“The King’s Speech” featured the Duke and Duchess of Windsor who both were famous for their exquisite style and attention to detail. The Duke wore plaid suits long before Daniel Day Lewis was born, and he influenced generations to follow. The pampered Duchess had a magnificent wardrobe, and some of it is being auctioned off in London on March 17 by Dodi Fayed’s father, Mohamed Al Fayed. Mohamed bought the Duchess’s house and contents after her death and he’s holding the auction for charity. The lipstick red chiffon “night” dress and capelet, above is expected to go for around $1500. The Duke indulged his beloved Duchess and many pieces are from Dior, Cartier, Schiaparelli, or Louis Vuitton, with alligator shoes (size 4) and handbags – many items featuring monogrammed initials and embroidered crowns.
