Costumes by her majesty

October 29, 2008|Associated Press

"The Little Snow Girl" is being dressed by a queen.

Denmark's Queen Margrethe II on Tuesday unveiled costumes she designed for a Christmas ballet based on the classic Russian folk tale. The outfits are dominated by baby-blue traditional Russian dresses, cream shirts with flower motifs, golden head scarves and black Russian hats.

Margrethe, 68, a prolific graphic artist and scenographer, has previously designed costumes and sets for several plays, including adaptations of stories by fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen. She has also provided illustrations to a Danish edition of the three volumes of "The Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The ballet opens Dec. 13 in Copenhagen.
