When you watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, you see a fully panoply of military splendor. Any complete or magnificent array or impressive display is a panoply.
In other words, “the whole works.”
Someone with panache has dash, flamboyance, verve. Panache originally meant a plume of feathers stuck in a helmet and still today if you’ve got panache, it could be a “feather in your hat.”
