I do agree with your first alinea.
Although I don't think it would ever happen but couldn't you just picture Kate in the regalia Audrey Hepburn wore for the ball scenes in My Fair Lady?
She's definitely got the height to pull it off. That is bling with class if you ask me.

I don't see Kate wearing a wide, full ball skirt either. Maybe a fuller A-line skirt? 4 months to go before we know.. its gonna drive me buggy for sure!

Anyone seen this, a few famous designers sketch what they'd design for the wedding dress (basically confirming that none of these people will actually be designing the dress since I doubt if they've been hired for it that they'd be allowed to do this sort of thing for a magazine or whatever )

But anyway, quite nice to look at & see all the various ideas that some people in fashion world have.

Ahhhhh. Audrey hepburn in My Fair Lady. While I love the dress she wears, I can't quite picture that in Westminster Abbey. an A-line skirt would be a good guess though.
Or maybe something along the lines of Princess Grace's wedding dress with lace sleeves and a fitted bodice.

Mette merit's wasn't bad. I didn't like it much at first, but I watched a video of her wedding yesterday and she really did look nice. It must have been the chiffon giving it that light flowing feel. Not many people could carry off that look.

I love Vivienne Westwood myself, but I can see where some might consider her designs too extreme.

Everyone is saying Bruce Oldfield has the commission sewed up; it will be so embarrassing for him if someone else is chosen!

Interesting. The Vera Wang reminds me of Princess Grace.

I like the Lyn Devon. It is different but manages to cover the shoulders. Not formal enough, I don't think, but I like the departure from the norm.

Karl Lagerfeld looks like he was trying to capture the jaw-dropping ruffle-ness of Diana's dress, only more so!

I'm surprised I like the Valentino as much as I do. It might be because I like the drawing style the best! I think the ruffles on this dress work because they are transparent.

Can't wait to see what the real dress looks like!

Yes, the Valentino diaphanous creation, somehow, tugged at my heart. Really pretty, but not for Catherine. The last one, #13, can't remember who it is, would be my bet -- but with a covered back.

Yes, because not only is not getting married in a dress Liberace wouldn't be caught dead in a clearly contemptible thing, it's worthy of an emoticon demonstrating involuntary stomach spasms.

The description "lots of lace and sparklies" makes it sound not like a wedding dress, but more like a costume. Costumes are for Halloween, not a wedding. There's a difference between say, Brussels lace and some jewels sown in strategic places and something that Bob Mackie might design. Bob Mackie is not the go-to guy for a royal wedding dress.

I get the idea that no one around here will be happy unless Catherine's dress makes her look like an upside marzipan cupcake covered in sprinkles.

I must say, I'm by no means fan of J-Crew but that is a stunning dress (and I hate sleeves)

Alberta Ferreti, J. Mendel, Gucci, J-Crew, Rebecca Taylor and Monique Lhuillier have the most potential looking at Kate's style.

Where have you been? If anything is in fashion for the past few years when it comes to wedding dresses, it's lace and sparkles.

Vivienne Westwood makes some gorgeous couture clothes, but none of them would be proper for a royal wedding. Her particular aesthetic is a tad too avant-guard for the BRF, although I would love to see Catherine in a Westwood creation at some other function.

I don't pay attention what's "in" and what's "out". I dress for function and what I can afford and what flatters me and makes me look my best, not for labels and what is all the rage. All of the weddings I've been to in the last 3 or 4 years, all the brides wore very modern, sleek, classical-lined dresses. Not one of them dressed like Cinderella Barbie going to the ball.

If I had the chance to design a dress for Catherine to wear for her wedding, it would look similar to CP Mary's dress with slightly shorter sleeves, a longer train (the Abbey has a longer walk up to the altar than the church Mary was married in) and in a brighter white color since she's a bit more tan than Mary was. I would raise the neckline at the shoulders slightly, but keep the overall neckline as a boatneck (I think it flatters all bust sizes) and I would bring the back down a little. Put her hair half up, half down, curl the ends slightly to give movement, pin the veil directly to her hair and hand her a bouquet.

I like the sound of that. I'm definitely hoping she'll go for something classic and not too over-the-top - which, based on her style so far, I think she will.

Though I think I'd like to see her hair all up . . . but I somehow think it'll be at least part down, as she doesn't seem to like to wear her hair up very often, and when she does, it's loose.

Something about the Valentino, lovely - perhaps a bit young for Catherine, but my favorite. The yellow one done by the writer's 'friend' Benz was it? Puleese, I'd use the spitting furball emoticon for that one. And the Vera Wang - surprisingly unflattering and boring from a designer of her caliber.

My personal preference is the J. Crew. The very simple style could be made special by the choice of fabric or subtle beadwork or sparkles. I don't mind sparkles at all as long as they are subtle. I also find myself drawn to the Valentino though. The drawing is beautiful and the design is fresh and modern yet also beautiful. Though it has ruffles they are large and sheer. The drawing antipates she would have her hair down, and the overall look is quite lovely and would suit her, I think.
