Speculation grows over Kate's dress

What simplicity!!! Two billion viewers, 1,900 guests, four bridesmaids and two cakes -- but when Prince William and Kate Middleton marry on Friday, there can only be one dress.

All eyes will be on Kate's wedding dress as she makes the long walk down the passageway at Westminster Abbey, as a symbol of her personality, her style and
fatefully, what kind of ruler she may one day turn out to be.
"It's the clothes that is going to receive the majority immediate and global concentration still," said Edwina Ehrman, curator of a approaching display on marriage gowns at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Fortress official have refused to divulge details of the dress to ensure the maximum impact when Kate steps out of the car -- other than also ensuring that prospect are hopelessly far above the ground.
"This dress is so much more than a dress," said Alexandra Shulman, the editor of the British edition of Vogue, in a recent article.

"Her dress is not just her wedding ceremony dress but a big standard, symbolizing her flavor, her promise (or otherwise) to fashion, her approach to money at a time when the country is in economic doldrums."
From the moment she appears, Kate's gown will become the subject of countless blogs and Tweets, while retailers will move quickly to get reproductions on the high streets and the image on paper on souvenirs.

"We have to remember that this dress is going to be seen forever. She is our future queen," said Caroline Castigliano, a British wedding dress fashionable.
The media have named several candidates to make the gown. Much concentration has bounded Sarah Burton, a British fashionable and creative director at Alexander McQueen, who was allegedly optional to Kate by Shulman.

Other fashion editors have tipped Sophie Cranston, a relative unidentified who worked for McQueen before setting up her own label, Libelula.
But in the nonappearance of hard facts, experts are left to speculate on what kind of dress would set of clothes Kate and what would be fitting of the bride of the second-in-line to the throne.

William's mother Diana wore a voluminous fairy story gown with a huge train when she married Prince Charles in 1981, but modern fashion demands something sleeker. Kate will also want to make the most of her slim figure.
on the other hand, she must also meet the stress of her 13th century Gothic surroundings, not to talk about the prospect of the assembled guests and the estimated two billion viewers watching on box at home.

"Westminster Abbey is a enormous building and she will look like a tiny speck if not she wears amazing with some length in a train, or volume," Ehrman told AFP.
The dress will almost certainly be white and most commentators consider Kate will be dressed in a veil, even though whether this will be accompanied by a tiara, the ultimate royal fashion accessory depends on what image Kate wants to scheme.
