Anastsia it turns out was given a Regiment, the 148th Kaspiansky Infantry in 1915 perhaps the reason no photo of her in the Regimental Uniform was taken will be because of the war.

Helen Mirren as Catherine the Great in the uniform of the Preobrazhensk Guards, not sure if she was their Chief, but she was their favorite, and they like wise her's. Her predecessor Czarina Elisabeth  also wore Guards uniforms and also apparently men's military wigs (can't find images of that).
