Fashion History: The Tutors

One of my guilty pleasures this spring has been watching “The Tutors” on Showtime.  Set during the final years of Henry VIII’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon, the series shows Henry’s infatuation with Anne Boleyn and his frustrations in obtaining a divorce from the Pope in order to marry Anne.  It’s a bit melodramatic and historically inaccurate, but I must confess that I’m hooked.  The people are beautiful, the settings are breathtaking, and the costumes are amazing.  Look for them to win both Emmy and Golden Globe awards in the coming year.

In the meantime, those of you hooked on fashion history might enjoy Showtime’s special series about the costumes, at the bottom of their “Special Features” page.  It’s in streaming video, which you may or may not be able to see clearly, depending on your broadband speed.
