That's not the earliest picture of Sarah and Andrew, is it?

Yes, I believe that is the earliest known photo of Andrew and Sarah and I remember way back in 1986 seeing is during the coverage in the run up to the wedding.

Isn't there a picture of Sarah as a kid, with some of the RF including Andrew?

Diana's dress was a sign of the times, I assume in Transylvania mixed up with TV's Dynasty shoulder pads X 100. And yet, the dress says it all, it drowns her in it like she was encased in a fortress of fabric.

Sara's dress was more carefree, still with the shoulder pads that represented the era well, but more movable. It could have helped too had someone used an iron on that skirt.

And since you called a competition, both loose to the most famous wedding dress of the 20th century: Princess Grace of Monaco and to this day still undefeated

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weddin...of_Grace_Kelly

Excerpt:
The wedding dress of the American actress Grace Kelly, worn during her wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco on 19 April 1956, is cited as one of the most elegant and best-remembered bridal gowns of all time, and one of the most famous since the mid 20th century.
One author describes the dress as a symbol of "the marital fervor" and a major influence on women who strove to "emulate Kelly's peau de soie and lace masterpiece". It was designed by Helen Rose of MGM.

I bet if Diana had remained at the exact same weight and measurements as she was when they were first taken by the designer, the gown would have been much more successful. That type of design cried out for an early 18th century beautifully voluptuous figure like the ones in the Gainsborough paintings.

And at the time her engagement was announced, that is what Lady Diana had.

I loved Sarah's dress, it's my favorite 1980's Royal wedding gown.

But Diana's sheer youthful gorgeousness triumphed over her messy bridal dress, imo. She was radiant.
