Tell me, have ye seene her angelick face
Like Phœbe fayre?
Her heavenly haveour, her princely grace,
Can you well compare?
The Redde rose medled with the White yfere,
In either cheeke depeincten lively chere:
Her modest eye,
Her Majestie,
Where have you seene the like but there?

From--In praise of Eliza, Queen of the Shepherds
Edmund Spenser (1552–1599)

These are beautiful. How cute is the veil with the big bow? Not to mention the headwear of the last one. All so pretty
