Reign 1x02 - Dangerous dresses

Okay, so the dresses in this show are apparently not only horribly out of place, but also possibly lethal. Even if she was just faking it. (SPOILERS!)
Poisoned clothing is a proud and ancient tradition in mythology and folklore for disposing of thine enemy, usually practiced by jealous women. That alone speaks volumes.
Most famous examples include:

This is how Hercules died
This is how Medea got rid of Jason's new wife (and her father)
Oh look it even has its own Wikipedia page
