The Duchess of Cambridge: Second Wedding Day Gown

After the wedding, Catherine went back to Clarence House to change into her second dress of the day. This one, also by Sarah Burton, is similar in shape to the wedding gown, but much simpler and barer. Beneath that unfortunate fuzzy bolero sweater (what luckless lackey had the job of brushing and beating that sweater til every hair stood up perfectly?), the dress is strapless, with a sweetheart neck and diamente detailing at the waist. And it really really emphasises how thin Kate is.

Is it vaguely reminiscent of Chelsea Clinton's Vera Wang wedding gown?

  1. I loved that you showed the Chelsea Clinton photo and similarities, I don't know that anyone else picked up on that, including myself!

    Kudos on doing such a stellar job with a topic we both enjoy!

    LOL!

    When I saw that dress for the first time I expected something a bit slinkier for the party. She wore a great gown during the day but I would think she would have wanted to kick her shoes off and relax. This doesn't seem like that type of dress. Beautiful though.
