I tried looking it up but almost nothing came up.
Its not just the wedding dress fashions that were very different in the 1980s, so too were food fashions.

Thank you, everyone who keeps posting such interesting information every day. I am getting very excited about the wedding and hope we will be able to see it live here! I think that will be very late evening here, not sure, but cannot wait to see all the details come together.

Am very interested to know (finally) what is served at the reception and what those mini-pizzas are all about.

Diana's Spare Wedding Dress

I prefer it to the one she wore.

Thanks for posting this! I actually prefer it to the one she wore too. I like the elaborate skirt more and the simpler sleeves and believe it would have stood the test of time fashion-wise more that the other.

I agree, I like the fact the sleeves look less like cupcakes. Diana's dress was beautiful for the time, but it definitely does show it's age.

Why would they make a spare that was different? Makes no sense to me. That "spare" could have been made any time in the last 30 years. It could have been made last week.

I think the article mentioned that in case the design of the "real" dress was leaked out, they had something slightly different as a standby. But I do agree it's abit odd that after 30 years this spare dress has surfaced. I always thought that the "spare" was an exact replica that ended up at Madam Tussauds - so now we seem to have the original dress (at Althorp I assume) and two spares knocking about!

It is possible the 'spare' is actually a fake of sorts. Perhaps the designer made two designs, but only the cream puff we know and its duplicate at Madam Trussaud's was made. The design may have been laying around and someone decided to make it. It doesn't look like it is made out of the most expensive fabric. Someone trying to get some of the 15 minutes of fame, by using the Diana memory before the wedding.

I agree about the seeking 15 minutes of fame. If there was a spare dress, we would've known about long before now. And "spare dress" implies a duplicate, whereas the dress shown looks more like a knock-off. The article implies that the "spare dress" was of a different design, but it doesn't look like it. Maybe the design was in the running but not chosen.

May I ask for clarification are the Emmanuels the one that leaked the picture? Because if so then well now they would know if there is a spare dress or not, they were the designers! And the article says Diana didn't know about the spare apparently.

i agree about the spare dress. my thoughts are this is close enough to the real thing that if the design was leaked then it wouldne be that big of a chance to have the wow factor.

It has long been rumoured that there was a spare dress and now you finally see it. I don't think that was the case in the past.

In reference to seeking their fifteen minutes of fame, as we get closer to William and Kate's wedding, since we know so little information...all the press can do at the moment is talk about previous weddings (i.e. the carraiges, the dresses, the cake and the like). I recently read someting that quoted Samantha Shaw, who designed Sohie's dress. Since the press doesn't know who is designing Kate's dress they are talking to people (i.e. designers of previous dresses to get a feel for the look they were going for, the security, etc.).

Just a thought.

We all agree, I think, that Dianas dress was perfect for 1981 but didnt stand the test of time. Which is quite bad for a designer who still wants to play top-league in the 2010s. I wouldnt wonder if Ms. Emanuel used the actual Royal wedding to put the blame for the "meringue"-dresss over-the-top-ness on Dianas choice on presenting this dress which "wasnt discussed with Diana", so obviously showed the pure influence of the designers.

Was this "spare dress" with the different design mentioned in the Diana-dress-book by the Emanuels? And if not, why?

The Emanuels made a replica specially for Madame Tussaud's but with a train only about half the length of the real one due space restrictions at MT's and it would take too long to embroider a replica of the real train.
