I was a big fan of Princess Di and now it looks like I think Kate is just as wonderful! As soon as I saw her in the perfect cage hat and veil I knew she would be a hit. So recently brides.com asked a group of designers to design a gown they think the next Princess should wear. Reem Acra and Amsale were among the best and rumor has it she is considering one of the two. So who will it be? You decide. Here are the sketches provided by two designers currently available at White Couture. What do you think?
This ivory silk gazar A-line gown with a square neckline and long sleeves would feature French Alençon lace accents at the wrists, veil, and tiers of the gown. “The simple elegance of the gown reflects her personal style,” says the designer. “I used French Alençon lace accents to honor the traditional styles worn by previous royal brides, to whom Kate will undoubtedly be compared.” To view more gowns by Reem Acra, click here.
The designer, known for her modern interpretions of traditional bridal fashion, would dress Kate in this subtly beaded Alençon lace gown that features cap sleeves, a romantic, ballerina neckline, and a cathedral length train. “The gown is reflective of Kate’s young, fresh style with a nod to tradition,” says Amsale. “The silhouette is elegant and refined, and the fabric is all about texture—corded lace, soft beading, and detailed thread work.” To view more gowns by Amsale, click here.
