Kate Middleton V. Princess Diana — Who Looked More Spectacular On Their Wedding Day?

Sun, May 1, 2011 1:04pm EDT by 14 Comments

Kate was radiant in her wedding gown — but did the lacy dress live up to Diana’s lofty standards?

The April 29 Royal Wedding couldn’t have been more glamorous, but did the gown live up to the royal family’s other famous fashionista?

Kate Middleton looked like a true princess as she walked down the aisle in a lacy white gown, designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. The stellar satin dress was complete with a gorgeous ivory silk tulle veil and a 10-foot train.

On her special day in 1981, Princess Diana also donned a beautiful white gown made of antique lacy and an ivory silk taffeta. The spectacular, pearl-studded dress was custom-designed for the princess by Elizabeth and David Emanuel. And it contained an elaborate 25-foot train — slightly longer than Kate’s.

Both ladies stunned spectators around the world with their exquisite gowns! But in this tale of two dresses, who do YOU think looked more fabulous on their wedding day?

– Katie Moore

Kate’s dress is more contemporary and thus is prettier. However, IMHO, Princess Diana was the lovelier bride. She was practically glowing. You could dress her in rags and she would have still looked lovelier.

Both looked equally beautiful. Diana’s dress was fashionable at the time she was wed (and would have looked out of place in 2011). Styles change and it is pointless to determine who looked the best.

Evan: The ? was who wore their dress the best? I gave my opinion, both, Diana looked beautiful and so did Kate. There is nothing “distasteful” in answering the ? asked.

Silly Headline! Thirty years ago, Diana looked glorious in her gown. We know so much of what the agenda was between Charles and Camilla and the need for Charles to marry an innocent virgin. The photo of Charles and Diana’s wedding is so tainted now. What William and Kate share is an 8 year relationship based on friendship and love, there isn’t a hidden agenda. I trust Kate and William’s marriage is a keeper. In closing, Kate chose the perfect dress for her.
