Last year was the year of Royal weddings with the Queen’s grandchildren, Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie, tying the knots in May and October.
It was also the year of the having two wedding dresses, with Meghan Markle stepping out in a gorgeous Stella McCartney gown and Princess Eugenie in an outstanding Zac Posen blush gown for their evening receptions.
Both of Princess Eugenie’s wedding dresses have went on display in Windsor Castle, along with her accessories, including the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara borrowed from the Queen. The exhibition’s official website, Windsor Castle, explains the tiara ‘is made of brilliant and rose cut diamonds pavé set in platinum with six emeralds on either side.’
The exhibition is running 1st March – 22 April 2019 and those lucky enough to attend will see not only the Princess’s wedding dresses but also the attire of bridesmaid Theodora, groom Jack Brooksbank’s and Maid of Honour Princess Beatrice. Visitors will also enjoy an audio from Princess Eugenie herself, giving unique details about her wedding.
One notable piece of information is about her second wedding dress, the beautiful Zac Posen blush gown. It actually was inspired by Grace Kelly’s movie To Catch A Thief where the royal actress wears fashion forward dresses. In the audio, Princess Eugenie is heard to describe Zac as ‘such a cool, fun, brilliant designer and friend.’
She adds ‘I wanted something reminiscent of Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief so I showed that for reference and Zac came up with this silk he had found in Manchester. Every single draping effect, every single detail, every button, it’s all painstakingly done by him and his team.’
