Diana Spencer married Prince Charles in London's St. Paul's Cathedral on July 29, 1981. Her ivory gown has been called the world's most famous dress. It's known for its 25-foot train, made from 150 yards of silk. To this day, it's the longest train that's ever been worn at a royal wedding. The gown was made from six sumptuous fabrics, including silk taffeta and tulle crinoline, and cost about $14,000. David and Elizabeth Emanuel, who helped Diana get into her dress on her wedding day, designed the legendary gown.
TLC Takeaway: A variety of fabrics create a rich, unique look. Shop for gowns in fabrics that complement your style and the season, and add interest to plain gowns with textured fabric belts.
