Queen Elizabeth I, in a richly embroidered and bejewelled red dress, holding an orb and sceptre by a follower of Federico Zuccaro (auctioned by Christie's)

Queen Elizabeth's ruff is split so it does wrap completely around her head. She wears hanging and false sleeves and a French farthingale. Her stomacher appears to be surrounded by a jeweled frame.
