    Looks like Kate's starting to get the Diana treatment :(

    My first reaction: oh, she is wearing a thong.

    :rofl: because I knew it would be a Calgary photo. I remember thinking that was the wrong dress for that sort of wind.

    But it's disappointing to see they chose to run with that.

    Unbelievably tasteless to run that photo. Anyone with any class would have cut the photo up and saved Kate the exposure (pun intended). I know, I'm naive. lol

    It's embarrassing but it'll blow over quickly. She wasn't doing anything illicit or untoward at the time and one can't control the wind. My guess is that she'll take this as a lesson to wear different underwear and perhaps not choose lightweight silk dresses with full skirts when in windy locales next time. And maybe have little weights sewn into the hem for even more security.

    I personally think it's harmless. She's done nothing wrong, could have happened to anyone.

    Yeah, I remember when something similar happened to Emma Watson, she quipped "As least I was wearing knickers" :lol:

    Yes, it's harmless. Kate has very cute cellulite-free glutes :cool:, but does Britain really need to know that its princess's underwear of choice is ... a thong? I'd rather know what William's is though ;) I can imagine the 80 years old Queen having a word with her DIL when she gets back to England, "In my days, proper women do NOT wear thong, blah, blah, blah" :lol:.

    I remember reading once Diana said that's one of the first things she learned about appearing in public. Weighted skirt hems.

    It is rather harmless, but it was the first thing I thought would happen when I saw that skirt blowing in the wind. Beautiful dress, perhaps not the best choice for that occasion...

    It was perhaps the one fashion oops of the entire trip. Is Calgary in an area that usually windy?

    Maybe she'll make a note to wear pencil skirts at airports. And cheers :summer:, she's got a cute ass, *WURQ*! ;)

    Thong or panty lines? Oh, the conundrum! :drama:

    Whatever, minor thing, could have happened to anybody. I experienced a wardrobe malfunction myself in a high-end mall a few weeks ago...strapless dress was falling down and I didn't notice until I realized my bra was showing. No idea how long it had been like that, but nobody gawked or pointed until I noticed it myself. :p

    Although I'm sure not everyone would have had it splashed all over the newspapers when it did, which is the really tasteless part.

    It was up long enough for people to make copies.

    So what do you use to weigh down a hem? Are there special weights that wouldn't affect the silhouette of the skirt?

    Some high end dresses have fine chains or small "sinkers" sewn into the hems.

    That lavender gown is divine.

    It's the Toronto Sun. 'Nuf said. Pretty tame, really, considering the type of crap they've published in the past.

    Yes - there are small metal balls encased in muslin. They come in different weights and you sew them in strategically. I buy them at drapery shops but they might be available elsewhere.
