The Revenge Dress
Breaking away from the traditional British designers, Diana wore a dress by Christina Stambolian, a renowned Greek designer. Reportedly, for this event, Diana had planned to wear a Valentino dress but, at the last minute, chose the Christina Stambolian design instead. This is an example that sometimes, last-minute decisions end up being for the best!
As this event came shortly after her quickly dissolving marriage, the Stambolian dress was later known as “the revenge dress.” And it was indeed one of Diana’s most unforgettably glamorous looks.
Perfect Duchess Kate
In 2013, Kate and Will attended the Tusk Trust Awards at the Royal Society in London. It was a special occasion as it was the royal pair’s first night out together after the birth of their firstborn son, George. Kate’s sequined pale gold gown was designed by one of her favorites, Jenny Packham.
The dress was extra special, though, because it was custom-made for Kate with an empire waist embellished by a brooch and a keyhole at the back. Kate completed the look with a pair of glittery Jimmy Choo Vamp court shoes and a matching diamond bracelet and earrings.
Princess Eugenie of York
Princess Eugenie is new to the royal spotlight. She’s been part of Britain’s royal family ever since she was born into it as the third granddaughter of the late Queen Elizabeth. She was Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York. Her mother is Fergie, and her grandad’s the late Prince Philip.
She is seen here in a magnificent green dress with an interesting neckline and in a perfect length. Having a not-so-flattering reputation regarding her choice of what to wear, she has toned down in recent years and, as we see here, is doing quite a good job.
Although she has been compared to Diana before, Duchess Kate has been very successful in distinguishing her style from that of other members of the royal family. Kate’s looks are elegant and graceful but never dull.
When traveling abroad to different regions, royals have to be sure to choose the right attire for the events and culture they will be immersed in. In 2018, Kate and Prince William were on a royal tour of Norway and Sweden and had a handful of events to attend. For the formal dinner the royals were invited to, Kate chose a lovely, powder pink Alexander McQueen gown.
The Queen Mother
For all of their etiquette and restrictions, royal women do enjoy fashion and dressing to impress their guests. Queen Elizabeth II was known for her fashion sense, and it seems it runs strong in the family.
