    I kind of feel like we should’t be able to buy it – it belongs on her. It’s too iconic to become a dress that everyone wears, all the time. Getting inspiration from her style (i.e. lace, simplicity, large pleats in the dress) is a little different.

    Hahaah! And yes, this is certainly a dress that pretty much everyone has seen so they could compare.

    And I wouldn’t buy it because I don’t like it.  But if I did, and I had not already bought a dress and I could afford it? Hells ya I get it.

    I would only wear a dress like that if I was also marrying a prince, or  having some lavish, grand affair with 500 guests.  Otherwise, I’d just feel silly.

    I would sweat like a fat kid in gym if I wore sleeves on my wedding dress – lace or not !

    I seriously wouldn’t want to show up to my own wedding having everyone there thinking that someone else looked better in the dress I was wearing.

    Also, i have fat arms.  They would look like encased sausages in that dress.  All my fat swooshing through the lace? It would not be pretty

    The Legends by Romona Keveza dress that looks just like Kate’s was on the runway three weeks ago.

    Obviously, some designers were sketching their knock offs as she walked down the aisle, but sleeves and lace were BIG on the runways during Bridal Fashion week this year.

    I believe this went down the runway on April 11th:

     

    EDIT: I found an interview where Romona said she designed the collection with Kate in mind.  Is she psychic?

    Romona Keveza explained she designed her new Legends collections with Kate in mind. “I took elements from Kate’s personal style such as ruched waists, flowing skirts, these are things she is known for, v-necklines and also I did illusion necklines — perfect for very formal weddings,” she said.”

    I would buy it if it were the dress I loved the most, but not because Kate wore it. Personally I love the idea of sleeves, but they weren’t my dream wedding style so I wouldn’t end up with it either way.
