Diana's Designer Does Kate Dress

Many of you would know I am an avid fan of the royal family and am more than a tad excited about the upcoming nuptials of William and Kate.

I blogged about my vision of Kate's wedding dress and many royal weddings here not long ago.

This is what I can see her wearing...
...or something similar.

One of the blogs I love, and is on my blog roll, is All Things Princess Diana.
Yesterday's post on that blog was Elizabeth Emanuel's vision of Kate's wedding dress.
Yes, the Elizabeth Emanuel, designer of Princess Diana's wedding dress.
This is her design...

It is stunning, there is no question about that.

But I am fairly certain a royal bride would not wear a strapless or off-the-shoulder dress, in the church at least. A bolero, capelet or jacket is possible, if she wanted a strapless gown for the reception. I think that is much more likely than a completely new dress for the reception as many celebrities have chosen to do lately.

I'm also fairly certain she won't be doing the fish-tail thing.
She has the height and figure to carry it off beautifully, but she has already shown that her style is really quite traditional. A fish-tail just doesn't seem her, to me.

Here are some more designer's impressions...

This Valentino gown is so pretty

This Karl Lagerfeld design is gorgeous but not Kate, I don't think. Do you?

I love this by Alberta Ferretti

Again, bare shoulders and fish-tail from Yigal Azrouel, I don't think so.

Anyway, only 52 more sleeps and we will all know!
Yeah, I'm excited!!


  1. love your work miss thea xxx

  2. Ahhh, I love a wedding! And a royal wedding is just too exciting for words. Really looking forward to the big day... and seeing if your predictions are on the money.
    I tend to agree in that Kate will stick with tradition somewhat, although I won't be surprised if she does something to break with it either. A strapless or figure hugging gown might be just the way to do it too.


Just one little comment will make my day.
