In the 1960s and 1970s, Queen Sirikit of Thailand was often voted as one of the most beautiful and best-dressed women in the world.

These exquisite costumes are now housed in the magnificent Queen Sirikit Textile Museum in Bangkok, in the grounds of the Grand Palace, and are thus on show for visitors to enjoy and marvel at.
