Whether you have high hopes or not for the upcoming Madonna movie 'W.E,' Windsor Dressing by Tom Munro shows that the costumes are sure to impress.

This collection of elegant film stills chronicles scenes from the luxurious life of King Edward VIII and his beloved Wallis Simpson. The pair, who later assume the titles of Duke and Duchess of Windsor are played by the debonair James D'Arcy and the graceful Andrea Riseborough. The talented Arianne Phillips designed the stately and sophisticated ensembles that define posh in mid-20th century England.

It's perhaps not surprising that these polished pictures have found a place within Vanity Fair. Lensed in the beautifully landscaped West Wycombe House in Buckinghamshire, Windsor Dressing by Tom Munro is a ravishing snapshot into royal history.
