You might have initially thought to dress up as Meghan Markle or the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. And while the Duchesses are fashion icons, her majesty has sported some pretty incredible looks throughout her life that should not be overlooked for costume potential. The rainbow array of coats she's known for wearing today dazzle every time the Queen leaves the castle and would immediately be recognizable as a costume. Also, I know I've been obsessed with Claire Foy's outfits on The Crown, and although the costumes on the show aren't exactly what her majesty was wearing 50 years ago, they're definitely gorgeous enough to inspire some fabulous Halloween looks fit for a queen.

Elizabeth's influence on fashion extended beyond women's clothing. In the early years of her reign, men's fashion was much the same as it had been under her father and brother, favouring a broad, square silhouette with layers of garments made of rich fabrics. As Elizabeth's wardrobe became more opulent and elaborate, with a more exaggerated silhouette, so did that of her courtiers. Men wore corsets to give them a cinched waistline and stuffed 'peascod' doublets, which gave them a pointed pot-belly, like a pea in a pod. Elizabethan beauty Queen Elizabeth II ruled for 70 years, making her the longest-reigning monarch in British history. Last year, people around the world, especially fans of the royal family, mourned the passing of the ruler. While King Charles III immediately became the new monarch, Queen Elizabeth II will forever be remembered for her role as a respected and admired world leader. Italian Dress of the late Renaissance (1470-1540) Includes instructions for drafting an early 16th c. Italian bodice Bodies, Stays and Corsets: A look at women's supportive garments in the 16th century by Mode Historique (pdf) The Renaissance ideal of beauty was fair hair, a pallid complexion, bright eyes and red lips. Elizabeth was tall and striking, with pale skin and light red-gold hair. She exaggerated these features, particularly as she aged, and other women sought to emulate them.
