I thought that too, but after the church ceremony, when the bride took off the long-sleeved top it looked slimmer, I think. Anyway, it's a fabulously classic dress that will pass the test of time.
It's regal, it's unique... not something one of us would wear, and I do like that.
Also, I loved the detail of the embroidered Coat of Arms on the gown's train... it is certainly unique
And the hairdo seems to be a creation of Alexandre.
I can't say the same about the flowergirls... That hat (even with the associations to the Portuguese maritime culture), seems a bit ridiculous to me... sorry, Carolina Herrera

BTW, on another note, it seems D. Henrique de Bragança is done with his "girlfriend", since he appears on photos alone with his brother D. Miguel and Infanta Pilar of Spain.
