The King’s Speech: Signifier of Royal Fashion Resurgence?

February 16, 2011 | Post by

Eve Best as the super stylish Duchess of Windsor in The King's Speech

The buzz around The King’s Speech (you know, the movie you hadn’t heard of before it got a whooping 12 nominations – the most of any film this year) is building as its initially limited release (4 theaters?!?!) is rolled out nation wide.

Here’s your Kings Speech fun fact for the day: Apparently the Queen mum herself gave the film her blessing after a private showing. She said she found it “moving”. Will Oscar Voters agree? Will this be the little movie that could?

I’m no oscar expert, but here’s what I will predict: Between this film and Prince William’s wedding to the stylish Kate Middleton coming up later this year, I think we just might be seeing the start of resurgence of interest in royal fashion, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the golden age of Princess Diana.

Case in point: Take Bessie Wallis aka The Duchess of Windsor, seen here as played by Eve Best – who you might know as Doctor O’Hara on Nurse Jackie. As it so happens the real-life Duchess of Windsor’s jewelry collection was auctioned off not long ago at Sotheby’s. The hottest item was her panther bracelet which sold for a staggering $7 million.

As it so happens, Ice.com has our own gorgeous panther bracelet that was so popular when we first put it up it quickly sold out. Luckily, we just got more in stock.

Go ahead. Get a little taste of the royal life.

Note: Since this post was published the panther bracelet has sold out again!! This product is hot! We’re getting more in mid-March. Check back to get yours before it sells out again ;)
