The grandiose outfit, which has become the most memorable detail of the wedding of the century, still delights and remains the dream of every girl. Princess Diana’s dress is considered a work of art, although there is a lot of controversy about the style.
Lady Dee’s dress — an outfit with history
The outfit was designed by a married couple of designers David and Elizabeth Emmanuel. At the time of the wedding, among the many fashionable eminent designers, Diana preferred these young and promising newcomers. Subsequently, members of the royal family also turned to the Emmanuelle couple about outfits.
Subsequently, the couple wrote a whole book about Lady Diana’s wedding dress, which included samples of silk and sketches of the dress for the princess. The work on the dress was painstaking, taking into account not only the traditions of the royal family, but also the tastes of Diana herself, the place of the ceremony.

The most memorable detail of the outfit is a long train, which reached eight meters in length. This is the longest train in the history of the royal family. He looked chic on the steps of the cathedral, and Diana herself had to train before the ceremony with the help of sheets.
Princess Diana’s wedding dress with a train was made of ivory silk, taffeta was woven to order. This is not just a high-quality canvas, ten thousand pearls and countless mother-of-pearl sequins are located on taffeta.
In total, six types of fabric were used to sew Princess Diana’s dress. The length of the wedding veil was also about eight meters, and it took as many as 137 meters of fabric to make it. Diana’s wedding dress was adorned with lace that belonged to Queen Elizabeth herself, and a small gold horseshoe with a diamond for good luck. Princess Diana’s wedding dress is still considered the embodiment of every girl’s dream — to become a princess by marrying a prince.
