Sweet Disorder Contest: Attention All Designing Women and Men

Meet Miranda Molyneux, a talented seamstress equally skilled at embroidery. At Queen Elizabeth’s Court, Miranda must recreate the spectacular gown Anne Boleyn wore to the coronation ceremony that followed her marriage to Henry VIII.

What if Miranda was beginning her career as a seamstress in the 21st century instead of the 16th? Consider the killer (no pun intended) or iconic outfits women have worn during the last hundred years: the little black dress (paired with dark sunglasses and pearls) Audrey Hepburn wears as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s; the street chic grunge that early Madonna made cool; the polished suits and pillbox hats Jacqueline Kennedy made famous as First Lady—and what about Michelle Obama’s inaugural gown?

Whatever you choose, I ask you to write a brief reason WHY this woman matters and WHY her outfit matters. If you like, you can include an illustration of your own. Be as creative—as designing—as you like. The winner will receive a fashion-worthy gift, appropriately wrapped, of course. The runners up will receive signed paperback copies of The Red Queen’s Daughter. Send in your choices (email me at poppiesbloom@usa.net) between now and September 25. And of course, I will post your choices on Jacqueline’s Blog!
