quite like it.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

Very uninspiring and boring.

I LOOVE this dress, this colour is absolutely glorious. The design is accurate the time and fits her well, and the decoration on the skirt co-ordinates well with the head-band. I want to make something like this!!
the_most_happy

A bit plain, but the fit is spot on. Would have looked better with a hood. Lady History.

I could be wrong, but isn't this the same dress as the one she wears in s01 ep10 - where she said about wishing all spaniards were at the bottom of the ocean - just with the added pattern on the front of the dress? I like it&#;:) - AnneBoleynFan74

You know what? I think you're right! It is the same dress,I noticed that the front part of the dress is exactly the same. On a not though,I loved this dress. - QueenEmy

Rather plain and boring, not even an eye catching colour like some of her stunning red dresses.
milkofhumankindness

This gown looks more like it! Only there needs to be pearls and jewels sewn onto the neckline for her to look more like Ann. I guess the Headpiece is okay, though it could look more like the French Hood.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

I don't think it is the same dress. The dress from looks like it had purple lining in the sleeves which was very noticable. The dress looked more purple, whereas this one looks like a reddish/burgundy. I also THINK but am not sure, that this dress has a wider skirt. Anyway I like the gown, probably because it is one of the rare times they brough in the bell/trumpet sleeves-Anne'sCurls

I love this dress! Its just lacking a jeweled neckline and a french hood. But other than that I love it.

I love the sleeves and the rich color.
pretty_historian

Like the color but I think it's too plain.
Lady_AmberThe Tudors Costumes&#;: Anne Boleyn - The Tudors WikiMy Sole Mistres"I adore this. She really does look like a maiden out of the tales of courtly love - beautiful, cold, and unattainable. It looks enchanting and brings out the color of her eyes. Lovely. - TheRisenFalcon

This is such an unflattering pattern, and is all over the place! The style is tudor though! None of Anne's gowns seem to be perfect, do they?!
Grace_B

Such an unflattering dress and the material and colours are just hideous. The style is quite accurate though.
-KatherinetheQueen

This is her better "peasant girl" dress, although it still is a tad unflattering. The random bits of colour is just ick.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

The pattern on the bodice and on the shoulder is amazing but the mixture of colour in the dress is ugly. The dress is also rather heavy looking, not very flattering.
latristessadurera

The material is horendous, its a mixture of different colours but all mixed together like a smoothie. I hate the crisscross pattern on the sleeves and the blue and bronze diamonds make it look even more of a mess.
amore_angel

YUK! Where did the get this material? A skip?! Lady History.

I like the dress well enough, its very pretty actually. But I like a lot of the other gowns better.
-A Tudor Lady

The pattern is a bit plain tgough the colours of blue and the neutral are beautiful. The shade of red is quite lovely though when it is mixed with the orange and yellow like it is in the skirt it looks horrible. I don't like the crisscross of the sleeve.

I abhor the gown, the pattern is ugly even if it does have nice colors. It does not look like anything Anne would wear at all.

How do you know what she would or wouldn't wear, Charlie-Beth-Hayden? Where you There?

Too many patterns for my liking.
Lady_Amber

I don't dislike this dress as much as everyone else. I think it is a little nice but again I can't get a good look at it. I think it is not a court gown, but a downtime gown. She wasn't expecting to see Henry and although I don't think she looks bad at all, but I do think this is a little more low key than her other gowns because she is just chillin at home. I think the diamond pattern on the bodice is actually rather appealing. And I like that it seems the skirt starts under her breast bone as opposed to on her hips like the majority of gowns.-Anne'sCurls'11
Anne[Untitled]
The cap is charming, and she looks lovely with free-flowing hair. However, the outfit's structure all but dwarfs Natalie's slender frame. It hardly looks like the kind of attire that the stylish, elegant Anne would choose to wear. - TheRisenFalcon



This is Elizabethan, but it looks fantastic on Natalie, I love it! The fabric is strange, but I like it.
Grace_B

I like this outfit and I don't at the same time. Helen Mirren wore this as Elizabeth, and agian, it is definately another Elizabethan dress. I don't like the colours or the fabric, but the style is nice and it looks good on Natalie.
-KatherinetheQueen

One word: Ew. The only saving graces are the earrings and the hat. I love that feather! haha

The only redeeming feature of this outfit is the feathered cap and the more i look at it, the less i like it.

I'm not sure what to say about this riding habit other than it has Elizabethan sleeves. Other than that, I'm just not sure what to say.

It does look very bobbly to me too. The colour isn't the most flattering, neither is the padded sleeves and shoulders, though i do confess i love the style of the collar and the feather hat.

TheOtherTudorGirl: I couldn't agree more! The colour and fabric and the whole style of it is just unflattering and isn't accurate at all. Seriously, SHORT SLEEVES! The French Hood looks bad too.
-KatherinetheQueen

I hate it. Hate it, hate it, hate it. The sleeps aren't accurate at all, the colour is unflattering,-regardless as to who is wearing it- and the hood and skirt don't match! Worst dress of season 1, I think.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

ergh, nothing about this is flattering. I respect the designer's aim in modernising the series, but the short sleeves are just ludicrous
the_most_happy

Short sleeves and a high neckline look stupid and weird. Lady History.

The colour is uninspiring. The short sleeves make me hate the entire outfit even though i can't see the full bodice or skirt. It really just ruins it.
amore_angel

Now that is a French Hood! Though the gown, even if we don't see much of it, what we do see is not only ugly but short sleeves??? they did not exist until centuries later.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

Gowns all wrong but like the hood.RAF

She doesn't look pretty in this dress. Not flattering at all.
Lady_Amber[Untitled]AnneAbsolutely lovely. This is one of those dresses that suits the scene and the mood so well. I like the gown's colour and cut (though I would rather see a square-neckline). Other than that, I have no complaints. Oh, and the necklace is beautiful. - TheRisenFalcon

She suits this one! I think she looks lovely. However, it looks like a christmas gown and it would be lovely for christmas tide. I think Mary wears this in Season three at christmas tide with The King and Jane Seymour.
Grace_B

The neckline isn't my favourite, but the colour suits her, the jewelry works, and she just looks so lovely.
TheOtherTudorGirl5

I think Mary wears this in season three?And I'm almost certain Elizabeth wears it during her "I will have no man rule over me" tirade in 'The Virgin Queen'. I'm not really a fan of the round neckline but other than that it's really pretty. The fabric is beautiful
the_most_happy

The colour suits her down the ground and the necklace is lovely. Something should be in her hair though. Lady History.

