The outfits that Kate wore in the official pictures were by high street favourites of hers - Reiss (white dress) and Whistles (cream blouse)

Kate notably wore a white Reiss coat that zipped to the side at William's airforce graduation

I didn't know that coat was from Reiss... For some reason I thought it was from Issa.

Good grief Sassy! Were we looking at the same site? I only saw one that had the remotest of bones of a possibly decent gown. The rest lacked style, grace, élan, elegance and with those willowy "S" poses the (mainly) Heroin Chic models struck, skinny gaunt and not the least bit romantic. Very Hollywood opposed to Very Royal style. Ugh!

I think Kate looks wonderful in her official engagement photographs - the white Reiss dress is very simple indeed and quite a contemporary look that will not look outdated in years to come. Kate's style so far since the engagement is very clever because it is so simple and unfussy!

I loved the white dress, she could easily dress it up or down IMO. White looks good on her and im glad she went for another designer besides Issa for the pictures.

I don't find the dress itself very beautiful but it looked good on her

Is that a little zipper on the left side of the dress?

Yes, it is. The zipper was photoshopped away. Otherwise, the dress would have looked like this:

We should be seeing a zipper clearly just below Prince William's right hand.

Hm... perhaps they've changed the dress a bit for the shooting - anyway, photoshopping is less work and also likely. It's really a nice dress, I could even imagine to buy a dress like this (though I liked the engagement outfit, it wasn't my cup of tea).

I think Kate is very conservative in her choices but she's getting those choices right. I like the fact she's choosing smaller designers and high street...probably a sign of things to come and a wise move!

Who was the designer? I think she did well- it was very pretty and modern, liked that she wore tights underneath!

Sorry I just noticed this. I went straight to his website...I just meant she will choose something "safe" like the dresses I saw there. And honestly if you looked at his non wedding dresses there were a couple that looked exactly like something Diana has worn in the past. I saw maybe 2 wedding dresses that had potential IMO.
