Although Anne Boleyn, second wife of serial bridegroom Henry VIII, may have exerted a tenuous grip on the throne as Queen of England before meeting an untimely death (excuted in 1636 for high treason), her legacy endures. From describing a flowering plant (Queen Anne’s Lace) to sending 1969’s Richard Burton into fits (Anne of the Thousand Days), Anne Boleyn looms large. This month’s issue of Vogue Russia delights in the stylings redolent of Anne Boleyn in a story featuring Holly Rose photographed by Ben Hasset. Styled by Natasha Royt, the story leans heavily on Anne Boleyn’s legacy, the dresses, the lace, the rhinestones, the opulence. Thankfully for our heroine Holly Rose, however there is not so much an execution as there is a coronation.