The colour is beautiful on her. Red is Anne like black and gold is Katherine of Aragon. Its a beautiful dress despite its plainess.
amore_angel

The neckline should be more squared and adorned with pearls and jewels. The sleeves should be Tudor Bell sleeves, make those alteration and you would have a very nice gown that can look like it belongs in the Tudor court.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

I love this gown, I just wish that we saw more of it.
MademoiselleBoleyn

Love it, red is her color. Lovely necklace too.
Lady_Amber

Was it speculated on this site that this gown is worn by Princess Mary during Christmas in a later season? I for one like the the way the gown is made and the amount of clevage shown is provacative without being overly slutty. Anne should have worn this in S2 when she is celebrating the holidays with Henry and wearing that horrible "show everyone my beast" gown.-AC'11

She wears it nicely as a dressing gown and Jane wears it well as a court maternity gown, however i think it looks better on Jane as it goes so well with her complexion.

The pattern is strange for a start - Is it floral? Or what? And it isn't at all tudor, Neither is it Elizabethan. To be honest, i think, if anything, it's more the style of a nightgown.
Grace_B

I'm with latristessadurera on this one, I really can't stand this outfit. Plus, it's too plain for Anne. Although the tiara clashes with the dress, I do love it and would have loved to see her wear it with something else.
-KatherinetheQueen

The colour and pattern of the gown are horrid and uninspiring, as is the fitting though i appreciate this is because she is pregnant. The pearl headpiece doesn't go well because it's too bright for such a dark outfit and it clashes. A gold or silver tiara would have been more appropriate. The horizontal slash in the sleeve looks cheap.
latristessadurera

I'm not a fan of the dress but I love her little tiara.
- TheFreeSpirit-X


The colour is so dull and i don't like the band around her her elbow.

I'm not a fan of the dress, but I LOVE the tiara! It is so beautiful! I wish she had worn it more in the season.

I NEED to own this tiara. It is just perfect! Anyone know of any like it? Whenever I describe it to anyone they look at me as though I am simple. - TheMostHapi

Grace_B

I'm thinking Sleepy Hollow. It is pretty and the black and white compliment each other. The corset is a bit fussy but the white fur is lush and i like how the theme carries on in her jewellery and tiara.

I love the pattern on the bodice and her cloak and tiara. Her jewelry is also amazing.

I really don't like this. The frill around the neckline and the trim are awful and it makes her stomach look fat. Lady History.

I don't like the pattern on the sleeves. But the trimming around the bodice and the embroided pattern is beautiful. She looks unnaturally flat chested in the first picture though.
amore_angel

Is it just me or does this scream Mrs. Claus? Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love this outfit; it's absolutely amazing.-Neta07

Agreeing with Neta07, this does look a lot like something that Mrs. Claus would wear, but I adore the cape that she has on. - carteremily

The pattern on the bodice and sleeves are awful but the fitting is nice. It gives her a flattering chest on the second picture.
mary_bess_edward

The hood is beautiful, I love the stitching on it. The crown and the necklace also. I think the gown looks better with the coat on. It just looks weird without it. I think it's the sleeves on the dress that, for me, it just doesn't mesh well with the dress.
-GoldenAged.ER


Too goth looking,

karenofbethany

yddib

I don't like this at all.

Black is not the most flattering color for Natalie. I think this dress would have been better suited for Katherine. - offwithherhead

I have to defend this outfit, I like the hood and the jacket. It reminds me of the one she wore in the church when the priest speaks against her and Henry. The colors are what really makes this ensemble stand out. I never saw the underdress in the show and I agree I don't like it. But with the cloak on I think it's nice. -Anne'sCurls

I don't really like this gown. It's all so busy and unfocused. The detail is amazing but a little too busy.
~Dakkietudor

Definitely one of my least favorites. I don't like the cut, trimming, sleeves, hood/cloak or color. It just doesn't work. Maybe it would have looked better on someone else with different coloring or body type.

I thought this gown worked perfectly for this scene. It's all about black and white, death and life, dream and reality. Her paleness is appropriate here.
Antoinette2.

I love this gown and the cloak. I can see Anne wearing it, but alter the sleeves to be Tudor sleeves please.

I love this outfit, especially the embroidery on the bodice. Antoinette2 makes a really good point about the outfit. Creepy dream though!

Isn't this what she wore in Season 1 at some point? I thought so I love the colour, but it dosen't particularly suit Anne.

I like the colour and I love the bodice. The cloak in the third picture is cute. I like her necklace also.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

Anne wears this is season 1 and I didn't like it then. It looks better with the overcoat. Lady History.

II like the colour. But i don't like the bodice and the split sleeves.

love this gown, the slit sleeves are a little odd. But besides that it's really cute!
-TheLadyNatalie

I've seen this gown on a number of things i.e Elizabeth and a Phillipa Gregory book The Virgin's Lover but in those they tried to make the blue look really harsh and on this they made it baby blue which makes you admire the dress more-Neta07

Oh wow. This gown is just beautiful. Blue seems to be another color that just compliments Natalie/Anne. Blue and Red. I love the detail on the bodice. So pretty! I also like the crown used in the other pictures.
-GoldenAged.ER


It's funny that she is pregnant here and the dress design makes her waist look tinier than ever!

Blue is definitely one of the better colors for Natalie, but it brings out the blue in her eyes, which unfortunately should have been brown. - offwithherhead

This is Elizabeth's gown and it needs a shift peeking through the sleeves.

