Queen Maud of Norway was one of the best-dressed women of her age. Granddaughter of Queen Victoria, she was born a princess and became Queen of Norway in 1905. Her wardrobe includes a range of stunning creations dating from her wedding trousseau of 1896 to the latest Worth designs of the 1930s, showing the incredible changes in women's lifestyles and fashions from Edwardian bustles to informal sportswear. Style & Splendour showcases some of the most spectacular garments, now in the collection of the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, and sets them clearly in the context of Queen Maud's life and times.
