Most people can agree that Princess Diana is a style icon. She’s worn countless unforgettable outfits over the years, and two of them, you can now get your hands on, thanks to Rowing Blazers and their new fall-winter collection, which launched on Thursday. It pays tribute to Princess Diana by replicating some of her most signature sweaters.
Princess Diana and Her Infamous Sweater Collection
The new fall-winter line at Rowing Blazers features 2 sweater replicas that Princess Diana often wore. The first one is the sheep-printed red sweater, which she often wore. Some people said that it was her way of telling people that she felt like an outsider in the royal family because of the single black sheep on the front.
Rowing Blazers was able to work directly with the original designers of the sweater – Joanna Osborne and Sally Muir. They recreated the style, and although there have been many copies of the sweater made in the past, this is the first time since 1994 that the original sweater, labeled as “Warm and Wonderful” will be re-released as an exclusive collaboration.
The second sweater is another popular one that she’s worn — the “I’m a Luxury” sweater. The late Princess of Wales, Princess Diana, wore this sweater back in the ‘80s. Rowing Blazers also worked with Gyles Brandreth, who was the co-creator of the design, to make it available for the first time since the 1990s. The back of the sweater has a saying that reads “Few Can Afford.”
A Universal Release
Both of the sweaters that Princess Diana wore a few times will be available in both men’s and women’s sizing for $295. This is the chance for anyone who has ever wanted to channel their inner royal fave to do so. The sweaters are available in sizes XS-XXXL. Sizes have already begun to sell out.
Modern Family Cast Members Celebrate Actor Ed O’Neill’s 74th Birthday
It’s safe to say that we all know Ed O’Neill as the eternally cool, sarcastic, and sometimes awkward dad. He was Al Bundy on Married… with Children, and he’s recently graced the screen with his portrayal of Jay Pritchett on the award-winning sitcom Modern Family. Yet, there is so much more to him and his vibrant personality, which is why his fellow cast members from Modern Family took to social media to send all their best wishes on Ed’s special day.
Ed O’Neill: A Lifetime Legacy
Although he won a football scholarship to Ohio University and earned the nickname Ed O’Winner, being in professional sports just wasn’t in the cards for Ed. He was cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers soon after they signed him as an undrafted free agent, and that’s when his acting journey began. He first graduated with a theater major from Youngstown State University before playing alongside Al Pacino, Jeff Kinsland, and Edward Woodward among others. Finally, Ed landed his signature roles on the hit television shows, Married… with Children and Modern Family — which happen to be more than a decade apart.
Sofia Vergara Was First to Celebrate His Bday
Sofia, who plays Gloria Delgado-Pritchett — the second wife of Ed’s character — has known the actor for more than a decade. Ed’s birthday is on April 12th, and the show’s final episode ran just a few days earlier, which made her Instagram post extra heartwarming. She shared a picture of them together and captioned it: “Feliz Cumpleaños Ed O’Neill!!🎉🎉🎉🎉 miss uuuu already!❤️❤️”
The Whole Cast Was Eager to Congratulate Him
Much like Vergara, the rest of his on-screen family of the last 11 years was happy to celebrate Ed O’Neill’s birthday with tributes on social media. Among those who had heartfelt wishes for the actor were Jesse Tyler Ferguson (who plays Ed’s son), Jeremy Maguire (Ed’s youngest on-screen son), and Eric Stonestreet (his on-screen son-in-law). All we can add is — Happy Belated Birthday, Ed!
