GO TAILORED AND MAYBE YOU CAN CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY . . ..
Just kidding. Grand uncle to Prince Charles, The Duke of Windsor does look eerily similar to his nephew. Coincidentally, both heirs to the throne changed the British monarchy around a little for the women they loved. Neither woman was young by the way and both felt more at ease donning some form of tailored look on their wedding day. Wallis Simpson's low key wedding called for a pale blue crepe suit created by Mainbocher, the American designer who set up shop in Paris in the 1930s. The skirt was to the floor and cut on the bias. Check out the impeccable detailing on the bodice.
Shown in her coat and dress ensembles by fav designer, Robinson Valentine. She recycled the shorter version by wearing it to The National Assembly of Wales in 2007. Leave it to Camilla to break the tradition of not only wearing a designer ensemble twice, but wedding ensemble at that!
