I find it interesting how women pose differently for pictures, then and now. Read an article in country life http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Country_Life_(magazine) about their portrait pictures of young women and how the eyes changed towards the camera through the decennia

That is the most stunning wedding dress I have ever seen. It looks beautiful on Alice, the flowers add an extra special something. Thank you.

See also the article written by Regina:

Princess Amélie's wedding dress was made of faille silk with a long train, and her lace veil was a gift from friends from France. On her head she wore a garland of orange blossom; she didn’t wear any jewelry.
