I did think that Nancy Shevell's dress was reminiscent of Wallace Simpson's wedding gown, and I liked it!

I'm a little surprised by the comment of 'The story of what a man would do for love is mind blowing.' I think he was very brave to do what he did. His family didn't accept it, obviously, shutting him out of their lives until his funeral and then his wife's funeral. But, look at John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and to a lesser extent,Prince Charles and Camilla. Charlie's mother wasn't too thrilled, and I wonder if she thought of her uncle when she finally approved of their getting married. Theirs was a love marriage and people just had to learn to accept it, no matter how much grief it may have cost others close to them.

I actually think Stella improved on the original greatly. Better color, more attractive skirt and length, and a better fit.

The BBC miniseries "Edward and Mrs.Simpson" from 1978, has Cynthia Harris wearing almost an exact replica of this gown in the last episode. For those that have a Netflix account, they have all 7 episodes on instant view. I've already watched it straight through about a dozen times. Very interesting and well acted.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: The Duchess of Windsor and Her Dress

I know this was an appropriate dress for this type of wedding, but I don't love it. I do think the dress is elegant, (however I hate that collar) though I am not fond of it. But I would love to see it in it's original color. Also, I think the hat is horrible, and I don't like the bracelets for a bride. Nevertheless, it's nice dress, just not an all time favorite of mine.

If you like the ROSS article - go see the Met's page for the wedding suit: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Wedding ensemble

That back view of the collar shows what couture is all about. There's also a view with the jacket open. He and she donated a lot of clothing to the Met. His original Navy tails are there as well as many of his other suits, shoes, etc.

I too think that the gown was quite elegant, but there was nothing bridal about it.
And I don't really think this was an appropriate June dress at all!
