It’s taken me almost a week to process Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, mostly because of other things going on in the world (Hello? My priorities are definitely: 1) the tornadoes, 2) Osama bin Laden, and 3) the royal wedding. Guess they’re not the same as the national media’s, but I digress.)
Oops! I meant to say: William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. My bad.
The most exciting part of the royal wedding for me was, you guessed it, the clothes. And the hats. Oh, the hats! Some were stunning. Some looked like hideous modern art perched on the tip of your head. I almost felt like I should’ve paid admission and clipped a metal button to my lapel to look at Princess Beatrice.
Not to mention socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson. I actually like her dress. I find the gloves too matchy-matchy. But the hat reminds me of some stylized paper cap that soda jerks used to where in the 50s, only sitting at a precarious angle upon her head and with feathers sticking out.
Thankfully there was plenty of stunning fashion to behold to make up for these mishaps. First, how could we not, let’s start with Kate. My goodness. Is her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress not the most amazing, elegant, romantic wedding dress you have ever seen?! I immediately gasped when I saw it and thought, “That’s it. That’s the dress we’ve been waiting to see!”
The train was stunning as well.
And her reception dress was also simply, elegantly beautiful. I loved, loved, loved the furry shrug too.
And her sister, Pippa, also looked exquisite.
Now, we have to give a shout out to Queen Elizabeth. I mean, come on! She’s the queen! She looks so sweet in her yellow with matching bag, shoes, and gloves. And I gotta hand it to her, yellow is a popular color this year, so this queen knows her fashion.
Here’s a few more of my favorites:
What were your favorite fashions from the royal wedding? Would you consider wearing a hat like this to a wedding in the U.S.?
