Her dress is ver haute couture; with her long neck the ballet "Swan Lake" comes to mind haha. I also don't like her bosom being so exposed. Ah well.

She does have the right profile for such a dress becos of her ballerina neck, of course the bust part is exposed, but I still like Her!!


What did u think of Laura Lopes dress?

Now, now.
I have to say, this is one big reason I read the Forum: the reactions sometimes make me laugh out loud! I actually liked the dress quite a bit, bar the breast part though--I loathe breasts hanging out <anywhere>. I thought it was pretty well done, in a simple way, and kindof liked the simple presentation of it, until....the feather pillow comment!! Now I can't look at the picture anymore without bursting out laughing!

It had no sophistication at all, and Diana herself mentioned years later that she hated it in retrospect.

I also did not like the Countess of Wessex's ensemble, especially the clunky pearl necklace that Edward designed for her. It was boring.

I also did not care for Pss. Caroline's first wedding outfit. It looked like an illustration out of a "Mother Goose" picture book.

Lastly, and surprisingly, I was very disappointed in Letizia's wedding dress. The dress itself was beautiful, but it totally overwhelmed her tiny figure. She looked swamped by it and the circular train kept folding over on itseld and making it even less possible than usual in these dresses for the bride to move, let alone walk gracefully. That dress was suitable for a tall woman, not a tiny one.
Couldn't agree more with everything you're saying.
I always hated Diana's dress, even back on the day (but then, I've always preferred seventies style anything to the overblown eighties fashion, which Di's dress inaugurated by the way. If it hadn't been for Di's wedding disaster gown, the whole decade afterward might have turned out differently, fashion-wise.)

Sophie Wessex: couldn't agree more, what a washout she was. Couldn't believe her friend the designer made that piece of bathrobe for her. The only thing that was excellent was the veil: it was made of an exquisit material, silk I think, and the way it moved...you have to watch a video to appreciate it, believe me.

And then Letizia, my god how she drowned in that dress. It was amazing she could come up for air to breathe at all. Her head all but disappeared what with that huge erect collar on the dress. And the embroidery on it...I understand the symbolism but it looked tacky the way it was done. I think that her dress was one of these occasions where it looked terrific on sketch but terrible once made on the bride.

That's what us 'normal' folk have on these royals. We typically don't commission a designer to sketch a dress specifically for us. If we did, we'd also take the risk of being stuck wearing a design that is not a great fit for our body type or personality at all.

mmm, she doesn't look too bad on this picture though. In fact, she looks kindof intriguing. But is this the same bride who wore that sort of burka thing also? Or is this the burka, revealed? if so, yikes!

I totally agree. Kalina looks terrible. Who designed her gown? Maybe she has done that - she is an artist?
But that was her choice, she like it and thare's no matter what we all think about that.

When I saw those pictures on TV first time I thought that she is bald. If I wouldn't know that are photos from her wedding I would think that she is a ghost - white lady or smth.

I'm not a fan of her veil. The veil kind of reminds me of a nun's habit. Except you are seeing some of her hair.

in any case, the whole national costume thing, while a fine idea, just turned into an ugly mess...she sort of looks like a little kid who got wrapped up in a bed sheet in order to play dress up. not exactly what i would want to be wearing at my wedding, let me just say.

"The bride’s gown had an enormous ethnologic value, because it was inspired in the Bulgarian culture."
Maybe the Bulgarian national costume would be better than this wedding dress?

"Bulgary" stands for Bulgaria...and this lady is Princess Kalina, marrying Kitin Munoz. She is the daughter of the former King Simeon II of Bulgaria.

I agree with most of you, Kalina of Bulgaria could have chosen a better wedding dress. She looks terrible.:(

I´m sorry to say that: but the bride herself is ugly. The dress is doing the rest.
