About The Gown:
From The Washington Post: When Princess Elizabeth’s engagement to Philip Mountbatten was announced in 1947, her wedding dress was the subject of speculation and intrigue in war-exhausted England. English designer Norman Hartnell (an inspiration for “Phantom Thread”) was given the commission, and the gown — with a 15-foot train of tulle embroidered with “York roses . . . star flowers, ears of wheat, jasmine blossoms, and smilax leaves,” plus crystal beads and pearls — was a Botticelli-inspired work of art. It’s the work behind that art that forms the through-line of Jennifer Robson’s compelling and informative novel “The Gown.”
