That day was amazing, and so in many ways was the life that came with it. She was not perfect, but loved all the same. She invigorated the Royal Family, and because she was a young lady with a love of fashion like anyone her age, she also became a fashion icon. Some of her choices may seem odd or dated all these years later, but I assure you , most were high fashion at the time, like the Majorette outfit she wore to a base visit. That was a look then.
10 years after her passing, and she is still missed, and we still like to look at her dresses and looks. The wedding dress itself seems dated, but again it wasn't then. No one could ooh and ahh fast enough. Time has weathered it some. I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the exhibition of her gown and dresses. What a wonderful thing it was to see this in person. The dress isn't as perfect as we all assumed , but that train is truly amazing. A favorite part, seeing not only the shoes as well, but a parasol made in case the weather wasn't going too well. I am adding my own pictures of the exhibit( I believe it's earrings on that small velvet piece.)
The tiara shot is in what's said to be one of her favorite dresses. A regal portrait.
