Princess Diana And Prince Charles Both Messed Up Their Wedding Vows
Huffington Post - 10 months
Wedding day jitters are natural, whether you have to keep your composure in front of a few dozen guests or 750,000,000 and Queen Elizabeth II.  Cosmopolitan U.K. recently resurfaced a blunder made by Princess Diana as she recited her vows to Prince Charles at their 1981 wedding. Instead of calling him Charles Phillip Arthur George, she swapped his first two names, referring to him instead as Phillip Charles Arthur George ― despite both Charles and the officiant just having recited it correctly (and, you know, it being her husband’s name).  In Diana’s defense, four names is a lot to remember. And Charles didn’t get through the widely watched fairytale event clean, either: According to the BBC, he vowed to endow “thy goods,” rather than “my worldly goods.” Neither mistake is a big deal, but they are humanizing moments we can’t help but revisit. They’re a good reminder that nerves get to everyone, and there’s no such thing as a flawless wedding day, anyway.

I've Never Felt Worse Than In The Moment I Looked My 'Best'
Huffington Post - 12 months
There is a photo of me, the best one I have. Maybe the best one I’ll ever have. It was one of hundreds taken by a professional photographer whose pleasantly scruffy assistant spent hours flitting around her, holding a disc reflector to throw the Parisian summer light onto me just so. Before she’d even picked up her camera and he’d reluctantly put down his cigarette, a makeup artist had spent 90 minutes on my face, my hair, my nails. They were going for a ‘50s bombshell look – I’m not entirely sure why, now, but it made sense at the time – so there were hair extensions and curlers and false eyelashes and very bold red lips. In this photo, I’m sitting on a staircase, my hair mimicking the a curly black wrought iron bannister, with my hands demurely in my lap but my mouth slightly open in a Jessica Simpson-ish kind of way. My wrap dress, which I almost never wore in real life because it was too revealing, too clingy, is showing just the right amount of flesh. My eyes, thanks to the...
