Reign: Fashion Favourites

Good morning all :)

As previously mentioned, I have fallen fast and hard for the stylings of the female characters in my now-favourite television series, "Reign".  I'm incredibly inspired by the modern take on the fashion choices as seen in the show and taken aback how they've managed to incorporate both high-end designers, and more affordable brands into their looks.  In addition, how creative they've been in their usage of accessories--necklaces for headbands (I personally love this trick), statement belts, corsets, adding in full skirts to tight gowns...

I had a strong sense/idea as to which designers took up the slots of some of these amazing pieces--specifically the dresses--but I must say how deeply impressed I am as to how many are custom-made by their very own costume department.  Breathtaking.

As I'd assumed, Alexander Mqueen's penchant for the regal black and gold combination can be seen in quite a few of the dresses and jackets main character, Mary, has worn.  Additionally, Oscar de le Renta all but owns half of the show's clothing…No surprise, as he's known for his impeccably elegant designs.

Finally, of course a significant amount of the pieces worn are custom-made, handmade, and vintage.  Though I would kill to have some of the absolutely stunning capes that Mary's worn. *Sigh* Until that time I suppose I'll have to be intrigued and thankful for my love of headbands, statement belts, classic pieces, gloves, off-the-shoulder pieces, and full skirts--they're about to get a royal makeover ;)

I've decided to piece together a few of my absolute favourite, most eye-catching looks from Season 1 (yes, I've finished it off already, guilty) in this post.