This dress is lovely, it's perfect! It's the type of thing she would have worn. And, for once, it's tudor! It may not be my favourite, but It's perfect! I love the white furs too I think they're lovely! And the hat is nice too, I don't know about the bobbles though.
Grace_B

I love this gown, it's just perfect and Anne would have definately worn it. I can't see a single flaw in it. It's not my favourite gown, but it's definately one of the most accurate.
-KatherinetheQueen

I like the richness of the brown and the soft, white fur as it makes a wonderful winter outfit. I'm not too keen on the fur hat with the bobbles.
latristessadurera

This dress is so authentic, I love it. I like the colour, it's so rich. I love the square neckline and the jewels around it. From what I can see of them I like the sleeves, they look like long bell sleeves and I love the way the skirt splits. Her cloak is gorgeous and looks very cosy, and her hat is just adorable. Her jewelry is nice also.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

The brown is boring but it is almost the only dress bar a couple that are a true tudor representation of dress. Lady History.

Its a nice fit the colour is a bit blah. I like the embroidery around the neckline. I do love the fur cloak but not the hat. Especially those three puffballs.
amore_angel

This was a very happy time for Anne, right on and around Christmas. Henry and Anne exchanged beautiful gifts and she looked as lovely as ever. Although her lifewas inadvertently threatened by the cards, Charles Brandon was banished from court for Anne and Anne was introduced to the king of France as the future queen of England. I wonder if the style of the Christmas gown, especially the deep v low cut of the front was common or if it was exception for the show and the designer?
-Amyburr

This dress reminds me a lot of her execution dress I don't know why but I think it's the simplicity about it.-Neta07

Brown is not the most flattering color for Natalie, but this cape and hat are definitely on my favorites list!
- offwithherhead

Don't like the actual dress itself but I really want that hat and coat. - Lil_Angel

agree with Lil_Angel the hat and coat are the best part of this outfit, especially the bobbles!
-Roxykat

The dress had bell sleeves and the bodice is nice. But I agree the hat and coat are the best thing about it.-Anne'sCurls

This gown is perfect! A perfect Tudor Replica gown and if I am not correct, inspired by the portriat of Anne herself.

High quality detail of the gown's print.This is lovely! But I wish we could have seen more of the purple, I agree with latristessadurera, It's gorgeous. It is more Elizabethan though, annoying thing about most of Anne's outfits!
Grace_B

Elizabeth would have worn this, not Anne!!
-KatherinetheQueen

I wish they would have shown off the purple beneath it is gorgeous. It is the only highlight of a horrible dress, and i ahe both the french hood and the cap. But i think the cap would have looked nice on Catherine Brandon.
latristessadurera

I'm not that keen on the overcoat, but I like the dress underneath, the purple is so rich and sits her. I'm not keen on the ruffle at all though. I like her little hat and I adore her french hood.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

This dress is lovely. I like the ruff and the puffs on the sleeves.But I am suprised this is in here. It should be in an Elizabethan film. Lady History.

I don't like the overcoat, the colour is hideous. But the purple beneath is beautiful. I don't think the ruffled collar suits her or the dress either and i hate the big puffball sleeves.
amore_angel

I'm surprised this dress (spesh with the french hood) hasn't got any comments yet as I think it really is GORGEOUS! I could see the real anne boleyn wearing something like this&#;:) - AnneBoleynFan74

This is magnificent! the pattern on the outside jacket is beautiful as is the pairing of the light purple underdress. I love the slightly puffy sleeves that add a nice detail to the plain long sleeves.
~Dakkietudor

Hate the colour, hate the puff on the sleeves. Hate the embroidery which is keeping the fabric together on the overdress and the hat doesn't suit her head shape.
mary_bess_edward

Jeeze, I hated everything about this outfit in both scenes. There is just nothing appealing about it to me.-Anne'sCurls

I think it looks better with the French hood instead of the little feathered hat in the first pic. But the bronze color doesn't look as good on her as the rich brown of the dress just above this one.

This dress looks pretty authentic.
Antoinette2

This gown is authentic, for Elizabeth, not for Anne. Look at the sleeves in this one and the one above, the sleeves in the one above is more authentic.

It's a beautiful gown but nothing Anne would have worn! She suits the rich red though. I don't know who would have let her get away with this! Not even her uncle, mother or father would have let her get away with this, the ones who wanted Anne to intrigue the king!
Grace_B

Seriosly, what the hell is this?! Anne was a woman of class, sophistication and was a trend setter. This dress just makes her look like a hooker. The slit in the bodice looks silly and would be considered innappropriate for that time. I don't like the detail going down the dress either and I don't particularly like the overcoat. I do love the coronet she's wearing the promotional shoot and the wreath is fabulous, but this isn't a good dress at all.
-KatherinetheQueen

It is a beautiful colour and might have been a beautiful outfit if it wasn't so exposing and had sleeves. She looks like a tart. The wreath in her hair is a nice addition though and goes wonderful with the darker overcoat.
latristessadurera

I love the colour, and the overcoat. I think this dress would be really nice if it wasn't for that ridiculous slit in the bodice.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

Oh My God! The slit in the bodice looks REDICULOUS. This screams Henry's *****, not future queen of England. Like the colour. Lady History.

I hate the slit down the bodice, just looks slutty and doesn't go with her queenly look or the Christmas spirit. I don't like the overcoat but without it she looks ridiculous. She looks less less regal and more medieval porn star.
amore_angel

I hate this dress. First why is there so much of her breast showing? Not only is it inaccurate but it's freakin' Christmas! She should be dressing like a queen and she looks like the king's mistress. But the thing I like the least about it is that it makes her look frumpy and does nothing for her figure. The one good thing I can say about it is the colors are satisfactory. -Anne'sCurls

well, i definitely am obsessed with the picture below even if it doesn't fit in the second season. (my opinion.) she does look like henry's mistress. but the colours of this dress are stunning. and the headpiece is just so beautiful. i think the red goes great with her dark hair.!
still, would have been better for first season.. or something.
-yviilovelorn

The split in the bodice would have been considered inappropriate and too revealing for the times. All in all, something Anne would wear if it had Tudor bell sleeves.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

I like this dress a lot, the colors are fantastic. I highly doubt Henry would have let Anne wear a dress like this though, since he was known to be possessive of her and that would make men stare.
MademoiselleBoleyn

Love the dress but i think the slit is unnecessary its showing to much

I love the dress and the wreath in her hair. The slit's okay, but not in public where if you bend down you're giving a free peep show.

