Wedding Dress

I agree re: wedding dress. It WAS voluminous but it was popular in terms of the styles of the time and presented nicely in the huge cathedral. Whatever the truth was--and here I refer to Mr. Devorik, a designer and friend later in her life--about her "wishing the moths had reduced the volume of the dress. Yuk!" Diana chose the Emmanuels from a host of designers and the designs they presented. She also relied heavily on British Vogue editors for advice so the dress was entirely of her choosing. Quite different from the sleeker ones now--Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's slip dress for example--it fit the times. And I still believe a very sleek little number would have not gone over well.

I thought it was hideous and when I saw her in 2 versions of it, it didn't change my mind. It's rather like that Dior "slip" dress she wore in NY in 1997 or so. It was unbecoming and she ignored her style, slicked back her hair and the whole effect was unbecoming.

The Puffball

I guess it depends. If you are tall w/great legs, you could pull if off. Also, I cannot wear poufy, flouncy things.....so its a matter of what looks good on you....but appreciate your comments, Susan. I have never seen one worn in person. Thank you!

Royals dressed badly

I saw a tread on the Princess Diana forum, called "Gosh, I wish I had skipped wearing THAT one!"
I found it very funny.
Let's post pictures of other royals with not so good looking dresses.

I'll start with Princess Märtha Louise.

I think this dress looks absolutly horrible. It looks so strange, like it doesn't fit. I adore Märtha's clothes, but this one.... NO!

Love, Lone

Marie Chantal also looked horrible at Willem Alexander and Maxima's wedding. It may be haute couture, but it's awful.

Oh my goodness...Another unrecognizable picture of ML, at least for me. That dress is awful. The picture of her with MM...is that a bow tied around her neck? I do like ML and the way she dress, but those pictures of her aren't good ones. LOL those things on MC and QB's heads. My goodness, I have a had a good laugh for today. Thanks.

Well, you can't really see the actual dress, much, but I do wonder what posessed her to wear a red wrap with that particular shade of green.

Ooh, that hat looks like Big Bird if he was blue. It's a nice colour, but just too 'sticky-outy'.

to me it is rather what were her relatives thinking, they all had eyes and could see she was not wearing a bra and should have warned her that it did not look appropriate for a very formal event (or any event for that matter)

Queen Rania at Prince Felipe's wedding gala.
I personally cant think of any royal woman who consistently dresses as impeccably as Rania does. Her dress at the gala was stunning but obviously the bra or whatever she was wearing underneath wasn't secured properly. I certainly hope she didn't spend the entire night looking like that.
