All the gowns and those sorts of things, I don’t think she particularly enjoys getting dressed up. But they’re like a uniform to her. All the garments and all the jewels and everything, she’s very particular about what message she portrays with what things she’s wearing — where that one’s from, who gave them that, how long this one’s been in the family, and all that. So nothing’s an accident.

The costume designer for The Crown is Michele Clapton.
Congratulations to Ms. Foy, who plays the young Queen Elizabeth in the series and just won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Drama. The series also won Best Drama TV Series. Looks like this is going into my Netflix queue.
