Stage and film actress Constance Collier in a Cleopatra costume made from Assuit. Collier starred in Antony and Cleopatra in 1906 to much critical acclaim. The whole image is a wonderful early 20th Century depiction of Egyptian Revival with her costume, pose and the hieroglyphics in the background. #egyptianrevival #assuit #1900s #costumedesign #costumeinspiration
Best laid plans and all that. Although I had to miss any birthday fun due to several days of flare ups, I can’t really complain as despite my silly body trying to be evil, I’m very lucky that my life is filled with love from my wonderful and supportive husband, and to be able to surround myself with beauty from the past. However, I don’t mind saying 😒 fibromyalgia can take a running jump off a cliff onto jagged rocks...🤬
Such a delightful print 😍on this late 20s/early 30s day dress.
