This beautiful dress was designed by British couturier Norman Hartnell for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty wore the gown on October 14, 1957 to a state banquet and reception at Rideau Hall in Ottawa, the official residence of the Governor General. Known as the “Maple Leaf of Canada dress,” it features a garland of green velvet maple leaves and white roses. The Canadian symbol of the maple leaf emphasizes Her Majesty’s role as Queen of Canada.
