Wallis Simpson: A Life in Style

We look back at her greatest fashion moments

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.
