Wallis Simpson: A Life in Style

Wallis Simpson may have made headlines as the married American who charmed King Edward VIII (a relationship that eventually caused him to abdicate), but she also gained a reputation for her sense of style. With an incredible couture collection and a penchant for wearing the most current fashions of the time - from flapper dresses and pearls in her youth to wasp-waisted ballgowns and mod shift dresses in her later life - Wallis's wardrobe continues to fascinate. Twenty-five years after her death, we remember some of her most stylish outfits.
