History can never be forgotten. Neither can it ever stop being fascinating. A walk down the memory lane may be an idyllic walk in the park. However, tracing the footsteps back to some of the most redefining moments of global history is a different tale. In its efforts to pioneer the content space, Netflix bet big when it released The Crown back in 2016. A thorough retelling of the events surrounding the life of the late Queen Elizabeth II, the series served as a reminder to people just how murky power can be.

In the meantime, as the show stands ready to drop its final six episodes, fans look over one of the most underrated aspects of the historical drama – fashion. Starting way back from 1947 to the current turn of the millennium canon, the show has put on a gallant reenacting of the royal fashion lexicon. While it may not find much mention amid the cut-throat riveting story pieces, Netflix just showcased its efforts and fans could hardly refrain from agreeing.

Royal protocols are often as sternly strict and straight as a line. The very ethos of those would even find mention by visiting guests such as the cast of Suits.  However, in the show, the outfits remained a near-immaculate replica of the ages. Princess Margaret’s pearl necklace and earrings adorning Helena Bonham Carter may just be the tip of the iceberg. Ranging from tiered frill and draped suits of the 80s to bootcut jeans, the resemblance is spot-on.

Queen Elizabeth II’s lavishly embroidered green gown and the simple opulence surrounding the air during her visit to Ghana are all major recreations that find stray mentions. Moreover, the Duchess of Windsor’s Champagne Gown to Princess Margaret’s Angelic Birthday Gown were scene stealers. Finally, the polka dot dress and wedding attires all lay credibility to the intricate details the makers put in while crafting the show from its bare bones.
