Beginning with Kate Middleton, her choice by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen befitted her youth and new royal standing. The Duchess of Cambridge continues to impress the watching world as she and Prince William travel in Canada and, soon, to the U.S.
Kate Moss’s selection from the controversial reflects her celebrity status in the fashion world – the embellishments (especially at the hem) are gorgeous. (I personally don’t think the sheer panels on the lower part of the gown are a good choice, but the rest of the dress is beautiful.)
Last, but certainly not least in my book, is Charlene Wittstock’s elegant gown by . Again, this gown is an excellent reflection of her new status as Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco. According to Vogue.com, the dress took three seamstresses 2,500 hours to make and featured a five-meter long train adorned with 40,000 Swarovski crystals and 20,000 mother-of-pearl teardrops. They, in fact, made two identical gowns in case something happened to the first one.
While most of us can’t afford a designer gown, it’s wonderful that there are so many great ready-to-wear choices for brides today. Even J. Crew has a great selection at all price points – check them out!
