One of the charming Schiaparelli creations selected by Mrs. Wallis Simpson in her recent shopping expedition. This is a black crepe dress printed with small turtles near the neckline. A novel black straw pole bonnet tops the ensemble.

One of the interesting Trousseau items selected by Mrs. Wallis Simpson, American beauty, for her marriage to the Duke of Windsor, is this charming evening dress by Schiaparelli. It is composed of dress and jacket in carbon blue silk jersey. The jacket lapels are bordered in white leather in a baroque scroll design.

: 6/5/1972-Windsor, England- The Duchess of Windsor, the American-born twice-divorced woman for whom a King of England gave up his throne, walks from his funeral service with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Cut off from the royal family in 1936 which made Edward VIII the exiled Duke of Windsor, the Duchess was making her first and probably last public appearance with the royal family in England since that time. She left by air for Paris immediately after the burial.
