It is officially 101 days until the royal wedding and the big question, is what will Kate Middleton wear?Â I was recently asked by the editor of The Feast Connecticut
Â to comment on what the future princess Katherine should select for her wedding attire. Here are my thoughts:
"The entire bridal industry is on pins and needles to see what Kate selects to wear !Â It is so exciting to anticipate the trends that will be ignited by her selection. Â Kateâs style is simple and understated and her wedding gown needs to reflect that. IÂ think that her gown should be long sleeved with a touch of lace incorporated into it.Â She has a stunning figure, so a fit to flare silhouette with a long train would be striking on her.Â A long veil with a Â blusher would be the perfect accompaniment to her gown, along with the requisite tiara.Â Ideally Kate will select a simple, yet elegant tiara that she will wear more as a headband than a tiara."Â
I found it difficult to take gowns from the runway as an example of what she will wear.Â I havenât seen anything out there that is worthy of her! She needs a custom gown fit for a princess!Â Â I took the inspiration for this assignment fromÂ WomensÂ Wear Daily. Â They recentlyÂ asked top fashion designers to sketch the gowns that they thought that Kate should wear and I was inspired by the following:

British designer, Bruce Oldfield has been rumored to have received the honor of designing the gown. He has a big task ahead of him! We can't wait to see the finished product!
