The Virgin Mary - Fashion Icon

During this time of year, it's important to remember what we are celebrating. That being said - have you ever heard the Virgin Mary referred to as a fashion icon?! Currently there is an exhibit open in France, at Lyon's Fabric Museum, which features her elaborate clothing; much more extravagent than what is depicted in historical pictures/paintings. History states that brides would donate their gowns to be used to make dresses for the Virgin Mary. Fancy, fancy!
