So Crown: Tiaras May Be the Next Fashion Trend
While you might expect that real-life princesses would wear tiaras whenever possible (we sure would!), the reality is that modern royals usually opt for more subtlety. Kate Middleton has only been seen in a tiara four times, and two of those instances have occurred in the past two months. Most recently, Kate rocked the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara, which was given to Princess Diana as a wedding gift from Queen Elizabeth, at the Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace on December 8, reports Vanity Fair.
The Swedish royals also stepped out in their crown jewels this December: Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Madeleine and Princess Sofia each wore a tiara to the Nobel Prize Banquet in Stockholm, according to PEOPLE. Shown below is Princess Sofia in her flawless emerald-studded wedding tiara.
But on top of this resurgence of the tiara on royal heads, high-end French fashion house Saint Laurent also included tiaras in its Spring/Summer 2016 campaign, according to Fashionista. Saint Laurent refers to the headgear as a "grunge tiara" on its Twitter page, creating both high and low pairings with denim, leopard print, sequins and florals from the collection.
