Thank you Catherine. Paola was such a stunning beauty!!! She reminds me of stars as Claudia Cardinale, Sophia Loren etc.

Great pictures! Thanks for posting.

I have never been a fan of her wedding dress, and I dislike it even more every time I see it. It just looks very ill-fitting and seems to swallow her whole.

A few days before the wedding, Paola put on her wedding dress to practice walking in it... (Jour de France & Paris Match - Thanks to Chris for sending them!)

That veil is truly magnificent. Did Princess Paola wear a tiara or flowers in her hair? I cannot tell.

I am not crazy about Paola's gown, but her tiara was lovely and she looked like an angel from Heaven.

Such a beautiful, beautiful young woman!

Cool

The picture of Paola with her hands over her face crying and Albert's concerned look is touching.

I was curious about this wedding and so looked. It seems to me that Paolo achieved the opposite of most women. I find the plainest of women become beautiful on their wedding days, but Paolo, perhaps the most beautiful of all Princesses in her day, somehow appeared plain. I cannot put my fiunger on it, but it's strange, she does - IMHO of course!

Well, I do think she looked rather pretty in this picture, as she probably did in all close-ups of her face (which are not that many in this thread). But the dress did not do much for her indeed, though the veil is absolutely stunning. And maybe that the pictures are mostly in black and white influences the impression she makes too.

Wow, as always you were able to show some amazing and 'new' pictures Steven, thanks! The last picture almost looks like a composition of a painting.
