Anne displays fashionable dress of around 1530 with French hood, crescent neckline, and a gently draped necklace.
Herbert Norris described how a French hood was made in pp. 110-111 and 336-340 of the 1997 Dover re-issue of Tudor Costume and Fashion. The descriptive drawing follows the image of Elisabeth of York. The French hood began as a semicircular hood like the gable headdress, but evolved to where the cloth was cut into a T figure with the top of the T being about 28-inches while the upright of the T was about 36-inches. The front edge - the top of the T - was cut slightly concave and edged with jewels. The upright of the T was sewn upon itself to form a tube. The hood was worn over a close fitting cap edged with jewels that could be secured beneath the chin by a thin chinstrap. The cap in turn rested on goffered (pleated) cloth, barely visible in this portrait.
