Heather Fontana and her entourage walked into the ballroom in San Francisco as music from a string quartet filled the massive room. They were part of a diverse crowd — people parading in tiaras, top hats and costumes with sequins and tulle. latimes.com/entertainment-…
Ballgoers complimented Fontana on her dress. “You have a good chance of being the Diamond,” her best friend said. “No, no, no, no. The guy with the cape is going to get it,” she said, referring to a man wrapped in a dramatic mantle. latimes.com/entertainment-…
Fontana and Arenas were at “The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience,” a ticketed party where guests are encouraged to don formal attire — mimicking clothing styles from the Regency era — and be on their best behavior to impress Queen Charlotte. latimes.com/entertainment-… This photo shows a woman wi...

Heather Fontana had started thinking about the real-life #Bridgerton ball months earlier, seeing TikToks from the traveling event. When she saw an ad for the Queen’s Ball locally, she immediately called her best friend Yoanna Arenas, a fellow fan. latimes.com/entertainment-…
“We’re like, ‘Oh, we have to go,’ ... and then we’re like, ‘We’ve also got to get our boyfriends to go,’ ” Fontana said. “We got the tickets as soon as they dropped. I set an alarm and put notifications on my email and everything.” latimes.com/entertainment-…
Netflix says that more than 80% of ticket buyers are female and that more than 90% of the 250 to 350 guests attending each ball dress up. latimes.com/entertainment-…

Heather Fontana glanced at the curlers as she carefully curled her eyelashes. Her boyfriend, Ramon Perez, looked on. Her dress and gloves were laid out on the bed; a hoop skirt was nearby.

She was preparing for a real-life #Bridgerton ball. latimes.com/entertainment-…
“This,” she said, “is what I wish prom was like.”

As someone trained in scholarly editing, I'm encouraging us to EXPLAIN the choice of an edition. After teaching the 18th century novel for over a decade (including w/digital 1st editions), most newcomers to early novels NEED the editorial support a modern edition provides. 🧵
A LOT of stuff is in the public domain -- including entire textbooks written to be Open Access, and some scholarly/teaching editions made freely available! By all means, use them if you've got them. Hell, part of my job (the @18thConnect part) is to help make more discoverable.
But for an 18th centuryist like me, using sites that make public domain editions of works available (bless them) means either the 1st edition of a novel (Hathi) or 19th century editions (Gutenberg). Neither will have explanatory notes or contextual info.

But that's just Prob 1.

Simone Ashley has always been a fan of romance, but before being cast as Kate Sharma in @Bridgerton, playing the lead in a period drama seemed improbable to her.

🧵thread kate's hairstyle evolution throughout the season 🧵 #Bridgerton
okay so, I think everybody noticed that kate's hairstyle went through some changes while the season progressed, so here it is a compilation with a little analysis of all of them
okay so episode 1
1st we have her riding braid: which it's basically kate being herself but with her duty still present with a less severe hairstyle with some strings framing her face but her hair is still contained in the braid ImageImageImage

🧵Mirrors in #Bridgerton season 2 🧵
this is an analysis on all the scenes with mirrors on the show. This is an interpretation, which it's full of subjectivity, meaning u can agree or not with this, this is just my pov on how i interpret these scenes
mirrors can have multiple meanings when they are present in different media, in bridgerton, i believe, it is used to reflect the truth, the soul and the self-reflection of the characters.
in this thread i have decided to focus on kate and anthony, and a little bit on edwina.
bc i focused on kate and anthony, there's also another meaning added with the mirrors, it's basically their twin flame energy.

okay but little thread of ep 3-4 #Bridgerton #bridgertonS2 about edwina and kate's dresses
so as many people noticed kate used a lot of bridgerton blue, and purples during the season and edwina used lots of pink, during these eps i found it interesting that even tho they kept that color palette here they also added more to the mix
in the beginning of ep 3 edwina is using a peach dress and later in the almost same shade in the pall mall but this one is more closer to white (in a way i kinda interpret it like the way edwina was ready for the proposal) ImageImage

The 2022 #MetGala was giving #GreatGatsby with all the feathered gowns. ✨ glmr.co/qyx7FE6
This year's #MetGala theme celebrated the Gilded Age of fashion, specifically the elaborate white tie formalwear the late 1800s was famous for. Sure, that might mean corsetry, diamonds, and bustles to some, but to others, it meant covering themselves in luxurious feathers. Image
Both #EizaGonzales and #HaileyBieber wore stunning white dresses with dramatic feathered flair to the #MetGala.

