An exclusive portraiture exhibit, displaying the portraits of the lavish costumes worn by British monarchs and their courtiers during the 16th and 17th centuries, is going to take place at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace from May10th, 2013.
Titled as ‘Fine Style: The Art of Tudor and Stuart Fashion’, the expo will feature nearly sixty paintings, drawn by the likes of Hans Holbein the Younger, Nicholas Hilliard, Van Dyck and Peter Lely, sourced directly from the personal royal collection of Queen Elizabeth II.
Running till October 6, 2013, the exhibits will not only give an insight into the changing fashions of that period but also help in understanding the social status of the people shown in the portraits. 
The expo includes a William Scrots painted portrait of the young princess Elizabeth I, wearing crimson hued gown, as well as a half-length painting of Anne of Denmark (1574-1619), clad in a richly embroidered lavish dress, drawn by Marcus Gheeradts the Younger. 
The exhibition additionally features a portrait of young Edward VI wearing a russet satin gown featuring velvet trimmed hanging sleeves and embroidered with gold thread and lines of lynx fur.
