It probably will be. Just the start of it. After 10 years of nothing but this dress, everyone will blame her for brides of all shapes and sizes who won't look nearly so elegant trying to pull it off.


/but anything is better than 80s headbands.

I meant more that I was glad it wasn't based on any major trends right now. It's different for her starting a trend, rather than her dress reflecting current trends. Strapless with a colored belt would have been very trendy for right now.

I can't express how much I'm happy that she had the lace sleeves. For someone who is slender, that looked SO elegant. Bring back sleeves people! lol Granted I think heavier people surprisingly look better in strapless gowns, as long as they fit well.

Except unlike the strapless ballgown or the mermaid (a truly ghastly style that only looks good on VERY fit, slender women, no matter what anyone tells you about curves) a sleek a-line has a shot at actually looking good on a variety of body types. The current trendy bridal looks really just do not flatter a wide variety of body types. If you're petite, the ballgown swallows you whole. If you're more than an ounce over a featherweight, a mermaid just emphasizes every last bulge. And very, very few people really have the bust and the toned arms to pull off a sleeveless, strapless corset top. Plus the cutoff at the waist by rouching or a belt sewn on or even just the fabric change between the strapless bodice and the skirt works great on the long-waisted, AWFUL on the short-waisted. Catherine's dress today is a shape that can very easily be adjusted as there's no sharp horizontal cutoff (even Grace Kelly's had that HUGE waist rouching.)

Yahoo wedding page headline: "Everyone Loves The Dress!" Apparently they neglected to call Frau Muller... :drama:

I think strapless gowns usually look hideous on heavier people (especially me) because they rarely fit well.

Frau Muller forgot to say that la mariée est trop belle. :D

A lot to do with the underarms, and the gowns not REALLY being boned to support much in the way of a chest...Especially the ones cut straight across! (Of course 2 of my 3 Latin dresses have long sleeves, so I may be biased...)

It's also been called the Scroll tiara.

Thank you.


It was a sign of the time. Diana's dress didn't look that bad back then. Look at weddings pictures of people from the 80s. I bet 95% of the time the bride had on some hideous lacy thing with puffy sleeves, a lacy headband (why was that ever in vogue? LOL), and typical 80s hair. I'm sure those brides and most people thought they were pretty happening back then.

I tried to make the same argument :lol:


I think a variation of the Chelsea Clinton's Very Wang wedding dress would've look great on Kate.

I think I read that her arms and shoulders had to be covered.



Is anyone else reminded of Ivanka Trump's wedding dress? (http://www.letitflow.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/ivanka-trump-jared-kushner-newlyweds.jpg) I loved it then and am wondering if Kate's designer was influenced.

Ivanka Trump's dress was magnificent. Kates was lovely, but Ivanka's was more interesting.

I thought Kate looked beautiful. The dress was conservative, but fit her perfectly and accented her body. It was a very Grace Kelly look, nothing wrong with emulating her.

Especially since they were both commoners marrying into a royal family.

I agree. And along with sleeves, I hope she returns some elegance and class to bridal fashions. I'm tired of the dresses that look like a wardrobe malfunction about to happen. Not to mention the hideous Pnina Tornai crap they sell on Say Yes to the Dress with see through corsets. (Pnina's probably weighing her options today between relying on enough tacky brides with money remaining or changing up her approach!)

I will disagree, however, about the heavier brides. Probably because I've yet to see one that is well fitted in her strapless ball gown and there are spare boobs popping out under the arms and lots of arm to see there and nothing good is happening.

Nice one. But her classiest ones are the see through to below the navel creations with well-placed beading, lace or embroidery to cover up the nipples.

I sincerely hope that the new Duchess of Cambridge has changed the tone enough to hurt Pnina's business.

True, but royalty in name. Both Grace and Kate were/are royal in their own elegance.

I'm a bit :wuzrobbed: that the current trend is overused, because I loved strapless with colour belt long before they were in fashion. Now I'll have to find something different if I ever get married.

Loved Kate's dress, and I would also like her eveningwear if it wasn't see-through and with an unfortunate corset. It seems to be the same one she was wearing this morning, and if there was any problem with the dress this morning it was the pointed-breasted corset. With thinner fabric to cover it, it's just not working.

I have no doubt that she has. As soon as I saw the dress this morning, I thought this would be duplicated over and over again, with good cause. It's so lovely.

I think people should wear whatever makes them feel and look beautiful, regardless of the trend. Kate certainly did.

This is my theory: when the dress was originally made Kate was a few pounds heavier and actually filled out the corset of the dress. Now that she's lost so much weight, the cups are empty and pointy.
