Style Icon: Queen Henrietta Maria

Rather than ranting on about Olivia Palermo or Zoe Deschanel, I thought I'd change things up a little and give the lovely Queen Henrietta Maria a mention, let's not forget that style icons very much existed in the 1600s! Wife of King Charles I and queen consort of England, Scotland and Ireland. She wasn't too popular due to her Catholic religion but was a woman who very much favoured the arts and never turned a blind eye to fashion, as you can see from her highly decorated, heavily embroidered, exquisite gowns!
