Kate's dress looks like a duplicate of Isabella's especially the top.
People keep comparing it to Grace's and I don't see it, the only things similar are the lace at the shoulders and arms. OTH it looked like Kate went to Isabella's wedding and took most of her dress ideas; I also think the same about Charlene.

This Manuel Mota gown looks a lot like Victoria wedding gown. The dress also came from a collection revealed before Victoria's wedding.

I loved Victoria's gown, it's on my Best list. But I like the Mota version even more...particularly the one on the right!

This Pronovias wedding dress looks like Madeleine's wedding gown:


I love this dress much more than Madeleine's dress.

There's was a discussion about similar wedding gowns on Sofia's fashion thread, so I thought I'd continue it here. On first glance, Sofia's dress did remind me of Kate's, but besides the lace sleeves, the gowns are really nothing alike.

It was also pointed out that Isabella Orsini and Kate had very similar gowns. I do see a similarity with the lace (on the sleeves and bodice), but that's where the similarities end. Isabella appears to be wearing a lace jacket and the rest of the dress is plain satin. Also the body of the dress is a lot fuller than Kate's.

I think since a lot of brides want to stick with something classy yet stylish, it's probably hard for designers to come up with original ideas. That's why most royal bridal gowns end up having similar elements. Claire's gown reminded me of Stephanie's. The top half of Princess Cristina's reminded me of Mary's, Letizia's and Mathilde's had similar looks, etc.

Agree on all fronts! The main point is, that all the white, classic wedding gowns look alike... At first look also, it is not easy to find differences, but when you examine the details you realize each dress is unique... Even lace can have as much as a variety of patterns as you like...

I would rather say that Princess Sofia's gown looks similar to the wedding gown of Princess Anita of Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven.

Princess Sofia:

Princess Anita:
