Looking for outfit inspiration for this year’s holiday parties and events? Look no further than Six the Musical! Its bold, colorful costumes are the perfect inspiration for your seasonal outfits.

Six is a West End show about the six wives of Henry VIII and their infamous fates; devorced, beheaded, died, devorced, beheaded, survived.

However, instead of telling their stories in a traditional way, the musical transforms the queens into a girl group. Throughout the musical, they compare their experiences with Henry VIII to determine who gets to be the lead singer. The queens are able to take control of their stories, making for an optimistic show.

The costumes of Six the Musical are a combination of historical elements and modern pop star costumes. Read on for six holiday outfits inspired by the vibrant costumes of Six the Musical.

  1. Hey, just wanted to let you know that Anne of Cleves wasn’t divorced bc she didn’t have children but bc Henry VIII wasn’t attracted to her … it was an arranged marriage, he picked her bc he liked her portrait but then said she looked nothing like it when he met her … they annulled the marriage like a couple of months later (she was married to him for less than a year)

    • That actually wasn’t the reason he divorced her. It’s a common misconception. An alliance with the House of Cleves was a move intended to bring Henry political support and power in Europe (and he also wanted another son as a backup). By the time Anne arrived in England the original political reason for the union had diminished, and the lack of any immediate chemistry between Henry and Anne didn’t help. Anne and Henry were also separated by language, culture and personality. They had not met before their betrothal. Henry, who liked to choose his brides for himself (normally from the ranks of ladies in waiting at court) may have already set his sights on Catherine Howard as his next wife. Desperate attempts to halt the wedding failed. Despite Thomas Cromwell trying to find ways for Henry to send Anne back, the marriage went ahead. Anne’s innocence and Henry’s impatience, combined with his apparently intermittent impotence, meant the marriage was not consummated. Henry persisted for four nights before blaming Anne’s unattractive physical appearance for his failure to ‘do his duty’. The marriage was annulled after six months.
