Traditional dress of Egypt: Legacy of ancient Kings and Queens

Ancient Egyptian. Egyptians developed their own unique style. Sheep wool wigs were worn to parties and women dressed in linen ankle-length dresses with straps that tied at the neck. Rich women wore heavily bejeweled collars called wesekh. Women also tinted their lips and cheeks with red ochre and lined their eyes and brows with black kohl using a fine reed.