[Untitled]The sleeves are so beautiful! I love them, to die for! But this is not tudor period, due to the sleeves. The lighter colour isn't her colour, due to her skin tone and complexion. But I love this gown, no matter what! It is adorable!
Grace_B

This dress would be more authentic for Elizabeth, due to the sleeves. The colour is lush and so is the embroidery on the bodice. I really like this dress, but it isn't accurate.
-KatherinetheQueen

The sleeves are awful as is the bodice, and the pale colour doesn't really suit her.
latristessadurera

I adore this dress. The colour makes her look very sweet and innocent and I actually like the sleeves and the bodice. I also like both of her headpieces.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

This dress is too plain and I hate the slits in the sleeves. Lady History.

A very bland dress that makes her look very bland herself. Hate the split sleeve. It may have loooked better if they had given her some coloured jewels to wear but instead they chose pearls. Boring!
amore_angel

A beautiful dress and Natalie looks gorgeous with minimal jewellery and her hair down. It all works.
- offwithherhead

This dress is one of my favorites for season two. Natalie looks absolutely gorgeous in simple gowns like this. Makes me wish I could have been in the Tudor era. But correct me if I'm wrong. The first picture where it shows Anne from the side view--doesn't she look like she's pregnant in ? But maybe it's the side view. But overall, love this gown.- QueenEmy

LOVE THIS GOWN. She looks like a very sexy queen. A bit naughty and a little bit nice.

Due to the sleeves this gown would be worn by Elizabeth, it also needs a shift peeking through the sleeves to be authentic.

Anne
AnneThe Tudors Costumes: Anne Boleyn - Season 2 part 2 - The Tudors Wiki
The Tudors Costumes: Anne Boleyn - Season 2 part 2 - The Tudors WikiThis is not a tudor dress, I think. At least not for this period! It isn't Anne's thing, she wouldn't have worn this, even if it was a dress suited to these times. Anne suits the red, she might have got away with it if there was more dark colours but it's mostly yellow. The bodice is strange, with a weird pattern. Everything about this gown is weird!
Grace_B

Hmm, I'm not a fan of this dress and it isn't very flattering. The jacket kind of style is more like something Mary would have worn. It's also great to see her wearing a French hood and the skirt is quite nice, but I hate the bodice.
-KatherinetheQueen

Its not very flattering and she looks huge in it. The bodice is hideous, but the bits of red make it quite charming to look at. I think its one of those dresses that looks good far away but up close is a big, fat mess.
latristessadurera

Love the french hood and the skirt. Not so keen on the rest of the dress, especially the bodice. I do quite like the random red bits though.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

I like the red inside collar, but not much else. Lady History.

I like like the collar, its beautiful but thats the only thing i like. The bodice looks like its had a doilie glued on to it and the skirt makes her look very wide hipped and fat, not the dress but her actual body. I also dislike the red pattern on the skirt.
amore_angel

Another favorite. It all fits perfectly with each other. You couldn't not have every piece of it otherwise the outfit wouldn't work. Another one I want. - Lil_Angel


I love this costume! For some reason it is one of my favorites. Did anyone else notice that in the scene where Anne is wearing this costume (but with a crown instead of French hood) while eating dinner with Henry that the crown is actually the same one Princess Mary wore at the Field of Cloth of Gold?
-AnneBoleyn87

This is simple but beautiful. It fits so well for what is going on in the scene. It's like Anne's downtime but she still has to look good if only for herself. I am in love with the bodice and I have no problem with the kind that smash her breasts down-Anne'sCurls

I really like this, especially the headpiece. The cut and coloring fit Natalie very well.

Very pretty. She is in full flower. A queen, and new mother. And tragedy's waiting in the wings. Antoinette2

This would be something Mary would wear due to the neckline only with Tudor bell sleeves.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This gown is fantastic. I love the bright red flowers on the sedate cream background and I think it really emphasizes how much Anne is settling down into motherhood.
MademoiselleBole

It may not be a fantastic gown but due to the dark colour Natalie really suites it and Anne may have looked quite good in this. I love it myself, actually!
Grace_B

I agree with latristessadurera, this isn't a great gown. It does have a certain charm to it, I mean it suits Natalie and the colours used have huge potential but it just doesn't work for me. It could be something that Anne would have worn though. The jewellery and coronet are amazing.
-KatherinetheQueen

The colours don't go well together and it looks quite tacky to be honest. The bodice is also mismatched from with the sleeves.
latristessadurera

This dress would be nice if it wasn't for the OTT necklace. I like the sleeves.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

The bright colours suit Anne even though it hurts a bit on the eye. Princess Mary wears this in season 4 I think. Lady History.

It looks like it was a gold dress and she's spilt stuff down herself, its horrble! I like the cut and fitting but the colour just makes me hate it, especially with that chunky necklace.
amore_angel

Very rich colors, like a queen- Padri 81

Another favourite for me, everything just works so well together and makes her look every inch the queen! I also love this with the red cloak over the top too. - AnneBoleynFan74

I absolutely love this gown! the pattern is beautiful and I love how the sleeves have that triangular drop but there is still a long sleeve under it. the colors are gorgeous as well.
~Dakkietudor

It's a bit garish. I don't like the colours together it looks like my Christmas table cloth after we've eaten and spilt wine all over it. I don't think the sleeves go with the rest of the dress for some reason.
mary_bess_edward

It seems a little busy to me, too. The elaborate jewels are competing with the elaborate material of the dress. I would have liked to see this with a simpler necklace or no necklace at all.

