International Tiara Day
International Tiara Day is a holiday observed annually on May 24th that encourages everyone to connect with their inner princess. Although most people think tiaras can only be worn during special occasions such as white-tie affairs, weddings, galas, or when meeting heads of state, the truth is that anyone can wear one of these jeweled headpieces regardless of the occasion or the person’s social status.
The History of International Tiara Day
Barbara Bellissimo is generally regarded as the person who invented this holiday back in 2005. She chose May 24th for the holiday because it coincides with Queen Victoria’s birthday, which occurred in 1819.
The purpose of this holiday is to encourage women everywhere to wear a tiara and get in touch with their inner princesses, and as a result, their inner beauty. This holiday has been ardently observed ever since.
Observing International Tiara Day
Obviously, donning a tiara and wearing it for the day is one way to celebrate. Of course, since we understand that not everyone has one of these headpieces just lying around, women can also take the time to do anything that they feel makes them more elegant and beautiful.
This can be as simple as doing something for themselves for the day, perhaps a manicure or full-body massage. After all, a person doesn’t have to actually wear a tiara. Sometimes the tiara is on the inside.
With that said, we encourage people to inspire other women to find their inner beauty and grace by using the hashtag #InternationalTiaraDay online. Let’s all wear our tiaras this holiday.
