The White Crown is a British historical television series created for BBC One based on the cycle of books by Philippa Gregory, The Cousins' War. Set against the Scarlet and White Rose Wars backdrop, the story follows women involved in a long struggle for the throne, including Elizabeth Woodville. The series combines intrigue, seduction, and betrayal, seasoned with chic costumes.
Essential facts about Elizabeth Woodville's costumes
Most of the outfits in the series were designed by designer Nic Ede. He mixed ten centuries in Elizabeth Woodville's outfits, taking individual attributes from the fifth century to the fifteenth. The most memorable Elizabeth Woodville costume is the ermine-trimmed dress the woman wore for her coronation. Initially, 10 meters of brocade was used to create it, so the weight of the outfit was several kilograms. Another attractive Elizabeth Woodville costume is a pale pink woolen dress.
If the canvases of linen, silk, lace, and gorgeous curls of Elizabeth Woodville correspond to the era, then the absence of wimples and henins – pointed headdresses – catches the eye. Nic Ede admits that director James Kent hates all hats because they cover the face and block out the light.
How to create an image of the 15 century with Elizabeth Woodville dresses
Women's fashion in the 15th century consisted of a long-sleeved dress worn over a kirtle or undergarment with a linen chemise. The sleeves were cut off, decorating them with rich ornaments. Long-waisted silhouettes, popular in the past, have been replaced by high-waisted dresses with pomp over the belly. Instead of a wide, shallow cut, a deep V was introduced to showcase the ornate front of the kirtle.
Complete your Elizabeth Woodville outfit with lace-up ankle boots. Don't forget to style your hair beautifully under a hat with a veil. The veil was supported by wireframes that defined the desired shape and exquisite drapery.
