1. Wedding, 1947
For her wedding to Prince Philip, the 21-year-old Elizabeth wore an extravagant silk duchesse wedding gown designed by the royal couturier, Norman Hartnell. Inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s La Primavera painting, the dress was heavily embellished with 10,000 seed pearls and featured 15-foot train adorned with stars. To top the look off, the bride borrowed her grandmother Quern Mary’s Fringe Tiara, which shone with 47 bars of diamonds.
