Sophie, Countess of Wessex
After the frilly wedding clothes of Woman Diana Spencer and Sarah Ferguson within the 1980s, Sophie Rhys-Jones’ wedding gown was distinctly easier again in 1999.
Style entrepreneur Aditi Oberoi Malhotra (fancycorrectitude on Instagram) advised Specific.co.uk: “The coat-style robe had a singular elevated attraction that units it aside from different royal wedding robes, a break from puffed sleeves and full skirts. Cherished the bell sleeves, the embossed V neckline, and crystal pearls.
“The motion of the veil was breathtakingly stunning, the practice regarded female, and the selection of cloth added softness to the royal ensemble. Accessorised with a stupendous tiara and pearl necklace.
“It was a surprising, age-appropriate (on the time of her wedding), subtle, elegant search for a traditional royal bride. Impeccably designed by Samantha Shaw.”
