Lookalike gowns
 
Don't alot of the wedding gowns lookalike, I mean royal wedding dresses. Like Marie-Chantal's, it looks alot like Princess Grace. And Mathilde's and Letizia's, long lost twins.

Interesting point. If you also look at Princess Margaret's dress against her daughter-in-law, Serena Linley, they are very similar as well.

the similarity of the collars...

I think there is absolutely no similarity between Sophie´s and Diana´s dress. Sophie married nearly 20 years after Diana. Diana had this typical 80´s style and it was a very big dress. Sophie had a minor dress with a short train and without Diana´s pomp.

I think there are some similarities between Mathilde and Letizia's dresses in that they were both jackets with high collars over sheath dresses underneath them. But there are many bridal gowns that have this look, such as Martha Louise and Sophie's dresses. The difference between Mathide and Letizia's gowns is in the details such as the embroidery in each of their gowns. I believe Letizia's contained a lot of symbols that related to Asturias and those of the royal house as well as symbols of fertility. I am not sure what was on Mathilde's dress jacket.

I think there was absolutely nothing similar between Diana and Sophie's dresses at all. Diana's dress was puffy all around and had layers upon layers of fabric while Sophie's dress was pretty streamlined. The only similiarity is the one picture of both Diana and Sophie looking back on their way up to the church with their veils on.

I read that Serena purposefully chose for her dress to eminate that of her mother-in-law's. It was a nod to Princess Margaret's style and Serena's entrance into the family by carrying on style. A rather nice touch I thought.

I read that as well! (Serena respectfully "copying" Margaret's dress)

I also agree that Diana and Sophie's dresses had absolutely nothing in common. The styles, sillouettes, fabrics and embelishments were all COMPLETELY different.

I think that style is a classic. You can see it in old hollywood movies from the 1950s and on brides today. The thing those dresses have in common ofcourse is the see-through or lace top and long sleeves. The bottom part is always different.
Princess Basma's daugther Farah wore a similar dress at her wedding a few months ago.

I agree- there are certainly physical resemblances between Sophie and Diana. There is another thread in the British Royal Family section that compares some of their similar style.

I was just trying to point out that their wedding dresses were not very much alike.

Great point! I hadn't realized how this dress was so similar as well! Thanks!

I did not know that nor did I see the similarity. That was a wonderful and classy gesture!

The gown worn by Princess Mia in "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement" was really, really similar to Princess Claire of Belgium's, right down to the tiaras.

If someone could post a picture of Princess Diana's dress and Mariah Carey's dress, they are almost identical. Mariah told designer Vera Wang to copy Diana's dress b/c she was fasinated by the wedding as a young girl.

wow that is so interesting!
Maybe they had a look at all the wedding dresses of all the real life princesses and the actress picked the one she liked most? The design suits the twenty-something character she played.
