Ohhhh I love it! I generally don’t like dresses with sleeves (sorry, that’s just me), but this one is just beautiful!!

I couldn’t see what lenght was the veil. Was it cathedral, waltz? Did someone see it?

Aaaand for all those who say tiaras are outdated: She’s wearing a tiara 😀 YAY!!

I think the dress looks like it will convert to a strapless slim line. The skirt looks removable and the lace overlay with sleeves looks like it could be removed. I can see all that going away and her adding a gorgeous sparkly belt.

Not a fan of the veil at all (too short) and the tiara should have been farther back on her head. So glad the only jewelry she wore was some beautiful earrings. Perfect.

@MrsNeutrino: Thanks!

I think it looked great and very modern. Maybe this will convince my mom of letting me wear a fingertip veil insead of a cathedral one…

I’m so happy I woke up on time to see the dress 🙂 She looked beautiful and it made me think how all girls have our day. Today is Kate’s!

I loved the dress, and the veil and the flowers. I loved how it was understated but still very classy and royal looking. She truly looked like a real princess. I was worried she would be wearing some over the top poofy thing, but this was just right.

I LOVED her dress. So beautiful. I thought it was her, and it was appropriate for a royal wedding.

I hate that I am, but I am underwhelmed! It’s not that it’s not beautiful, but I just find it nothing special, and considering she had the entire world of fashion at her fingertips, I can’t believe her dress came out so similar to dresses that are already out in so many other lines.

@ohheavenlyday: I think it is very timeless and classy.. but I totally agree.. when she came out I was like.. oh.. niceee…. I was more impressed that she chose to have a train and a short veil. For some reason I was expecting something cutting edge and a trendsetter, we kinda already have this grace kelly trend..

I think she chose a perfect dress! It’s just right for her elegant style. It looks amazing on her! I love the lace top too and the line of the skirt.

@anne B: Hahahahaha. I’m thinking that after today all the chinese dress makers will be offering that model :p

 

Anyways, I know that it wasn’t a trendsetting dress, that it was inspired on Grace Kelly’s dress, but I think it was just perfect. Cutting edge, super trendy sometimes is missunderstood and for some (especially very conservative people) can look trashy :p I think she just wanted to look beautiful like any other normal bride. Like my mom says: Elegance is simple.

I’m not underwhelmed at all 🙂 Oh, and I’m glad she didn’t choose a giantic dress :p