Oppulent and grand. Perfect of the Tudor Period. Antoinette2.

I can see Anne wearing this.

I love this dress. It is plain, yes, but I love it! The style is lovely, the skirt goes well with the bodice and sleeves. I love the tiara too! And the hooded cloak is lovely, I adore it!
Grace_B

This dress is great, the only problem is that it's too plain. The neckline should be adorned with jewels. Apart from that, it's perfect. However, I really can't stand the lacy bits she wore on her neck in the first three photos. The cloak is fabulous and I love the pattern on the sleeves and underskirt.
-KatherinetheQueen

I adore the underskirt, the pattern is gorgeous. The rest of the dress is a bit plain. The colour of the cloak is magnificent, i want it so bad. It's a pity she only got to show it off going into the Tower.
latristessadurera

Everything about this outfit makes me adore it. I love the skirt and how it splits to reveal that beautiful underskirt. The long bell sleeves are so amazing. And her cloak is absolutely gorgeous, her tiara is also really pretty. She looks so regal.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

Love the cloak. The colour is too dark, but given the scenes this appears in I suppose its ok. The bodice should have had some jewels on though. Lady History.

The cloak is beautiful, the blue is so rich and makes her looks regal. The dress is simple but elegant which is fitting for the circumstances. I love the skirt and flared sleeves.
amore_angel

Even though this time in the Season was sosad for me I was happy to be able to draw a little comfort from the fact that Anne/Natalie still looked beautiful and there was no way anyone could say Henry discarded her because she was aging or her beauty had faded. The cloak and crown she is wearing is particularly wonderful as she looks so regal and it shows everyone that she is a real Queen. - QueenAnneBoleyn

Anne was always beautiful. She was also always dressed to impress. I love this black gown she is shown sewing in. She looks like a true Queen. The cloak, especially in picture two is one of my favorites. The crown, the hood, she doesn't look like she's under arrest at all. So sad, but so beautiful. -GoldenAged.ER

I love this capeit is gorgeous. Although I don't feel black is a good color for Natalie, the lighting of this scene brings out her beauty. - offwithherhead

Oh my God! This dress and the cloak are beautiful. Even when she is dressed down in the tower it is still beautiful. I wonder if she picked that outfit out specifically so she could look like a royal even while being arrested. The color is wonderful as is the cloak.-Anne'sCurls

Just too add something else, I wasn't under the impression this gown was black. It looked like a green/blue combination to me that kind of matched her cloak-Anne'sCurls

Beautiful! Very regal. She looks absolutely, heart-breakingly beautiful. And with the hood of the cape up, she looks like a little girl, a bit lost. It really tugs at your heart.

This would definitely be what Anne would wear during her inprisonment.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

A very simple dress, love it!

Annabolenna

MademoiselleBoleyn

katzklawz04

Very elegant and simple. It suits her situation perfectly.
pretty_historianI agree that this is one of Anne's best gowns! It is lovely. This is % Tudor and just perfect! Anne suits it too. Okay, there is the V bodice which KatherinetheQueen mentions. But it is fantastic and I adore it!
Grace_B

This is, without a doubt, one of her best gowns. I'm not sure if that colour was used at the time, the V-shaped bodice is innaccurate and Anne actually wore black to her execution. You can definately tell that it's inspired from the portrait of Anne herself by the decoration on the neckline.
-KatherinetheQueen

I like the colour of the bodice but it's too simple even with the pearls. The fur sleeves and the lilac undersleeves are very pretty and make the outdit. I hate the skirt however and also hate the cap. I appreciate its meant to be more functional than fashionable but the top of it really is hideous. And the red cloak, whilst pretty, doesn't really go with the blue and pale look off the outfit beneath,
latristessadurera

I love everything about this gown; the beading on the neckline, the sleeves and the way the skirt opens to reveal the patterned underskirt.
[People shouldn't be complaining about the cap btw, it's not supposed to look nice. It's only there to keep her hair from getting in the way of the sword.]
- TheFreeSpirit-X

This is a lovely dress to finish Anne in. The colour, sleeves, detail and fit are wonderful. Lady History.

The cap is horrible especially in the second picture, whoever said it looks like a school swimming cap was right. Maybe it would be better if it was grey too? I do like the dress though, pity its her death dress. I love the pearls. I'm not loving the cloak though. A dark colour would have been better like blue or perhaps even black.
amore_angel

This is one of my favourite Anne gowns from the series; it's really beautiful. But I think the real Anne wore black to her execution? Well, either way, this dress is still stunning. The only thing that ruins it is the pointed bodice (should be straight across for this period). - Shadow_in_the_Sun



This dress is actually pretty close to what Anne wore to her execution. Her dress was grey damask and opened over a red petticoat- so they ALMOST have it right. -annethequene


This is a favorite of mine. The dress is so simple yet elegant.- AB_Fan07

I hate this scene soooo much that it is impossible for me to say that the dress is a favourite of mine. I love how she still looks like a Queen even after all the accusations and at the hour of her death. And still beautiful!
- QueenAnneBoleyn

The gown is nice but i'm not too sure about the lilac part of the sleeve. Hate the white cap it looks like those awful school swimming caps. Don't like the cloak with the outfit either though i suppose she was going with comfort over fashion

This is a favorite as well. Too bad they used it for the execution part. It really would have been nice earlier in the Series. Yes, I agree, I do believe what the real Anne wore to her execution was darker, basically the same design though, simple. Well, at least she went out with style. Long live the Queen!
-GoldenAged.ER

yddib
I love this dress. It's much how I imagine Anne's real dress was for her execution. It is beautiful in its simplicity.

