There would be one dress for the church and another for the reception. She looks great in fitted styles. Also .. what will Zara wear in the Spring?
Kate is quite slim, but not petite. She's 5' 10" tall (1.524 m)!

I do like the Dia style and it would lend itself to customization for sleeves. It really does look like a Kate style to me.

The third one is a fantastic gown! I can't get into the other "flaminco" styles; they're pretty, but not wedding to me.

That dress is fabulous but I feel that the hairdo is way too severe and the whole look is incomplete without a veil. As for the other dresses I've seen where the model is wearing a veil, they are all lovely but the veils need to be very much higher up and further forward. After all, you don't put a hat that low down at the back of your head so why wear a wedding veil like that?

Vivienne Westwood can be excluded, atleast. (expected)

I agree with Vivienne. Style is certainly no thing Kate possesses. (yet)

5' is 1,524m But that would be very small, at least 10cm smaller than me 10'' are 0,254m, so 5' 10'' are 1,78m

Vivian Westwood said what I've been saying all along! Kate is not stylish!

Thank you for correcting my metric math. I used a converter and, obviously, it's calculation was incorrect.

However, that doesn't change the fact that Kate isn't petite. She's slim, but not petite.

And what the rest what the world has known for years. Only now since the engagement announcement, she's dubbed as Catherine and style icon and blabla.

I think something Calvin Klein would suit her, though I doubt Costa's designs would be cathedral enough. Maybe in the near future. I want the designers to either be Lanvin, Alberta Ferreti, Matthew Williamson or even Alexander McQueen. (Sarah Burton ofcourse) But I don't think that will happen.

I'm petite, as I'm only 5'3. I'd say anything shorter than 5'6 is considered petite.

I always thought petite meant short, and rather small body size. Just kind of "tiny" all around. So from my understanding of the definition, Kate is in no way petite. She's thin, but she's rather tall.

As far as Westwood's comments, she has her own style and tastes, and that's fine. She made similar comments about Emma Watson, who I would say is rather stylish as well. Kate is stylish in her own way, and will appeal to those with similar fashion senses. I personally find her very stylish...so to each their own.

Kate seems to know what flatters her body best, and what she's most comfortable in personally, so my guess is we'll see something simple, and in keeping with her personal tastes, which seems to favor the wrap style, so maybe that's where we will see the "embellishment."

Personally I wish ISSA was considered a true British designer, as I would love to see Kate in a design by the ISSA house. But I'm biased, as I have a personal fondness for the line.

Usually Petite in clothing is for anyone 5'3" and shorter. If you are taller you are simply skinny. Petite is simply tiny all around.

Well, looking at the lady herself. I can't say that she looks any better.

I don't like most of what Kate wears on a day-to-day basis, but she is "stylish" because she's wearing what everyone else in her age range is wearing. A person does not have to have style to be valuable. I think, in time, she will surprise us all.

I would rather call Kate slender, skinny has a negative ring to it in my ears. I am slender myself too, but nowhere as long as she is with my 5'5".

Royal Ephemera

Although this is not about the upcoming BRF wedding, or Kate's dress, it is about Royal Weddings of the past. While surfing, I found this site http://www.argyll-etkin.co.uk/2011/2011_Brochure.pdf. It has documents related to royal engagements/weddings over the last 200 or so years. Very interesting.

All the materials are for sale.
