When you look back on her reign, you’ll likely be tempted to think of a queen who’s never seen the inside of a cabinet.
But when you see her in her regal robes, you can almost smell the crown, said Diana Vreeland, author of the new book The Queen in the Regal.
When it came to royal fashion, it’s a very different story.
“In her dress, you get this kind of elegant, sensual, sensuous, feminine feeling,” Vreland said.
She spent a lot of time on the ballroom floor, making sure everything was lined up. “
It’s the regency, and Queen Victoria’s reign, that she’s so obsessed with.
She spent a lot of time on the ballroom floor, making sure everything was lined up.
When she was queen, the ballrooms of Versailles were so crowded that her servants were constantly reminded to do their work in order to prevent her from “losing the mood,” Vreteland said.
It was all about experimentation,” Vremeland said, noting that she and her colleagues in the royal palace would dress in regalia “in order to experiment with different ways of dressing” for the coronation. “
Her regency was a time of experimentation and experimentation, of experimenting with the regal.
It was all about experimentation,” Vremeland said, noting that she and her colleagues in the royal palace would dress in regalia “in order to experiment with different ways of dressing” for the coronation.
As her coronation approached, Victoria would dress like a regal, but she would also dress “like a princess.”
For the most part, the queen would dress up like a princess, but it was more important to her that her dress was well coordinated, Vrelanders said.
Victoria was also a master at using makeup, using “scrubs and other kinds of cosmetics” to create a royal look that was more feminine.
She used a lot more black lipstick, which was not common for a royal, Vretlanders said, adding that “she used a number of very subtle colors that were very flattering to the eyes.”
The queen also wore her hair long and in a bun, Vremels said.
She was also very much into the theater.
She would “play all the different roles” in the plays she performed, which were “more like musicals,” Vreseland said — but that wasn’t unusual for the time.
When Victoria was a young girl, she went to the Royal Opera House, and she would dress as a peasant girl to entertain people.
But Vresels said she’s never heard her describe how much Victoria enjoyed going to the theater as a child.
“I have no idea what the queen thought about it,” Veresels said.
In fact, she doesn’t think she ever did.
“Victoria’s not known for her acting, but I think she was quite the entertainer.”
Victoria’s love of the theater was also apparent during her childhood, said Diane Kiel, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin who specializes in the history of opera.
During her childhood in England, she was the only child in a small group of girls and “she was always a little bit of a tomboy,” Kiel said.
When her parents decided to leave England for the United States, she stayed with her grandmother and her two sisters, who lived in a nearby town.
Victoria “was very, very interested in music,” Kelson said.
Her interest in theater and theater plays and singing, which included singing with her brothers, was “not a very common thing for her,” Keal said.
That was until her mother got a job as a governess for the town, and Victoria “grew up to be a very talented singer,” Kaelonsons said.
Vreels said Victoria loved to sing, so much so that she even had an opera, The Princess and the Pauper, written by a friend who was a concert pianist.
The first thing she did when she became king was to appoint her own cabinet, with her own personal style. “
When she became queen in 1901, Victoria had a vision for the future of the royal family, Vritlands said.
The first thing she did when she became king was to appoint her own cabinet, with her own personal style.
She wanted her royal subjects to have a “style that would be pleasing to her,” Vrelays said. “
She wanted to create her own style,” Vritland said, explaining that Victoria wanted to “make sure she was her own person.”
She wanted her royal subjects to have a “style that would be pleasing to her,” Vrelays said.
So she ordered a collection of gowns that were tailored to suit the individual subject, Vreglands said, which helped her create the “style of regency” for her subjects.
Her crown, a crown of blue and gold, was given to Victoria by her uncle, Lord Mountbatten, who had served as queen for three years when Victoria became king.
He also wore a crown made of a different material. The crown
