From BBC television and radio presenter Amber Butchart, The Fashion Chronicles is an exploration of 100 of the most fascinating style stories ever told.

From Eve's fig leaf to Hilary Clinton's pantsuit, the way we choose to clothe our bodies can carry layer upon layer of meaning. Across cultures and throughout history people have used clothing to signify power and status, to adorn and beautify, even to prop up or dismantle regimes.

Here, explore the best-dressed figures in history, from Cleopatra to Beyonce, Joan of Arc to RuPaul. Some have influenced the fashion of today, while some have used their clothing to change the world. But all have a sartorial story to tell.

Entries include:

Tutankhamun
Boudicca
Eleanor of Acquitane
Genghis Khan
King Philip II of Spain
King Louis XIV of France
Catherine the Great
Marie Antoinette
Karl Marx
Amelia Earhart
Josephine Baker
Frida Kahlo
Malcolm X
Marsha Hunt
Beyonce
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
...and many more
