Norman Hartnell, royal dressmaker to Queen Elizabeth, designed Princess Margaret's wedding dress, too, although the assignment was a bit different. Princess Margaret, who married celeb photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones, was something of a fashion plate despite her petite stature. Thus she was not a crown princess who had to stick to such strict protocol, meaning the creative process in creating her gown was opened up.
Margaret didn't want any fussy details like crystals, lace or embroidery on the dress. She believed because of her diminutive height that lavish details might over power her look. Instead she chose the most beautiful silk organza she could find worn over an underbodice. The bling went on her head in the form of the famous Poltimore tiara. Commissioned in 1870 for Lady Poltimore, the tiara was bought at auction especially for Margaret. Her wedding hair was coiffed sixties style adding a ton of height and paired up with the royal bridal tiara to add stature.