I love this dress, but not the scene. The dress is simple, but elegant. - offwithherhead

Purple the color of royalty, even while dying she still looks the part. This is not as nice of a dress as the one she is taken to the tower in but it is still beautiful. Out of all the dresses I've seen Anne executed in, this is the best. -Anne'sCurls

According to historical accounts Anne wore a dark grey gown with crimson petticoats. With most Tudor dresses at least part of the petticoat showed and with crimson being the color of martyrs religiously, one wonders if she were making a statement. Also she wore a crimson velvet cape with ermine trim, a sign of her nobility. She looked and acted every inch the Queen she was. Lady Phyre

Lady Phyre, your comments agree with what I have read about Anne's apparel for her execution. The dress is my favorite. This whole episode makes me cry from beginning to end. So very sad.
Antoinette2.

She went out with style, that's for sure. -automaticeyes

This must be one of Anne's most beautiful dresses she wore throughout Season 1 & 2. The purple gown and the crimson red velvet cape is basically telling you that even though she's going to die, she wants to die well-suited and as their beautiful queen of England. -Tudorgirl

This dress is simple (for Anne) but gorgeous. I love the deep square neckline; it's very flattering. I also like the simple decoration of the neckline, the patterned underdress and the furred sleeves. I don't think the red cloak goes with this very well, though. It's a bit overpowering for the dress underneath.

This would definitely be what Anne wore to her execution, only the cloak should have an ermine mantle for it to be accurate.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This is another favorite of mine and Anne looks every inch the queen when she dies.
MademoiselleBoleyn

I really hate this, the only thing I like is the fur. But the dress itself is horrible. Plus, you can see her elbows. It needs a shift poking through. The headpiece is Elizabethan.

While this gown is accurate, it is too plain for Anne, she had an oppulant style.

AnneI couldn't see the real Anne wearing it, but Natalie really suits it! It works in this, but wouldn't in reality. This isn't perfect for the time however. It is too plain and and the jewels are no help either, it may be lovely but not vibrant or alluring. Just mellow and dusty.
Grace_B

This is such a boring, uninspiring dress. Anne had a more elaborate style, she wouldn't have worn this. The sleeves and V-shaped bodice are innacurate, the neckline is too plain and I'm not sure if the colour was used at the time. A richer colour would have been much better and I don't like the embriodery on the bodice.
-KatherinetheQueen

Considering all the wonderful Christmas dresses this series has produced, this is the most dissapointing. The colour whilst pleasant in itself is not very eye catching or vibrant. It is too plain, even the jewels on the bodice don't brighten it up.
latristessadurera

I love the colour and the embroidery though I think it would have looked better just around the neckline.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

This is a nice colour pink, but I'm not completely sure it suits her. Lady History.

I think a richer colour would have been better. I don't like the embroidery going down her bodice either. Looks like she was drinking wine and missed her mouth.
amore_angel

I love the festive headdress with fruits and holly!
~Dakkietudor

I love the color and the jewels at the top of the bodice.-Anne'sCurls

This is an Elizabeth Gown for sure.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden


The producers made it clear from season 1 that the style of the series was Elizabethan. Why mention it all the time?-AC

I love this dress, Anne looks so festive and happy.

Grace_B

It is nice but nothing special. It would have been boring if it didn't have the accompanying jewellery.
latristessadurera


I like the colour and the embroidery and her tiara.
- TheFreeSpirit-X


A lovely dress apart from the the embroidery on the bodice which makes a 'V' shape.
amore_angel

This is beautiful, but my favorite color is silver so I was more in love with what her father was wearing.-Anne'sCurls

This is another Elizabeth gown.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

Another one of Anne's beautiful gowns.
MademoiselleBoleynAnneAnne
AnneNatalie does not suit orange, it is plain to see. But her hair is beautiful and the style of the gown is lovely.
Grace_B

Seriously, Natalie does not suit orange. Very few women can pull it off and she is not one of them. The colour itself is lovely but it just doesn't work. I agree with amore that it would have looked better in a paler colour. The embroidery is pretty though.
latristessadurera

I'm not crazy about the colour but I love the nightgown, it's so flowy and I love the sleeves. Her hair also looks lovely.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

She's been tangoed! Too bright to be considered beautiful even though if it was yellow or cream it would look lovely. I hate the cut in the lace sleeve, i really see no point in that at all. The collar is nice though.
amore_angel

I love this robe/day dress. I think it's so pretty, and I love her curls in this scene.-Anne'sCurls

The colour is garish. The sleeves are too much. I do like the cut around the bust though
mary_bess_edward

Love the color. It really brings out the auburn in her hair. Reminds me a bit of "Camelot." Antoinette2

The color is great and fits her personality well, but it is too modern. Anne wouldn't have a modern looking nightgown or robe. I'm sorry.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

I like how the robe looks like it would have back then and I like the nightgown, it's very romanesque.
MademoiselleBoleynAnne
AnneAnneThis is so strange! Strawberries! It's an alright dress itself but I cannot help but agree with the others, it's a bit like a strawberry cheesecake!
Grace_B

HAHA, I have to agree with the other comments, it really does remind me of a strawberry cheesecake. This isn't anything like a Tudor gown.
-KatherinetheQueen

A horrid dress, it looks like she put a white dress on and someone just splashed paint on her. The red bodice is horrid, as are the random bits of green. The short sleeves look very misplaced as well. With the tacky necklace, this would have been more suited for Christmas rather than the boring dress she wore in season 2, with a few alterations of course!
latristessadurera

Ew. What the heck?! Hate the sleeves so much. Scratch that, hate the entire dress.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

Haha i agree with the strawberry cheesecake comment. The red on the bodice is just horrid and the green on the sleves and panels looks so wrong. I also hate the short sleeves. Even the beautiful necklace looks awful here.
amore_angel

So I can't believe no one's commented on this dress yet!!! This was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE scene in Season 2! I think the dress looks a little like it's missing sleeves but other than that, a great color for Natalie and very appropriate for Anne seducing Henry!

She looks like a strawberry cheesecake. I like the short sleeves but other than that, no, this is just so wrong.
mary_bess_edward

Oh my god. this is my favorite gown. all about these gown are so sexy and she looks so sexy too in it.

