Kate’s dress is on show – but Queen calls display horrid!

July 22nd, 2011


 

The press got their first view of the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress today when the Sarah Burton design went on display in the Ballroom of Buckingham Palace, but although the beauty of the dress and the rest of display pleased most spectators, it seems the Queen wasn’t particularly pleased, calling the staging of the dress ‘Horrid’ .

The dress has been displayed on a headless mannequin, with the veil and Halo tiara sort of suspended in space, which the Queen expressed as being creepy! Kate, who was viewing the dress with the Queen was more tactful, saying it was displayed to show a 3D effect.

Kate looked fabulous in another white dress, whilst the Queen wore a pretty watered silk dress. I was struck that in this picture the Duchess seems to be morphing into Katie Holmes, or maybe it is the other way around.

This is a great opportunity to see the beautiful dress up close, although some commentators have said the white dummy makes it harder to see all the detailing on the neckline. Personally, I think a Tussaud’s style mannequin may have been more to people’s taste, but then that might have been considered a little bit cheesy! I’ll get my own chance to make up my mind about the display next Friday. I’m counting down the days!

  1. Ooh I can’t wait to see it! But I agree about the mannequin hiding the gorgeous detail of the neckline and sheerness of the sleeves.

    It was really lovely to meet you yesterday 🙂 I’m now following you on Bloglovin’.

    Kate was looking fabulous in this dress. She is very beautiful. She is a real princess.

    thanks.

    I agree about the colour of the mannequin not doing justice to the detail and embroidery on the dress, but I think a Madame Tussaud style waxwork would have been even more creepy!
