These shapes look divine on her...
Remember the navy dress from Pippa's wedding? She looked gorgeous.

Eugenie's evening gowns to date have been on the sleek side. Usually dark colors with more of a column silhouette. She looked fantastic in all of them. I think a sleeker look might be the way to go for the wedding gown.

I agree, sleeker silhouettes suit her better. Also her dress wonít be very fussy. We can expect some lace/embroidery but not too much. Some dresses I think could suit her and what her dress may look like (except itíll be custom made).

Eugenie's mother was/is a famous Rubenesque body type(at her best) yet she was the most successful Royal bride of the 1980's(JMHO).

Sarah's gown was just beautiful, and it fit her perfectly.

I have no doubt that her daughter will be gorgeous at the altar next Fall no matter what type of gown she chooses.

These are good ones for her figure. The first is my favorite, I think that it leaves a lot of room for different tiara looks.

This would look lovely on Eugenie (neckline alterations needed)

I have always loved vintage, usually more like downton abbey (suggested for Meghan) but Eugenie even more. Eugenie has not only a look, but a style that is suited in that direction. Seeing her at Pippa's wedding, the fantastic blue dress she wore, is the perfect example.

I think she would look fantastic in a retro dress. With a great 50's hair style, and a veil placed down in the hair, not blusher.

Here a few I like. Some of tea length, but would look great at full length.

VW's designs have not always worked for Eugenie, she looked a complete mess at the Cambridge wedding.

I think Eugenie needs something simpler.
Westwood's designs seem very costumey.

Something on the lines of that navy dress (Paule Ka) she wore to Pippa's wedding would work for her. She never looked better!

Thanks for the info, muriel. I take it back. I had no idea that mess was VW!

VW has made some stunning looks for Eugenie but when they miss they miss. Will be interesting to see who she goes with and what style. You never know with her.

Vivian Westwood is fantastic when it comes to bridal and more formal gowns. The evening looks of hers we have seen Eugenie in, she looks great. Her bridal style would work with Eugenie's shape.

Good grief! That dress makes her look twice her normal size!

For my money, you can absolutely, definitely, scratch VW from the list of contenders.

Ah, yes. Now I remember. Thanks.
No, definetly not a good look for Eugenie there, other dresses from VW look lovely though. So, I'm not ruling her out just because of that particular dress.

^ I refer you to the pictures of Bridal gowns [and the other evening dresses she has done for Eugenie]. The Princess would be very unwise to rule her out ^.

IIRC she has lost some weight since that pic was taken...but it is a God-Awful dress.

Totally agree...she has looked just stunning in a few of the VW dresses.

I like the House of Hartnell for Wedding dresses.

Yes, I'm sure the Queen will gift some jewellery to her granddaughter.
