‘’Daughter of Spain, Queen of England’’
those were the words she said to herself as a child. The day to become a queen came, although it was not easy. But she always made sure that whatever happened, the “goal” should be achieved. I believe you have seen the popular series on Netflix “The Spanish Princess”, and if you haven’t watched it, believe me, it gets better from the third episode.
What is The Spanish Princess based on? The Spanish Princess is based on the years Catherine of Aragon (a role that I doubt anyone better than Charlotte Hope would have played) spent in England, first as Prince Arthur’s bride and subsequent widow, and then as King Henry VIII’s wife. What we all may have noticed are the beautiful velvet dresses and costumes that they started to radically “change” after the marriage of Catherine and Henry Prince of England. (Richer colors, burgundy, emerald green, dark purple, royal blue, like a more shiny velvet).
According to the costume designer Pam Downe:
“The fabric I most used was velvet, in all its many forms be it cotton, silk, viscose, or a combination of each. Velvet was born heavily in the 16th century and was particularly prominent in the English court, it is also a good surface to print on. “
If you want to be the “modern Catherine" then the ‘’Black Onyx Dress” is for you. Such beautiful weaving of leaf motifs and stones with velvet makes this dress even more significant. Long sleeves, structured shoulders, and a full high neck make it appropriate for both formal and semi-formal events. I almost forgot to mention the small folds at the bottom of the dress which emphasizes the part of the thighs. This short black velvet onyx dress is available also in other colors.
Eyecatching and mature? There’s only one way to look like that: BLUE VELVET DRESS.
How to combine this royal blue velvet dress? You can wear it with a pair of silver, blue open-toe heels, or nude-heeled sandals to add a feminine touch to the outfit.
