VERDICT ON DRESS

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

PRINCESS Eu­ge­nie had a very par­tic­u­lar re­quest for her dress – she wanted to show off the scars from sco­l­io­sis surgery she had at age 12.

Bri­tish de­sign duo Pe­ter Pilotto and Christo­pher De Vos fash­ioned her stun­ning long-sleeved num­ber. It fea­tured a V-neck line with foldover de­tail­ing and a low back, a vo­lu­mi­nous skirt and dra­matic train.

Heavy with sym­bol­ism, the gown boasted a this­tle to rep­re­sent Bal­moral, a sham­rock for the Fer­gu­sons, the York rose in a nod to her fam­ily name, and ivy in hon­our of the cou­ple’s Ivy Cot­tage home.

Shun­ning a veil, she wore the Queen’s Gre­ville Emer­ald Kokoshnik tiara, made by jew­eller Boucheron in 1919, fea­tur­ing a 93.7 carat stone.
