    I remember seeing a better copy of this photo and I loved Sonia's wedding gown. That was before all wedding gowns became strapless.

    Very few brides can pull it off. I had hope that the Duchess of Cambridge's dress would change trends, but it did not. (In
    North America anyway.)

    I've been told that it's because it's easier and cheaper to make the dress without sleeves or straps. But I'm sick of it too.

    Tanith and Charlie cut the cake. She pulls off the strapless look nicely.

    Yes, I heard the same thing. It really is quite a scam, eh? I don't want to derail this thread with a discussion on wedding dresses, but very fit brides like, Michelle Kwan or Tanith, can pull off the strapless gown very nicely. The average bride can't. I heard that wedding photographers hate the look.

    Tanith and Charlie must have honeymooned in Zihau. I was on the flight with them to LAX. They were sitting three rows ahead of us. I noticed them while waiting for the bano lol.

    Definitely true that it's umpteen gazillion times easier to omit sleeves and straps. For the dress makers. Shoulders and arms have complicated shapes!!

    Well, whew. I misread an earlier post and thought that Navka had married Putin, and wondered what happened to the former Madame Putin.

    Her daughter looks so grown-up now.

    Any skaters in the pictures?
