Cleopatra: Portrait of a Killer
Costume seen on Camelia Ben Sekour as Cleopatra
Doctor Who: The Pandorica Opens
Costume seen on Alex Kingston as River Song

Over the years Hollywood has glamorized Egyptian clothing, jewelry and headdresses, often painting a beautiful, but fairly inaccurate picture. This Egyptian inspired headdress has appeared in at least two BBC productions. It was first seen in the 2009 documentary Cleopatra: Portrait of a Killer on Camelia Ben Sekour as Cleopatra. It was used again in 2010, where it was worn by Alex Kingston as River Song in the episode of Doctor Who entitled The Pandorica Opens, though the palm frond at the top of the headdress has been removed.