I agree with mary_bess_edward, except that I don't even like the short sleeves - they seem too anachronistic for this time period (common for this show, I know)

The costumers bent the rules a lot in this series. This one doesn't really charm me. She looks like she belongs on a deck of cards.
Antoinette2.

I agree with Antoinette2 whole heartidly. this is not a Tudor gown, it's not even close.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

He looks sexy!!!
annabolena

It definitely is not something that any Tudor woman would wear but I think that she has worn worse dresses
LouiseTudor

This dress isn't my favorite, but I have to say that maybe she untied her sleeves and took them off in the privacy of her rooms. After all, dancing is hot work in modern clothes, I can't imagine what it would be like in their clothes.
MademoiselleBoleynAnneAnne
Anne Boleyn as played by Natalie DormerI agree, a brighter white would have been better, but I adore it as it is! It looks rather cosy and comfy!
Grace_B

A purer white would have been nicer for this, it looks like a dusty cobweb.
latristessadurera


Looks very comfy and nice to wear around the bedroom; so lacy and flowy. I also like her little bracelet.
- TheFreeSpirit-X


I like the lace dress but i don't like the buttons.
amore_angel

- This has to be one of my favourite dresses. I love the lace look and it is different to every thing she wears. It gives her an innocence.
-theothertudorgirl

Definetly on of my favs as well. So ethereal and charming. Ageless.

She looks Angelic and stunning in this scene and this makes for a very beautiful shift for Anne.But she would never be caught wearing it public for it is only for the privacy of her own chambers.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

This dress look so confortable!!! One of my favorites.
annabolena

This is my favorite robe of Annes. She looks just like an angel wearing it.
MademoiselleBoleyn

So lacy and pretty
pretty_historian

Say, where can I find this, so that I would look like a woman of class like Anne?
Marina de ChampagneAnneAnne
AnneOdd The leopard print is not one bit flattering and this isn't a dress of this period.
Grace_B

I hate the leopard print and this is an Elizabethan dress.
-KatherinetheQueen

No. Just no!
I never realised that Natalie Dormer looks like Whitney from Eastenders, perhaps this is what she is going to look like when she gets her hands on Pat's clothes.
latristessadurera

Way too tacky and the sleeves are awful. It's a really horrid dress. I like her headpiece though.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

Leopard print looks as tacky then as it does now. The shoulder pads makes it worse and the high collar is unflattering. She also looks quite chunky in this.
amore_angel

I'm seeing the Tudor version of Kat Slater from Eastenders here
mary_bess_edward

Is it just me or does the pattern on this gown look like a leopard pattern? But that's probably me. But still,I like this gownexcept the shoulders
QueenEmy

It's too busy for me. I'd like it better with a plainer underdress that doesn't compete with the pattern on the overdress (which does look like a leopard print).

I really like this costume. It is not leopard. The fabric on the overcoat is lush an oppulent. They could lose the shouldar pads but they do give it a little bit of authority.
-Antoinette2

This better belongs to Elizabeth in it's style, though the print looks too much like lepord print.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

Leopard print
MademoiselleBoleynThe Tudors Costumes: Anne Boleyn - Season 2 part 2 & Season 4 - The Tudors WikiAnneAnneI quite like this dress and the pale pink (I think it's that colour) and the black go well as two colours but it's way to modern, Victorian or Edwardian or perhaps even more recent, but not tudor, no matter what!
Grace_B

This looks more Victorian/Edwardian to me, anf it is just pure tack.
latristessadurera

Nothing special. I like her jeweled snood though.
TheFreeSpirit-X

The top looks like sequins. The skirt doesnt match the top. She looks chunky in the middle.
amore_angel

The only thing I like about this is the jeweled caul, or snood. I hate the hat, and the bodice is so padded it makes her look fat.

Too faux Diana for me. Lose the snood. -Antoinette2.

I think that this riding habit would be better suited for Elizabeth even if I don't like how it looked sequined.
Charlie-Beth-Hayden

What is that print? It looks awful, I don't know what it is! And the fur is horrible. I don't like this one, It's not usual that I would say I hate a tudor gown but this one is just % ick!

Grace_B

I have to agree with the other comments, I like the style of the robe, but the fur would have looked so much nicer if it was real and the print is horrible.
-KatherinetheQueen

The designers really messed up with this one. Far too modern and it's horrid anyway, especially with the fur that looks cheap and fake.
latristessadurera

Too modern. Looks comfy though.
- TheFreeSpirit-X

What on earth is that pattern? Looks way too modern. I do like the fur trimming but the modern print ruins it.
amore_angel

I like the robe well enough, but what is the print supposed to be? It looks like pop art.

The following article is written by Bess Chilver, costumer and Tudor dress expert.

Women’s Dress at the Court of King Henry VIII

It is without doubt, that the clothing for noble men and women in the reign of King Henry VIII were exquisite. Portraits show a woman’s silhouette is conical in shape whereas the men’s silhouette is wide and square. For both men and women, fabrics are rich and luxurious using sumptuous silks and satins, the finest linens and velvets with abandon.

Sir Henry Guildford. c. Artist – Hans Holbein.

Queen Katherine Parr c. Artist – Master John.

The fabrics and decorations used are only part of the story. Each garment worn adds to the complete ensemble. To modern eyes, the number of layers worn seem excessive, yet each layer is necessary to the whole.

Tudor Garments

So what are the garments and layers that are worn by women in the Tudor Period? The minimum number of layers actually worn would be four: Smock; Petticoat; Kirtle and Gown. Depending on where within Henry VIII’s reign one was, other layers such as the farthingale, forepart and partlet would also be worn. Headwear would be the finishing touch.

Jane Seymour, Queen of England. Detail of Embroidered cuff. c. Artist – Hans Holbein.

Smock

Smock of fine cambric with wide sleeves, … of fine linen”
25 Jan, / – Lord Monteagle’s Goods.
Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic – Henry VIII Vol. 3

Everyone, no matter what their rank, age or sex, would have had enough changes of linen to last at least a week. The higher the rank, the more changes were available. It was a matter of pride to wear clean linens every day.

