Queen Alexandra used clothes to fashion her self-image throughout her life and Kate Strasdin's fascinating new book shows us how. From tight tailoring and glamorous evening wear to elegant mourning, Inside the Royal Wardrobe provides an innovative, engaging analysis of how Alexandra led fashionable society. -- Maria Hayward, University of Southampton, UK Inside the Royal Wardrobe is an illuminating and poignant study of the clothes that made Queen Alexandra the most stylish woman in Britain. Skilfully weaving together public and private life, Strasdin shines new light on her compelling story. -- Lucy Johnston, author of 19th-Century Fashion in Detail Kate Strasdin's fascinating book gives us an intimate history of a queen who dressed to impress, and sets the stage for new understandings of the work that goes into fashioning celebrity. -- Alison Matthews David, Ryerson University, USA
