Crown to Couture is a deep-dive into glamour features gorgeous installations at Kensington Palace’s State Apartments, which once hosted near-daily lavish parties for the crème de la crème of high society.
Starting from April 5, visitors are invited to see the similarities between the height of fashion during the historic period compared with modern day Hollywood haute couture.
It features more than 200 items – including ball gowns, court suits, handbags and jewellery – and promises to draw ‘fascinating parallels’ between the royals of the eighteenth century and today’s stars.

The exhibition – called Crown to Couture – will pay homage to iconic glitzy event looks from the modern vintage, presented against the backdrop of Georgian-period society.
This includes Billy Porter’s ‘Sun God’ outfit, styled by Sam Ratelle and designed by The Blonds for the 2019 Met Gala, and Kendall Jenner’s shimmering Audrey Hepburn-inspired Givenchy dress worn to the 2021 event.
It will also follow the meticulous process of preparation when dressing for the hot-ticket event of the season – both today in years past – looking at everything from underwear to make-up.
The role and importance of stylists is also explored, particularly looking at ‘the original stylist’ Frances Abington who was famed for his work during mid-18th century London.
Abington’s modern-day counterpart – Sam Ratelle, renowned as the ‘unsung hero’ of today’s red carpets – will also be celebrated.
Other stylish looks which will be paid homage to include Billie Eilish’s flowy vintage-style pink Oscar de la Renta gown from the 2021 Met Gala – which is the first visage visitors are greeted with on entry.
Lizzo’s Thom Browne dress, Iris Law’s Moschino cut out gown and Jessie Buckley’s Schiaparelli suit – all from the following year’s Met Gala – will also be included in the celebration of fashion.
‘We’re so excited to be transforming Kensington Palace’s State Apartments for our largest ever exhibition, Crown to Couture,’ Polly Putnam, curator at Historic Royal Palaces, said.
‘To see these historic spaces filled with stunning examples of both historic and contemporary dress truly brings them to life, and we can’t wait for our visitors to experience these rooms in a completely new way.
‘From your choice of designer and materials to the subtle messages your dress communicates, this exhibition demonstrates the parallels between the world of the Georgian court and the modern day red carpet as they have never been seen before.’
Claudia Acott Williams, curator at Historic Royal Palaces remarked that the exhibition will make us feel closer to what may feel like an ancient past.
She said: ‘The customs of the Georgian court might seem distant and anachronistic, but we hope that Crown to Couture will provide a new and familiar lens through which to understand the palace’s spaces and the court’s traditions.
