I can say that when we bought this item, we never realized how magnificent and elegant it really was, nor did we have the provenance (history) that is given here, to really understand what this must have mean to Elizabeth. It just personifies her life and her style, even in her later years, and just creates its own subtle yet elegant ambience around it. We can only fantasize how she may have looked and felt wearing this as she casually mingled with her friends over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at a mid-afternoon Beverly Hills pool party. She was 110% Hollywood Royalty, lounging about her home in this royal gown.
