Anne ‘dressed in the height of fashion’ - even her most critical biographer, Nicholas Sander, acknowledges that Anne was ‘well dressed, and every day made some change in the fashion of her garments’.

Her biggest fashion statement piece was her French hood. Unlike the gable hood, the French hood sat further back on the head and exposed some of the wearer’s hair. This was sometimes seen as a bit shocking, and Katherine of Aragon insistently stuck to her gable headresses.

In the 1530s, French hoods became quite popular in England, but after Anne’s downfall they equally fell out of fashion due to their association with her. They came back into popularity with the reign of Anne’s daughter, Elizabeth I.
