Celebrity Trends: Style Tips from Kate Middleton for your Wedding Day!
With the world watching her every move and fashion editors clamoring to release the big news on the wedding dress designer of choice, we can feel confident that Kate Middleton will look like a bona fide princess on her wedding day. Although it has been rumored that Kate may wear a Reem Acra or Monique Lhuillier design, news verifying this decision has not yet been confirmed.
What we do know however, is that Kate will wear a wedding dress that highlights her figure. Smart Brides can take a style cue from Kate Middleton’s maxi length dress choices and inspire your own wedding dress with design elements that Kate loves to wear.
Kate’s choice in formal wear is always spot on and often includes ruching, draping and, clinging. The ‘cling’ comes from the material and the cut, and for Kate, a jersey fabric enhances her long and lean figure. Draping adds extra material to create a luxurious look, and ruching is not only flattering but also creates added interest to the dress.
These three design elements can showcase your best silhouette and help you create an hourglass silhouette. More specifically, look for ruching in the areas that you want to minimize or conceal, and look for draping to add interest and extravagance to your wedding dress.
Stay tuned for next week’s post where we take a stab at choosing wedding dresses fit for Princess Kate!
