I had been asked to join this amazing collaboration, I immediately thought about the most famous woman who made a lasting impact on Egypt, and continues to influence fashion.
The avant garde always prevent stagnation in art by pushing the boundaries. I think Cleopatra was avant-garde at her time with her headdresses , jewelry and dresses Elizabeth Taylor’s role in 1963 was my inspiration first. Her dress features the wide shoulder straps that were an element of many ancient Egyptian gowns for women. The wig features gold ornaments attached to the ends of the hair in a style that’s timeless and sexy. The strong brows and thick eyeliner extending beyond the corners of the eye are characteristic of makeup for women. The Egyptian-style jewelry that completed the costume include a gold armband that embraces the queen’s upper arm and gold earrings.
