    Brit Elizabeth Emanuel, who designed Lady Diana Spencer's wedding gown, sketched a look for the princess-to-be. "It's entirely different from the Diana dress I designed, which was very much of the Eighties," Emanuel told "Women's Wear Daily," "But it's still fitting for a royal occasion. It's a much more modern dress, but romantic and out of the ordinary."
