MORE VIEWS OF THE BRIDAL GOWN OF ZARA PHILLIPS

Brides and bridal gowns are always a favorite with many.  For those interested in seeing more views of the bridal gown worn by Zara Phillips on her wedding day on July 30, 2011, here are more photos of the bride.   The gown was designed by Stewart Parvin, who is couturier to Queen Elizabeth II.   Created from ivory duchess silk, the gown was of a drop-waist design with tightly-fitting bodice, that fell gracefully and was accentuated with soft pleating.   Zara’s veil was held in place by the Greek Meander Tiara, loaned by her mother, Princess Anne.  The diamond tiara is in the collection of the British royal family, having been given to the Queen by her mother-in-law, Princess Alice of Greece.
