What would it look like if you took 18th century reenactors and did a photoshoot in the style of Vogue or Glamour. That’s what they asked at Colonial Williamsburg, and this was the result.

Top: 

Actor-interpreter Dennis Watson wears a yellow-silk floral-embroidered coat and breeches with a coordinated white-silk satin waistcoat. The embroidery pattern is taken from a purple-silk court suit in Colonial Williamsburg’s collections.

Middle left: 

Actor-interpreter Scott Green wears a lace ruffled shirt and stock under pink satin smallclothes with a purple taffeta coat embellished in silver embroidery and spangles. The embroidery design is taken from a suit in Colonial Williamsburg’s collections.

Middle right:

Ken Treese, patternmaker at Colonial Williamsburg’s Costume Design Center, sports regalia constructed for an interpretation of Lord Cornwallis for the event “Under the Redcoat.” The British major general’s uniform is a regimental coat of red wool broadcloth faced with blue and embroidered in gold, a military cocked hat trimmed with gold lace and black-silk satin bow cockade, a pair of gold embroidered epaulettes with gold bullion fringe, buff linen smallclothes, black silk neck stock, and smallsword.

Bottom:

Journeyman silversmith Preston Jones in re-created livery from Virginia Governor Dunmore’s household—robin’s-egg-blue wool broadcloth waistcoat and coat trimmed in silver with brown wool broadcloth cuffs, collar, and breeches.
