Kate's reception dress is STUNNING. I love that little furry shrug.

It didn't bother me at all that Pippa wore white. There was no chance anyone was going to mistake her for the bride. Every miniscule detail of this shindig was planned to the nth degree - it's not like Pippa showed up unexpectedly in white, and Kate was all "You bitch! I can't believe you're trying to take away attention from me on my special day!"

And wasn't Pippa's dress by the same designer, anyway?

Wasn't sure where to put this for the point I'm trying to make, but oh well:

NEW YORK —

Seconds after Kate Middleton emerged from her car outside Westminster Abbey in a ball gown with lace sleeves, designers around the U.S., glued to their TV sets, were sketching her look, setting in motion a mad rush for mass-produced versions that are expected to be in stores as early as late June.

For brides-to-be who can't wait even four weeks, David's Bridal, the largest U.S. bridal chain, was already trumpeting a strapless look from Oleg Cassini, paired with a lacey bolero jacket, on its website as an already available stand-in as it scrambled to push out modified knockoffs of the real thing to stores by September.

Meanwhile, the television home-shopping channel QVC said shoppers will be able to pre-order earrings inspired by the diamond drops worn by Middleton as early as Monday night. The piece, which will sell for under $50 and was created by Kenneth Jay Lane, will be available to shoppers in two months.

Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, didn't break new fashion trends on Friday, but fashion experts say her elegant understated look, which featured a V-neck intricate lace bodice, is expected to bring back a new era of classic wedding dressing that was just starting to re-emerge in designers' collections.
Some fashion houses in New York are trying to get a "fashion copyright", which is ostensibly supposed to protect the intellectual property of dress design from the malicious hordes ready to copy it. But it sounds like this is a pretty good example of a booming industry that has learned to depend on this sort of quick turnover/knock off model. The idea seems pretty silly at first, but we've internalized the notion that art is impossible without the threat of fines and jail time. I can see why the designer of Middleton's dress would want a monopoly on replicas and the downscale market, but it's hard to see how we would have benefited as a society.

My favorite reactions to the dress were the sighs of relief from women - "Oh good! Now i'll be easier to find wedding dresses with sleeves again!"

Ha.

I loved the trees.

According to The Telegraph, they were six English field maples and two hornbeams.The English field maple symbolises humility and reserve, and was used to make loving cups in medieval times, while the hornbeam signifies resilience. The trees will be taken to the Prince of Wales’s Highgrove estate, where they will be planted as a permanent reminder of the day.

The whole thing was so incredibly romantic, I loved it all.

I watched some of the highlights yesterday - they do seem very devoted to each other & hope they have a wonderful life with each other. I will admit that I also teared up several times, thinking how Diana would have been so proud of her boys. I thought it was very respectful & touching the number of details that seemed to honor her.

I still find myself watching and re-watching highlights of the wedding event. It went off without a hitch which is amazing. The weather was as beautiful as the day and the few bursts of sunlight at poignant moments was Diana looking down on the event, smiling at her boys. I loved the trees in the Abby , the meaning behind them and that they will be planted for all to watch them grow as the happily married couples' relationship will do through the years.

I loved the dress. It was as beautifully elegant in a simple way as I imagined. I loved seeing William whisper "you look beautiful" to his Bride, then the loving glances they gave one another a short while later while seated during the service. It really was a beautiful service. Kate's brother did a very good job during his reading. Everyone was dressed to the nines and the hats were a real treat. Not sure WTF Beatrice and Eugenie were thinking with their choice of attire especially hatwear ( maybe something to do with being pissed their mother has been forced out of the royal family?!!) I laughed at the guy who did a few cartwheels up the aisle when the Abby cleared out!

I initially watched it live on CNN but Piers Morgan and Cat Deely (who I love) were really annoying the way they kept badgering Anderson Cooper. The 20/20 coverage was alright but I think BBCAmerica was best. It was fun hearing a few people who had been to the wedding and the Queen's reception interviewed like the lady harpist. I may splurge on a copy of the ceremony from iTunes because it was so beautiful especially the choice of music.

Not very Abbey: Cart-wheeling verger carpeted by clerics after becoming wedding web sensation

By Jonathan Petre

The Westminster Abbey verger who became an internet sensation after cart-wheeling down the nave following the Royal Wedding has been rebuked by senior staff.

Sources at the Abbey said the man was feeling ‘fairly chastened’ after his impromptu display of acrobatics was caught on film.

Abbey staff have warned him not to speak publicly about the incident.

That guy should know better. There is to be nothing whimsically celebratory occurring in a place of worship.

Fergie's daughters outfits were awful I know crazy hats are the big thing there but wtf?



they have their mother's dress sense

Ha.
They said that with Ivanka Trump's dress too-that was a gorgeous dress, with the lace overlay short sleeves. It was an Orthodox Jewish ceremony so she had to wear something like that. I wish it would start a major trend towards sleeves, I am so sick all those cookie cutter strapless dresses. They're not flattering unless you're very skinny-or very toned. And they have just all started to look the same.

I can't understand wanting to wear an exact knockoff of Kate's dress. I do admit I'd be tempted to get those knockoff earrings if I had short hair and they would even show up. They are beautiful-they were a gift from her parents.

I wonder if she really did her own makeup (she supposedly took lessons and had the woman there that day if she needed help). If she did, that takes guts. On tv the hi def made the blush look harsh- in the Abbey. I guess she always wears strong eyeliner and a smoky-type eye, and it does photograph well on her. She's very photogenic.
