bride of the century

Sketches for Kate Middleton bride's dress:

“...In Kate I see the natural, radian

t and self-confident attitude of today’s girls. For this, I can’t help but think of an embroi

dere

d, fluid-silhouette dress

in precious fabrics that will help her make an everlasting impression.” — Alberta Ferretti

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


"We see Kate going completely classic. We love this off-the-shoulder silhouette for her. Her beauty and grace will make any gown look magnificent.” — Mark Badgley and James Mischka, Badgley Mischka


 


"White tulle veil to floor…satin bodice and cardinal hat…huge silk tulle gown with pinches, like ostrich pores…all embroidery in freshwater pearls — no glitter.” — Ralph Rucci, Chado Ralph Rucci

“I think she represents a new freshness to the monarchy, and it is up to her how modern she wants to shape her role. I think taking risks with a confident, colorful spirit is where it’s at with the royals.” — Chris Benz


“Something old: Victorian skirt. Something new: patchwork gown. Something borrowed: Queen Elizabeth’s veil. Something red: Elizabethan top, as red was the wedding color until 1900!” — Christian Lacroix

 

“It’s entirely different from the Diana dress I designed, which was very much of the Eighties, but it’s still fitting for a royal occasion. It’s a much more modern dress, but romantic and out of the ordinary.” — Elizabeth Emanuel

“I admire the balance Kate Middleton strikes between elegant and contemporary with her unmistakable style. For her, I had in mind clean lines, soft shapes and classic touches such as the boat neckline and distinctive train.” — Frida Giannini, Gucci


“On the royal wedding day, I envision Kate Middleton in a fresh, modern silhouette emphasizing her elegance and beauty in a youthful way.” — Gilles Mendel, J.Mendel

“I love the idea of mixing traditional opulence with a very clean aesthetic for this modern-day princess.” — Jason Wu

 


“I think that there will be so many comparisons to the late Princess Diana that her dress should almost be the opposite of what Diana’s was — modern, simple and very elegant.” — Tom Mora, vice president of wedding and special occasion, J. Crew

Karl Lagerfeld suggests a Chanel take on “the Victorian wedding dress, with a twist — high boots and open in the front.”


“I wanted her to wear something as minimal and spare as possible that brought out her natural beauty. Less is more.” — Kimberly Ovitz

“Kate tends to wear a very elegant and clean silhouette, so I think the lines of this dress would suit her style. The understated tiers play up her youthful and romantic appeal.” — Lela Rose

“Sporty separates in handmade lace and silk taffeta for Kate: a lace T-shirt worn over a drop-waist taffeta ball skirt made of endless meters.” — Lyn Devon

“This dress was designed to enhance Kate Middleton’s beauty through precious fabrics. The clean and contemporary lines, never redundant and beyond all specific stylistic periods, give her an eternal image of grace and elegance.” — Angela Missoni

“The royal wedding will be magical. Kate’s dress should be a modern mix of the traditional and contemporary.” — Monique Lhuillier

“A patchwork lace dress reminds us all that a true princess can mend and make do!” — Nanette Lepore

“I think no poof and froufrou. Elegant with a modern twist. A little sexy, but also modest.” — Nicole Miller

“Light as a feather, layers of lace and organza…a dress fit for a princess.” — Peter Copping, Nina Ricci

“The look is regal with respect for the heritage of the royal family but represents what modern Europe is all about.” — Prabal Gurung

“For Kate I love to showcase the British tradition with a wonderfully beautiful, yet modern hat worn under a full-length veil with a deconstructed cascade train balancing the formality.” — Rachel Roy

“The A-line silhouette of this dress is elegant and sophisticated, similar to Kate’s style, but the floral appliqués and corset top add a youthful feel. Fit for young royalty.” — Rebecca Taylor















“Kate is a young beauty about to become a royal. She is very confident and knows her style. This gown has a long train, veil and a touch of embroidery, which adds drama, but the A-line silhouette is simple. It’s regal and sophisticated.” — Reem Acra

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Kate has a sophisticated yet playful and modern look, so for her wedding she’d be a vision in a mix of traditional, whimsy and classically beautiful.” — Tommy
