Women in Power

I have two pictures of two beautiful, powerful women in the history to share with their wedding dress and short life stories.

Queen Victoria who introduced the concept of a "white wedding" to the world. White has long been accepted as the traditional color of the wedding dress, but wedding gowns were not always white. Most weddings at that time were more colorful. The wedding dress was a practical garment, expected to be worn again on many occasions. Queen Victoria's choice of a white wedding gown was unusual not only for a bride but also for a monarch. The marriage of Queen Victoria to her cousin Albert of Saxe- Coburg in 1840 Victoria’s dress was of rich white satin, trimmed with orange flower blossoms. The headdress was a wreath of orange flower blossoms, and over this a beautiful veil of Honiton lace, worn down. By the 1890’s almost every woman could realize her dream of being married in a “new” wedding dress.

Queen Soraya
with Shah Reza 1953 who was wife of King Amanullah Khan of Afghanistan; as Queen she was an outspoken feminist leader. Soraya Esfandiary Bakhtiary 'the princess with a sad eyes' was the first wife of former Iranian Shah Reza Pahlavi. She was beautiful and glamurous, still she couldn't give to Shah so wanted children and the marriage had to end. This one happens to be one of the most romantic and sad royal love stories of the past century. They say their love never died despite the fact that they was forced to devorce.

She bacame a prominent member of high society. She died, by some sources - from the broken heart, in Paris.
