Fashion Designer Elizabeth Emanuel
When Diana Met…
Dec 22, 2021

Princess Diana influenced the fashion world long before influencers were a thing. She rocked athleisure before it was cool and paved the way for the term “revenge dress.” And then there was the wedding dress of all wedding dresses. Aminatou Sow talks with the woman behind THAT dress: Elizabeth Emanuel. It turns out these stylistic choices, fun as they may have been, were not made in vain. We also hear from author and Diana style expert Eloise Moran, as well as GQ fashion critic Rachel Tashjian about what the princess was trying to say through her clothes.
