Fashion Rules Restyled invites you to explore the wardrobes of HM The Queen, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales. Discover their era-defining style choices and explore how they navigated the fashion ‘rules’ defined by their royal duties in this exhibition, open today at Kensington Palace.
Green velvet halterneck dress by Catherine Walker for Diana, Princess of Wales, 1992.
This smoking jacket-style dress was ordered for use at private family occasions. It was also famously worn in 1997 by Diana in the Vanity Fair shoot by Mario Testino.
Silk satin dress with beaded embroidery designed by Hardy Amies for HM The Queen, 1972.
This dress was worn by HM The Queen for her state visit to France in 1972. It was also worn in the official photograph taken to celebrate her Silver Jubilee in 1977. This image was widely reproduced on many commemorative items. It was also used by Andy Warhol for his screen prints “Reigning Queens” in 1985 and by the Sex Pistols on their “God Save the Queen” album cover.
Pink silk dress with black lace by Norman Hartnell for Princess Margaret, 1953.
This evening dress was worn by Princess Margaret for a performance of ‘Guys and Dolls’ at the London Coliseum in 1953. Princess Margaret coupled this daring off-the-shoulder dress with a fur bolero jacket.
I don’t know why but the Httyd Dragons are incredibly hard to make (at least with beads).
What are your favourite dragons ever? Not just from Httyd - I mean OF ALL TIME :D Mine are Toothless, Smaug and Shinerai <3 And maybe the Ukrainian Ironbelly from Harry Potter. The Gringotts dragon. This one was lovely too.
It’s not even a week into 2016 and I’ve already received two wonderful commission orders!
Lilac from Freedom Planet was someone I’ve wanted to make for a while, but I couldn’t find a reason to. I’m actually really proud of the way she came out. The Artkal beads really made a difference, I don’t think I could have made her without them!
And we have our first Undertale commission! Keeping it basic, we’ve got Papyrus, Sans, and Mettaton. Can I just say I LOVE Mettaton EX’s overworld sprite so much? It’s the hair…or maybe his colors…or his comically long arms.
