A teeny tiny dress worn by Queen Victoria

24 May 2011

This rather lovely gown in the collection of the Museum of London was worn by Queen Victoria in 1855 on her state visit to Napoleon III and Empress Eugènie in Paris. The Empress and the ladies of her court were probably dressed up to the nines in the finest creations of the legendary House of Worth, so Queen Victoria no doubt felt some pressure to look her very best!
