"The entire bridal industry is on pins and needles to see what Kate selects to wear ! It is so exciting to anticipate the trends that will be ignited by her selection. Kate’s style is simple and understated and her wedding gown needs to reflect that. I think that her gown should be long sleeved with a touch of lace incorporated into it. She has a stunning figure, so a fit to flare silhouette with a long train would be striking on her. A long veil with a blusher would be the perfect accompaniment to her gown, along with the requisite tiara. Ideally Kate will select a simple, yet elegant tiara that she will wear more as a headband than a tiara."
I found it difficult to take gowns from the runway as an example of what she will wear. I haven’t seen anything out there that is worthy of her! She needs a custom gown fit for a princess! I took the inspiration for this assignment from Womens Wear Daily. They recently asked top fashion designers to sketch the gowns that they thought that Kate should wear and I was inspired by the following:

British designer, Bruce Oldfield has received the honor of designing the gown. He has a big task ahead of him! We can't wait to see the finished product!
