Today you’re a princess. Or a queen. Or whatever you want to be. It’s International Tiara Day, so slip on that tiara and feel like you rule the world.
(Just don’t let it go to your head. Nobody likes a tyrrant! 😉 )
Once upon a time, only married women who were royalty wore tiaras. Today everyone from brides to prom queens can wear them.
And on International Tiara Day everyone who wants to should wear a tiara proudly, all day and everywhere.
Yes, including to work or even the gym!
The day was originally just a one-off event, created by Barbara Bellissimo, of Seasons of Success, and held on May 24, 2005.
But, according to the day’s official website, Lynanne White of American Rose Bridal believes every woman should be able to wear a tiara. So she got Barbara’s permission and re-launched the day as an annual event.
As it turns out, the May 24 date is perfect, because it’s also Queen Victoria’s birthday.

Or, if you’re not really the tiara type, wear a metaphorical tiara and act like the strong woman you are (because sometimes we forget, really we do!).
