I haven’t even finished the episode yet but I don’t care
She was the only thing that bothered me in the episode tbh
-the dress was wrong
-the hair was wrong
-she’s too thin
-she’s too young
I guess they wanted to cast an attractive mature actress so she could do the sexual tension thing with Capaldi, but I wouldn’t have minded if she was fat and *actually* old like the historical Marie de Médicis at the time this is supposed to be set and still flirted with the Cardinal and still be a devious and scheming badass bitch; being fat and old doesn’t mean you can’t still kick ass — ask my grandmothers
I’m sorry but this is just a mess and I wasn’t convinced
for the most part the costumes on the musketeers seem authentic. I’m not an expert in historical fashion, but they look like things I’ve seen in art museums (although some of the women’s bodices seem rather low-cut).

Emma Thompson probably has an easy answer to all your existential questions.
this is one of the sweetest gestures i’ve ever seen. i mean, most of the models would’ve just walked away and leave that poor girl there, on the ground.

My first thought as I saw this was: Gallifrey.
I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I want woman to look stronger…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is … I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.
