Women's Exquisite Cleopatra Costume
Ahead of their Time
We've got to hand it to those Egyptians. Not only were they excellent architects and scientists (well, for their time at least), they were way ahead of everyone else when it came to women's rights. We're serious. Not only could women have jobs, they could buy and sell property, run their own businesses, even rule the country. That's right. Egyptian women didn't need no men.
And the most famous of all these strong independent women of Egypt? Queen Cleopatra of course. Yeah, okay, so she wasn't exactly Egyptian by birth, but she did manage to rule the country, along with dabbling in politics and knowing various languages. Did we mention that she also led her navy into battle? That's right. Add to that her killer Egyptian sense of style, and she was a queen for the books indeed.
We're so impressed with the Egyptians and their female rulers, that you can bet we have many outfits inspired by them. This Exquisite Cleopatra Costume is just one. This outfit has a sleeveless velvet pullover gown with a deep plunging V-neckline that's edged with gold sequins. There are thigh-high slits up both sides of the dress for easy movement as well. A metallic faux leather collar is trimmed with a geometric ribbon and closes with velcro. The belt has a geometric brocade ribbon as well, along with a metallic gold faux leather front drape. How regal is that?
One Queen to Rule Them All
So there you have it. You could channel the most illustrious of Egyptian queens, ruler of the Nile, Pharoah to all Egypt (and look pretty classy while you're at it). Just remember that you've got quite the name to live up to. Also, keep an eye out for Asps. We hear they're bad news.
