Anytime i read anything that has Daily Mail in it, I tend to file it away in the back recesses of my mind as a questionable source. What did catch my eye though in this article is that they state that both William and Kate have agreed to auction off her wedding dress for charity after the wedding.
Although I think the sentiment is very much Wills and Katish, this dress is going to be an historical piece and it just strikes the wrong chord to have it bartered off to the highest bidder.

Thoughts?
Kate may have preference for Grace type of gown but so does the entire universe although she is is not a Grace girl at all. She has more of a vamp in her.She is more an Audrey Hepburn- Jackie leaning stylewise girl and hope to see her in something sleek.

Neither Audrey Hepburn nor Jackie Kennedy were vamps. A vamp is a seductress, a sexually-charged woman. While both Audrey and Jackie were beautiful women with great personal style, neither of those things describe either their personalities, or the way they dressed.

I agree. Personally, Kate doesn't strike me as the vampish type. Where did that impression come from?

Interestingly enough, it turns out from various biographers that Princess Grace was much more of a "vampish" type than anyone ever thought. I would honestly rather avert my eyes from that description. :) In appearance I don't think any of the women mentioned gave the impression of being vampish.

Oh, I hope so! Grace's dress was absolutely gorgeous (the detail in it was just amazing!)
I actually saw it displayed in the Philadelphia Art Museum, and the photographs don't do it justice. Also, it doesn't look as dated as so many other royal wedding dresses.

I would much prefer that Kate chooses something like that, rather than a "modern" dress that will simply disappear in the grandeur of the Abbey.

I see no reason why she couldn't wear it quite as well as Grace did, and look just as lovely.

Oh good lord! I hope this is just a DM made up story without an ounce of truth. Austerity is one thing, but this takes it much too far. Royal wedding gowns are part of history and should be reserved as such. Putting the gown on display for the public to view with the proceeds perhaps going to charity would be much more fitting. Raising money for charity is wonderful, but to sell off Royal history is not. If they want to raise money for charity, Kate will have many opportunities to auction off dresses she wears for Royal functions in the future...just as Diana did.

I doubt that there is any truth in what the DM claims. Neither William nor Kate would be so stupid.

The back and hair of Natasha Poly's wedding. From what I can see, it's gorgoeus and she looks like a princess.

About the rumor Kate going a Princess Grace' wedding gown way. That would make this forum member very happy! As said here before by othere I also consider her dresss one of the best. I don't want a replica of it, but just to hear that as a inspiration makes me excited, regardless of who is the official designer.

Royal Wedding: Unknown designer Sophie Cranston said to be the creator of Kate's wedding dress - hellomagazine.com
The 29-year-old is said to have gone to Sophie with her dream dress in mind, having taken inspiration from her History of Art degree, in particular the Renaissance period.


A 'Grace Kelly' style gown has been done! Now it's some unknown dressmaker and a new speculation. I think the odds-makers are getting a little ridiculous here. If she wore something from Target or Old Navy, I'm sure they'd be up on the board as possible designers with odds for betting too.

Here is an update on the dress. I can wait to see the final thing

Is Sophie Cranston designing Kate's wedding dress? | Royal Insight

One thing is certain. If the designer does not happens to be Miss Cranston, Huffington Post' Yvonne York should consider a career change.

Oh surely not.

Well I certainly hope that if indeed they do that, the winning bidder does the honorable thing and returns the dress back to her. Seems to me that the best thing to do is to simply ask for donations to their favorite charities in lieu of wedding gifts. Auctioning off your wedding gown, even for charity is a bit tacky.

Hopefully this is just another one of those rampant ludicrous rumors the press are laying awake at night making up.

I'm waiting to hear that they're really eloping to Vegas and getting married by an Elvis impersonator. That would bring all the ridiculous wedding rumors full circle.

And Kate will wear a big fat Priscilla "do" and William a white satin jumpsuit with swarvorski crystals. The wedding song will be "Love Me Tender" and the couple will homeymoon in Blue Hawaii.

No no, the wedding song will be Can't Help Falling In Love, if they're honeymooning in Blue Hawaii. I'll be sorely disappointed if William isn't wearing a cape, either. The cape brings the whole sequined jumpsuit together.

Lets not forget that due to this "kingly" couple, the laws of equal primogenture will be passed to include all first born children. We now have a future Queen Lisa Marie to look forwards to.

And most definitely he must NOT forget the cape!

Entertainment tonight stated that Sophie Cranston is the designer. That Kate had designed it herself, and it is Ivory Duchess satin with only a 10' train. Not sure 10' is quite enough. 15' would be better.....
