Probably the greatest love story of the 20th century, made all the more remarkable by the fact that she was a plain woman but obviously very stylish. I was lucky to see the exhibition of her famous jewelry when it was auctioned off at Sothebys.

If I could have any pearls, it would be the set of these 2 South Sea necklaces and pearl drop that was all bought by Calvin Klein.

Have you guys read "Famous Last Words" by Timothy Findley. The book paints a really bad picture of the two, or at least just Wallis.

No, but I have read much of what a bitch she was. I dont think she really loved poor Edward, certainly not as much as he loved her.

I've always thought that supermodel Yasmin Le Bon resembles the Duchess of Windsor.

Timeless elegance, she had.

I love the way the designers reinvented her style for the 21st century.

Gah, this woman was deplorable!

I read somewhere she was trained in the east by postitutes. She must of been fantastic in bed to snag Edward VIII.
