Wallis Simpson Returns to England: A Look Back

Posted: Updated:


"A Look Back" is a daily column that highlights a moment from fashion's fabulous past. Today's pick is of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, during a brief visit to Sussex. Simpson, aka "that woman," caused one of England's biggest royal scandals when Prince Edward abdicated the throne to marry her. The infamous duchess became an obsession of Madonna, who directed Simpson's biopic "W.E.," in theaters now. Do you think she looks fit for a queen?
