This isn't the one I was thinking of, but it's a pretty good example.

This pic hasn't been posted in this thread or the one on Queen Beatrix's wardrobe, so I think it's okay to post it.

BTW, BeatrixFan the 2nd pic in your post (#23), I found the event to which Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik wore their costumes. It was to the 25th anniversary party for the King and Queen of Sweden on June 18, 2001 at Gripsholm Castle in Sweden.

I really love the gown Princess Mary wore in her official portrait on her website. the gown&the train looks beautiful and regal. I notice in post #28, Princess Alexandra was also wearing a Red gown/blue sash. is red a traditional colour for Danish Royals?

Cape - coat etc.

Canonical Trains

This is available from art.com, Mathilde Bonaparte by Dubufe:


Empres Eugenie (source of this print unknown, original at Museo Napoleonico):


A good picture of Empress Elisabeth (Sisi) is at:

And a trio of Royal ladies (Princess Alexandra, Queen Louise, and Alexandra's daughter Victoria) from the wonderful Lafayette Studio collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum:

These are trains!

And they're gorgeous!

From http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/ctCostume.html what I found:

"Gowns of cloth of gold and cloth of silver were reserved for the Empress and the daughters of the Emperor. When the Empress wore cloth of gold (generally only at their coronation), the Grand Duchesses could wear cloth of silver. As most Empresses preferred cloth of silver (it was more flattering, and far less heavy), the Grand Duchesses rarely had the opportunity to wear it except at their weddings, when it was required. For other occasions, the Grand Duchesses wore velvet gowns in a color of their choosing, which was reserved for their exclusive use.
Attendants to the Empress (or after 1894, Empresses) and the Imperial family wore court gowns in two colors, garnet red and emerald green. The hierarchy was sophisticated and rigid. The highest title was that of Chief Stewardess of the Household, who, as a married woman, wore a green velvet court gown embroidered in gold, with a train, the length of which was determined by her rank (chin'). After the Chief Stewardess came Ladies-in-waiting (second and third class in the ranks of the Imperial Household, determined by length of service.). The Ladies-in-waiting were married women of noble birth selected by the Empress. They also wore the green velvet, but with shorter trains. The fourth class of female attendants was Full Maids of Honor of the Bedchamber. These unmarried women of the highest nobility wore the same types of gowns, but in crimson velvet. They also had small capes, which covered the bare shoulders revealed by married ladies. These women served the empresses exclusively. In the mid-nineteenth century, there also existed the positions of Chief Ladies (the fifth class) who were the equivalent of Ladies-in-Waiting, but served the Grand Duchesses and Princesses of the Blood, and the sixth class position of Chief-Ladies-In-Waiting and Maids of Honor of the Bedchamber. By 1881, the fifth through seventh classes were abolished as redundant."

Why Elizabeth II had different trains in 1953 http://www.fashion-era.com/images/So...coro500jun.jpg and now Glittering Royal Events Message Board: Re: State Opening of Parliament ? Because first was a coronation and present is just for state opening ?

Magnik,
You are right, that is why there is a difference.
The actual Coronation Mantle/Cloak is only used for the Coronation.
It's Beautiful though..... The Detail on it is Magnificent....

This dress is absolutely beautiful! It would be lovely to be able to see this in person. Does anyone know how long the train is?

I agree sql, this Gown is really Gorgeous and also SO regal. From what I have read the train is 4 meters long. The ladies had their own dedicated train bearers at the Russian court.... I believe that some of these Gowns are on display..... But you will have to travel to Moscow!
Ciao,
A
