Everyone loves to hate Kim Kardashian. Or maybe it’s just me?
Too much makeup. Too self-involved. And is her ass really real? I’ve seen it in real life, it’s of unnatural proportions. Kind of like the engagement ring…
The $2 million Nugget
But the big wedding is tomorrow and what kind of self-respecting fashion blogger would I be if I didn’t pretend to care about what she’s going to wear? Because of course I want to see the dress! Who doesn’t!? She who just loves to be the center of attention, who has already planned some over-the-top shenanigans and has been seen in and out of Vera Wang lately. Oh yes, I wanna know what she’s wearing.
I hear though that on the invites, all guests were instructed to wear either black or white. So could the future Mrs. Humphries have a non-traditional wedding gown planned? Maybe a shocking red to stand out from the crowd or a soft pink a la Reese Witherspoon?
Whether you wanted to or not, it’s hard not to get swept up into today’s Royal Wedding madness. I know that personally, I did my best to avoid all the pre-wedding hooplah and media circus. But now that the wedding is said and done and the videos are all over the Internet, it’s a whole different story.
Katherine Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, looked absolutely flawless.The dress was elegant, classic, and I loved how it was traditional yet still had a modern feel.
I’ve never been much a fan of long-sleeved wedding dresses but the sweetheart neckline and lace detailing was absolutely gorgeous. Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen did an amazing job.
More than 2 billion people tuned in to watch Prince William and Princess Katherine tie the knot. And now, we can’t stop talking about it! I’m obsessed; The bride looked stunning. And now, let the knockoffs begin!
Here are three bridal trends we’re likely to see come from the Royal Wedding.
1. Traditional Gowns
Catherine Middleton is the perfect example of how to marry traditional and modern. Her long-sleeved gown is tasteful and conservative but the lace detailing and sweetheart neckline are absolutely modern. I’m betting one hot wedding trend will be embracing a more traditional and conservative style wedding gown. Tons of knockoff Kate Middleton-inspired wedding dresses are sure to pop up, and we’ll be seeing a resurgence of the long-sleeved wedding dress in no time!
2. DIY Makeup
While the verdict is still out on whether or not it’s true, the bride reportedly did her own makeup. Surprising? Not to me. After all, who knows your face better than yourself? Brides looking to trim on costs or who want complete control over their wedding day look are likely to try DIY makeup on their wedding day too, and channel a fresh-faced look like Middelton’s. Her rosy cheeks and classic makeup looks vibrant and beautiful.
3. Bridesmaids in White
The maid of honor wore…white? Yes, she did! Pippa Middleton, Kate’s younger sister, also wore a design by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. And she broke perhaps the oldest tradition that no one, except the bride, should be wearing white. Perhaps this is a nod that this “rule” is outdated? I bet we’ll be seeing other brides embrace more white at their wedding soon too. Whether it be with their bridal party or perhaps even guests too.
What do you think? Will you be embracing any of these new trends for your wedding? Did you love or hate the dress? Discuss!
