Kate — I beg you – buck the big trend for celeb brides to sex it up. Instead, be glamorously demure like Princess Diana.
Where once the key attributes for wedding gowns were modesty — white, high-necked affairs — bespoking a young woman’s virginity, today thousands of brides see their wedding day as a chance to show off their “wares.”
This is why I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Kate Middleton follows the example of the most famous bride of all time, her mother-in-law, Diana. Diana’s wedding gown, worn when she married Prince Charles at St. Paul’s Cathedral on July 29, 1981, was jaw-droppingly gorgeous, completely original and also royally modest.
Created by the husband/wife design team — Elizabeth and David Emanuel, its ruffled V-neckline perfectly set off Diana’s fashionable shaggy crop cut, without revealing even a speck of the princess’s cleavage. Poufy sleeves, a full skirt, a 25- foot train, and a tiara crown with 150 yards of netting for the veil spelled out royal romance from the top of Diana’s blonde head to the bottom of her tulle petticoat.
When women watched Diana walk down the aisle, the first words they thought were taffeta and lace, tulle, and 10,000 sequins. What they didn’t think was — “Wow, that Diana looks HOT!”
Kate Middleton, this is NOT a Kardashian wedding!
It’s clear from your recent photos that you’ve dropped pounds off your already slender frame. Actually, your chest is looking downright bony. Is it the stress of getting married in front of 2 billion people or are you dieting on purpose?
I just hope you’re not whittling away so you can fit into some body-hugging wedding gown that shows off front, side or back cleavage or a tight, toned booty.
Please Kate, set a new classy and classic standard for today’s brides. Be beautiful and be romantic like Diana. Be modern, but also be modest!
You’re a princess, not a pin-up girl!