A senhorita Francesca Bridgerton era a pessoa que Kate precisava naquele momento. Era a única pessoa que Kate pensava ter a capacidade de acalmá-la. Anthony, como sempre, estava fazendo o oposto disso. Era Kate que teria que empurrar uma pessoa pra fora de si, mas era ele quem+
estava branco como uma nuvem, prestes a desmaiar. Ela queria bater nele.
Anthony estava tentando, claro. Fazia o possível pra tentar esconder o nervosismo, estava segurando sua mão enquanto ela o xingava. Anthony era o mais velho de oito irmãos. Podia não se lembrar de todos+
os partos, mas porcaria, devia lembrar de algum. Sabia como aquilo funcionava. Mais do que Kate, pelo menos. Deveria pelo menos saber que os gritos eram normais. Não estremecer cada vez que ela o xingasse em sua língua natal. Kate estava feliz de não ter lhe ensinado. Era bom+

This thinly veiled antivax paper is failure of peer review - ironically this paper engages on what unethically amounts to
1- building a strawmen
2- pulling a "slight of hand" switcheroo
3- pelting the strawmen to death with freshly picked cherries
To be clear on my position on this that MANDATORY vaccines are not justified - but that VOLUNTARY vaccinations respect autonomy and should be encouraged in line with expert guidance and recommendations.
What this article will do is try to confuse the former with latter. ImageImage
The paper purports to define as if they have the authority to make the best arguments for vaccination of healthy children against covid19.
Acting both as defence and prosecution the hubris of the authors, is that they were in anyway objective. Image

I’ve noticed that Newton the corgi is a big deal in the new season of #Bridgerton and I realised I’ve never seen a corgi mentioned in any sources from the 18th + early 19th centuries. It got me thinking… Newton the corgi with the Sharma sisters
Would people living during the Regency period even recognise a Welsh herding dog with short legs as a distinct type of dog? Would they have called it a ‘corgi’? Would a dog owner keep a corgi as a pet rather than as a working animal?

"Um dia, Lady Danbury, trarei um pouco do chá indiano pra cá e você vai entender por que desprezo tanto o chá inglês."
A viscondessa apoiou a xícara no pires com um barulho um pouco mais alto do que o aceitável. Não que alguém se importasse. Ela estava em casa e estava grávida.
Sempre tivera medo de que isso fosse tirar sua liberdade, mas gostou de perceber que só a permitia fazer ainda mais coisas. Anthony não parecia gostar da ideia de discutir com a esposa quando ela carregava seu filho no ventre.
"Bem, quando isso acontecer, Lady Bridgerton,
estarei mais do que disposta a testar sua teoria."
Um sorriso irônico - que Lady Danbury adorava - cruzou o rosto da viscondessa antes que elas fossem interrompidas por um barulho... Estranho. Kate virou o rosto em direção ao som e viu seu marido apoiado em uma enorme caixa de

Yesterday I read a very frustrating #Bridgerton interview that Said Some Things about corsets, and since today's pretty quiet (big snowstorm up here!) I thought I would do a thread on corsets of the late 18th-early 19th centuries.
Through most of the 18thc, the fashionable and respectable shape was one that could only be achieved with a foundation garment. As the latest Patterns of Fashion book shows us, there was a lot of craft that went into making a pair that truly fit an individual body. Raspberry silk damask stays...
By the late 1790s, the fashionable shape was *much* different. It was now important to look "natural", with soft curves all over the place. Stays that molded the bust were out. So ... what *did* they wear? Print of a John Hoppner por...
