Rudi Gernreich topless swimsuit 1960s We were all appropriately shocked! Fashion designer Rudi Gernreich introduced the monokini. Although not a commercial success, the suit opened eyes to new design possibilities. In the 1980s the thong or "tanga" came out of Brazil, said to have been inspired by traditional garments of native tribes in the Amazon. However, the one-piece suit continued to be popular for its more modest approach.

] A woman with a high forehead was considered beautiful during the Elizabethan era, and upper-class Elizabethan women plucked or shaved their frontal hairs to achieve this look. These women also covered their skin with ceruse (lead-based) makeup, which caused peripheral neuropathy, gout, anemia, chronic renal failure, and disfiguring scarring, requiring the application of more ceruse makeup. Chronic users, such as Queen Elizabeth I, acquired a misshapen appearance.

Famous Redheads From History
This is a picture of Queen Elizabeth I. William Shakespeare used her as an inspiration throughout his writings in the English Renaissance. Although she was the queen of England, she did not have the same power as men did. Women were considered inferior as stated in my paper. I find this ironic since she was such an inspiration to a man in the Renaissance.

Surviving chemise worn by Marie Antoinette while in prison. Eye For Design: Marie Antoinette, Life At The Court Of Versailles

This is Marie-Antionette's only surviving garment. "The queen would order about 170 dresses per year. The First lady in waiting would bring every morning a book with samples of fabrics for each of the garments in the queen’s wardrobe. Marie-Antoinette would then make her selection by pinning down three to four samples for the dresses she would wear later on the day. A more frugal, and by association of ideas gruesome sight, is that of an undergarment white tunic worn by Marie-Antoinette when she was in prison. It draws a sharp contrast with the splendors of court life and reminds visitors of her tragic end."
