All I ask for is sleeves or at least shoulder straps..one thing I dislike is strapless wedding gowns...and because it is a royal wedding, I don't expect to see a strapless gown, but you never know...I would prefer three-quarter sleeves...I would like a hybrid of Sarah Ferguson's, Princess Mary's royal dresses with the signature Kate V-neck incorporated somehow...Satiny, simple, shoulders covered, long train, v-neck, no lace or bows on bodice...After the names of the Danish royal twins (hurry up 14 April), this is the next thing on my list of 'can't waits'...Kate's wedding dress! (hurry up 29 April)

I agree with Vivienne. Style is certainly no thing Kate possesses. (yet)
True, but there's so much hope. She's been focusing on other things, and style warrants attention (but should perhaps not be an obsession for everyone).

She's such an intelligent young woman, and style (if it doesn't come naturally - or through association, like Princess Grace), is a matter of well-advised decision-making.

I'm always curious to hear what women who are Kate's approximate age feel would be good designs for her (the more specific, the better).

I'm getting that the flamenco-style (while admired) is not the average idea of a wedding dress. Still, we see lots and lots of flamenco styles (they called them mermaid-styles in my day).

Column then? Drop waist?

I don't think Kate is losing too much sleep over the VW snubbing...

I would like to see her dress feature a Medici or Queen Anne neckline. I think they are the same neckline and it's mostly called Queen Anne but I have also seen it referred to as the Medici neckline. It would be a most appropriate style for a future Queen Catherine

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden's dress for the 1997 featured a Medici/Queen Anne neckline, which was blatantly copied for The Princess Diaries.

How about a dress like this for Kate? Absolutely stunning (save, of course the lack of a veil for this model)

^^^^^^
IMO, that dress is hideous. More like Prom Queen material than real Queen.

I have to agree. It's just cheap looking.

Eww, that is basically the classic example of trailer trash wedding dress.

I really liked the Gucci dress Frida sketched for Kate. http://www.beautyconfessional.net/im...-Middleton.jpg With a longer train, in ivory and (hopefully) a bit of an open back, it can be so stunning.

I think so too. I can actually see her in something w/a subtle Empire waist line actually. That would allow for the train to come from the dress w/very little break in design.

Sigh...I'm not describing that very well, but I can see it easily in my mind's eye.

Reading your post made me picture a dress from one of the Jane Austen adaptations ('Pride and Prejudice' from 1995). Is that what you were going for?

I like the style of those dresses because they're simple and allow more playing room when it comes to choosing accessories.

Now I hope I made sense. Fashion is not my strong suit.

I was thinking maybe she could wear something like
THIS (the sleeve is transparent - not sure if it's allowed)
THIS
THIS (with sleeves)
THIS (also with sleeves)

My favorite is the last one, although it might be considered a bit "revealing" on the backside

What do you thinK?
