Cleopatra "Queen of Queens"

2nd Round at "SL Next Fashion Designer Challenge"

To this day Cleopatra remains a popular figure in Western culture. Her legacy survives in numerous works of art and the many dramatizations of her story in literature and other media, including William Shakespeare's tragedy "Antony and Cleopatra", Jules Massenet's opera "Cléopâtre" and the 1963 film "Cleopatra". In most depictions, Cleopatra is put forward as a great beauty and her successive conquests of the world's most powerful men is taken to be proof of her aesthetic and sexual appeal.

Poulet has dressed Cleopatra with a luxurious outfit as a queen deserves. A top and skirt made of black dyed linen with a gold trim. The "Ankh" ,symbol of life, is part of the skirt and the top as well. The grandiose gold jewelry make this outfit stand out, the crown, bracelets, belt and collar are not valued only for its beauty and precious metals, but also for the magical and spiritual protection they represent.
This outfit is completed with leather sandals adorned with gold pieces and carved and glazed lapis lazuli scarabs wich represent ideas of transformation, renewal, and resurrection in ancient Egyptian religious art.
