Rome is a sexualized space through the course of the film. But the GLADIATOR captures Rome's love of violence, but not its passion for sex. Nevertheless Commodus' sister LUCILLA (Connie Nielsen) is in love with MAXIMUS. The costumes of the emperor's family were naturally the most elaborates. LUCILLA's gowns were almost all hand-embroidered silk, with gold thread woven into the fabric to give it a shimmer. >>> ROYAL ACCESSORIES
