Fashion Rules Restyled – New Exhibition of Royal Gowns at Kensington Palace
A new exhibition featuring the clothing of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales opens on February 11 at Kensington Palace.
‘Fashion Rules Restyled’ showcases a number of Princess Diana’s Catherine Walker gowns, including a velvet and tartan evening gown, a one-shouldered beaded floral gown and a halter-neck emerald green velvet gown.
From the Queen’s wardrobe comes a Hardy Amies ivory beaded bodice dress, while several Norman Hartnell full-skirted evening gowns come from Princess Margaret. Also from the Queen’s late sister are a few pairs of her stylish sunglasses.
The exhibition showcases how the three royal ladies “navigated the fashion ‘rules’ defined by their royal duties in their own unique style”.Filed under The United Kingdom
