I looked at the Libelula website and the bespoke wedding dresses don't say Westminster Abbey wedding to me.

Neither does the "Lord of the Rings" look the fashion historian was predicting. Speaking of whom, Kate should absolutely not wear gray because she's not a virgin. Ms. Fashion Historian should know that the white wedding dress is based on Queen Victoria's color choice not on the idea of "purity". Kate does not and should not have to "handle" that. I expect she will wear white or ivory.

I'm wondering if Cranston is really the designer, anyway. That article has no source to prove it.

Maybe not but because they're bespoke they reflect the taste and style of the person who ordered it. I think the pictures are just there to show off the sorts of dresses she's made.

I sincerely hope she wears a dress with sleeves or straps of some sort that starts a huge trend, because I'm sick to death of the strapless trend. I've always wanted a wedding dress with some kind of short sleeve, if I ever get married, but that stupid trend is so widespread I don't think they even make them with sleeves anymore.

I totally agree. The strapless ball gown trend is getting really old. I found a sleeveless dress that was not a ball gown when I got married (nearly 2 years ago) but it was hard. The bridal salons kept putting me in strapless dresses and showing me the little lace or sheer things they can sew on to make it have a strap or whatever. The fact that there was anything to try on at all was probably thanks to Jenna Bush wearing a sleeveless more fitted dress instead of a strapless ball gown. Her wedding was a few months before I started shopping and all the stores had replicas of hers on display.

I am sick of watching brides hike up their strapless dresses throughout the ceremony and reception. We were at one wedding where the bride handed the maid of honor the bouquet before the exchange of rings then took hold of the top of her dress with both hands and gave it a hard pull resulting in lots of bouncing boobs. Right in the front of the church. Very attractive and classy.

LOL at the reaction to her making the ring fit. It's as though some commentators feel she's saying "See that dead MIL? I'm skinnier than you!"

I seriously want to stay home from work to watch this and the ladies SP. Can't wait!

They're both on the same day? I didn't realize! :) I really have to clear my DVR before I go out of town that weekend!

I think she'll wear something very figure flattering, but not tarty. I bet it will show off her physique to advantage, but won't display lots of skin/cleavage. You usually don't want to (traditionally) show your shoulders in church, and since this is Westminister Abbey, with the Queen in attendance, and the whole world watching, she probably won't do that there, although later on is another matter.

It won't be frothy or overdone, etc., but probably more simple, elegant and many brides will wonder why they didn't go for somethng like that, instead of the showy things many brides wear.

Her usual style shows simple, elegant lines and i bet this will be much more of the same, but much more elegant and unique. Think the opposite of Diana's 80's style dress.

I'm not going to believe anything I hear/read/see until she gets out of her car at Westminster Abbey on the 29th!

I went to the ballet last night (Midsummer Nights Dream) and at various points every female dancer on stage was wearing a tiara. I'm talkin' 20 plus crowned heads together on stage, with many styles represented. Thanks to this thread, I spent some time considering which tiaras were most flattering. :lol: And I also realized how much :bribe: the ballet company must have invested in costume tiaras. :P

I'm betting on something with cap sleeves like this. (http://www.jlmcouture.com/Alvina-Valenta/Bridal/Additional/Style-9751?linetype=&selected_designer=&silhouette=&waist=&neckline=26&page=1)

The rumoured designer is the designer of the coat she wore to a wedding late last year

http://stylenews.peoplestylewatch.com/2011/01/11/kate-middleton-recycles-from-her-own-chic-closet/

If the leak is true, I'm wondering if she's going to go the coat dress look like Princess Letizia

Interesting - the coat dress or matching coats/dresses has become one of her signature looks, and it certainly would make an elegant yet timeless statement.

As for who is designing, I agree that we won't know for sure until she steps out of the car - I would not be surprised if false rumours are being put out to keep it a surprise, and keep people from hounding the designers and speculating too much on the design (the danger being that the more people think they know what it will look like, the greater chance that people will be disappointed).