The smock in the upper ranks would be made of very fine linen, as white as possible.  The necklines and cuffs could be exquisitely embroidered in black-, red- or white work. Some may have been worked with an early form of lace called drawn threadwork.

In the early part of Tudor period, the neckline was usually square in shape, following the line of the bodice. Later on, a high necked smock was worn which had a small standing collar edged with a frill – this would eventually become the ruff of the Elizabethan era.

The sleeves would be finished with a small narrow cuff and frill. This, and the neckline, is usually all that can be seen of a smock in contemporary portraiture.

Elizabeth, Lady Audley Detail of Embroidered Smock Neck c. Artist – Hans Holbein.

Petticoat

“…a peticoate of scarlet, the upper bodyes of crimson tapheta…”
Royal Wardrobe Accounts of Queen Mary Tudor.

The term “petticoat” comes from the French for a “little coat” and both men and women wear garments named as such.

For women, it clearly has a skirt and may or may not be upperbodied. Ninya Mikhaila of “The Tudor Tailor” suggests the bodice could be minimal – mostly seen on the back and sides of the body but the front being little more than a pair of “braces” supporting the skirt. This allows for the bare minimum of fabric being used but also minimises the amount of bulk worn beneath the next two layers.

Petticoats are mostly made of a red fabric – red being thought of as a health giving colour. This idea is seen as late as the 19th century.

Upperbodied Petticoat Made and modelled by Bess Chilver

Silk Petticoat with minimal upperbody. Maker – Bess Chilver. Model – Etty.

The first image shows my own petticoat made of an unbleached linen bodice which is lined with itself. A fine weight buckram is used to interline the bodice and is supported by boning of cane. Its fastens via laced on both sides. The skirt is a very fine weight scarlet wool. This petticoat essentially doubles as a “petticoat” and “kirtle”.

The second image is the petticoat made with the bare minimum required for the bodice. It has a deep “U” neckline. The back neckline is a deep “V” shape. It is fastened at the waist with a laces through a pair of worked eyelets. The skirt is made of a silk dupion and lined with itself. There is a lining of cotton wadding to give the skirt a bit of weight.

Kirtle

“5 yds. of white satin for a kirtle.
2½ yds. of red cloth to line her kirtle.”

June Coronation of Queen Anne Boleyn. Inventory of Apparel.
Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic – Henry VIII, Vol 6.

The kirtle was a garment that supported the bust and created the correct silhouette for the period. It was worn over the petticoat, and from the s onwards, over the farthingale.  It seems that the kirtle bodice was stiffened in some way, usually with buckram. This was a stiffened linen which may have had additional stiffening consisting of some kind of “boning”. However, it is also clear, that whatever stiffening methods were used, the bodice of the kirtle was not made in the same way as a Victorian or modern corset is. Nor was it designed to cinch in the waist and torso in the same way.

Side Laced Kirtle. Maker and Model: Victoria Henige

The kirtle depicted above is very similar in construction to my upper bodied petticoat, but is designed to be seen beneath the overgown. It is also side laced and has a stiffened bodice providing a firm foundation for the overgown.

Portraits show a tantalising glimpse of the kirtle – usually at the neckline as can be seen here in Mary Boleyn, Lady Carey’s, portrait:

Mary Boleyn, Lady Carey. c. s Artist – Hans Holbein or School of.

Gown, Forepart and Foresleeves

“…a gown of right crimson satin, to be lined with cloth of gold of tissue…”
Coronation of Queen Anne Boleyn.
Inventory of Apparel. June

The gown is the garment in Tudor Dress which is seen in its entirety by other people. The Smock and Petticoat are very much underclothes. The kirtle is usually only seen peaking out above the gown neckline so this too is mostly hidden.

As the gown is so visible a garment, it needed to make an impact. This is where sumptuous fabrics could be used such as velvets or damasks or Cloth of Gold. The wealthier a person was or the higher the status, the more sumptuous (and expensive) the fabrics.

Headwear

“And as for Mrs. Anne’s French hood, my lady Sussex had, and Mrs. Katharine gave hers to Mrs. Parr”
28 Jan, – Lisle Letters. John Husee to Lady Honora Lisle
Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic – Henry VIII Vol. 3.

Most people, when thinking about Tudor headwear, will bring to mind, images of two headdresses that were worn during King Henry VIII’s reign. These are the French hood and the English or, as is more commonly termed now, the Gable Hood.

It is a common misconception, that Queen Anne Boleyn was responsible for bringing in the ubiquitous French Hood whereas her predecessor Queen Katherine of Aragon and also Anne’s successor, Queen Jane Seymour, both preferred the English Hood.

Early versions of both forms of hood are seen from the latter part of the 15th century. Katherine of Aragon was painted in version of the French Hood as well as the English Hood, giving the lie to this myth.

The French Hood

Princess Mary Rose Tudor, Queen of France c. Artist – Unknown. Pictured with her husband, Charles Brandon

Katherine of Aragon, Dowager Princess of Wales (before marriage to King Henry VII) c. Artist – Michael Sittow

The English Gable Hood

A miniature of Anne before she was Queen , Attributed to Lucan Horenbout

Sketch of Anne Boleyn by Holbein

Whatever one’s status – be it Queen, Gentle- or Working woman – headwear of some kind would be worn. Highly decorated as we have seen for the wealthy but simple linen coifs for those of lower status.

A Tudor Gown in the 16th century was the culmination of the work numerous skilled craftsmen, artisans and merchants. From the silk Merchant to the Weaver; from the Tailors to the Seamstresses to the Embroiderers and Milliners.

The finishing touches are made by the Goldsmith. Pearls and jewels in gold settings are worn as pendants attached to choker necklaces; as brooches on the front of a bodice; as billiaments on necklines and hoods and “ouches” on sleeves.

Truly, the Tudor Noblewoman was exquisitely dressed.
