Shaadi Special: ‘Talkative’ Wedding Wear

Circa 1994. 

Princess Diana wore an off-the-shoulder, not-fit-for-a-princess, form-fitting black number to a Vanity Fair party. This memorable outfit (so impressive we’re still talking about it years later) differed from her usual conservative yet fashionable style. The outfit came to be known as her ‘revenge dress’.

Later that day, Prince Charles’ tell-all documentary would premiere on national television. During this documentary, Prince Charles would admit, for the first time, to his adulterous affair. According to her former stylist, Anna Harvey, Diana was meant to wear a different outfit to the party. Instead, she made a last-minute switch because she wanted to look like a “million bucks”.

It’s fascinating how clothing affects how we view ourselves and others. A study published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology used the term “enclothed cognition” to describe the phenomena. They gave participants of the study white coats that they said belonged to doctors. The result? They found that the subjects’ paid more attention when they wore those coats. But when the participants were given clothes that belonged to painters, their ability to pay attention waned. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘power dressing’, doesn’t it?
