Are you a fan of the bell sleeves trend?
I believe we can thank the resurgence of bell sleeves directly to Game of Thrones and this powerful, sinister and slightly crazy woman…
Cersei Lannister who is undisputably the Queen of bell sleeves.
I think you need to be a queen in order to wear such massive bell sleeves. These aren’t meant for doing household chores, going to the bathroom or walking the dog. Queens don’t bother with these mundane details of daily life. That is what servants are for. Thus why she is able to carry off those gigantic sleeves with such grace.
Back in the early 1500’s Kings and queens had someone to wipe their backside called the “Groom of the Stool”. This was considered a very powerful and prestigious job. Here is a little funny video about the position.
And you thought you had the worst job in the world!
