Could you do a post with your favourite tiara hairstyles?

I’ll say anything by Alexandre de Paris.

His list of royal and celebrity clients is endless; Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Grace of Monaco, Duchess of Windsor, Countess (Isabelle) of Paris and her daughters especially Duchess Diane of Wurttemberg, Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, Liza Minelli, Greta Garbo, Sophia Loren,  Shirley MacLaine …

I recommend checking out Royal Hair, they have a lot of posts about tiara hairstyles and can do the subject more justice than me.


The full Danish Ruby Parure consists of:

  • Tiara
  • Earrings (which can be worn in the large version or a small version)
  • Brooch
  • Necklace
  • Bracelet
  • Ring
  • 3 Hair Pieces

Mary appears to have worn most, but not the full Parure for the Belgian State Visit Dinner on March 28, 2017. She certainly didn’t wear the brooch, but it’s harder to see if she wore the hair pieces or not.

Rayne Ryder

Unlike her military-by the book brother, Mason - who aimed to walk in his father’s footsteps to someday become an N7 - Rayne was a more free spirit or - more accurately - wasn’t one for following the rules and thought more with her heart, than her head. That’s not to say she wasn’t intelligent; the Ryder parents took great pride in how smart their children were, and they had their father’s military mind and training. But whereas Mason chose to use that knowledge and joined Systems Alliance, Rayne chose to travel wherever her heart wanted her to go, both on Earth and through the Milky Way - even though that combat training came in handy when she ran into hostile territory.

Because of that exploration desire, she chose to join the Andromeda Initiative with her father, brother and new fiance - Nate - who had proposed to her before they were to embark on their journey. Nate was to be part of the team on the Nexus, helping to set up the base and would be waiting for Rayne once the Hyperion and Pathfinder team arrived.
