Among all Egyptian women, the infamous Nile Queen was pretty well aware of how to take the classic Egyptian fashion to its next level so as to best enhance her features. She took utmost care in her clothing and in the way she deported herself. Her clothing style had, and is still capturing the imaginations of countless artists and fashion designers. Her outfit consists of a long and tight tunic in fine, delicate material held tight with a belt, or with braces. A thin shawl flows over the shoulder and is tucked into her belt. Alluring colors of red, green, dark moss green with yellow stripes were used. Historical costumes of Cleopatra are very popular, and are an inspiration for many reputed fashion designers in designing their collections.
