I'm uncertain about the trees. Were they really so necessary? The hats made me laugh. Never have I seen such an array of distasteful hats; money certainly can not buy you a sense of style. Princess Eugenie's dress was a disaster. It was unflattering for her curves and far too wacky for her to pull off. Princess Beatrice's hat was similar to a stag, her facial expression was a stag about to be run over. The Valentino Couture was indeed sophisticated beautiful but that hat was just horrific.
The veil, paired with the Queen's Cartier tiara was exquisite. The lace trim added an extra personal touch which was stunning.
The volume of the dress emphasized Kate's tiny waist. Trademark Mcqueen padded hips were certainly in place to show off Kate fabulous figure to the greatest extent. The train, at 2m 70cm, was appropriately long and manageable. The bustle gave the classically timeless dress a modern day twist. The only feature of the dress I was not so keen on was the extremely plunging neckline.
