When designing the many costumes for the show, which airs new episodes on Sundays, Cariss looked to modern style elements and references, fusing them with historically accurate pieces prevalent during the Tudor period.
“We delved into paintings of the era,” Cariss said. “The Hans Holbein [Elizabeth I portrait] obviously, but also looking abroad to Giovanni Battista Moroni, who was Italian and did a fabulous painting called ‘The Tailor,’ where he’s got short, cropped hair. There’s always a beauty in some of those old paintings. Sometimes you see faces and they can be modern at the same time.”
