princess predictions

April 28, 2011 12 Comments

Happy Royal Wedding Eve everyone! Are you waking up tomorrow for the big show? The mature, busy, adult me knows that its crazy to wake up in the middle of the night for this, but the little girl inside me is SO EXCITED. So, day after day literally for the last month everyone and their mother has weighed in on the most pressing international issue the world has ever faced - What Will Kate Wear!? And I have been repulsed by most of the predictions. Every morning the Today Show trolls out four or five of the most horrifying wedding gowns modeled by homely girls that don't even look vaguely like the magnificent Kate and its just so disappointing. And then I open up US weekly and see fashion illustration sketches by all the major design houses predicting Kate's gown and they are completely unrealistic and unflattering. I'm sorry but I just don't think Kate is going to wear an entire dead swan worth of feathers over her left hip or a medieval wizardry costume on the day she marries into royalty. If she was smart enough to somehow figure out how to get the king of England to marry her, shes smart enough not to look crazy doing it. Sorry, I'm all fired up. But why make these bridal forecasts if you are not going to be practical about it? Which is what lead me to make a prediction of my own in the form of the above sketch. This is what I hope Kate looks like. I'll love whatever she wears because shes just naturally tasteful but this is what I am imagining her in. I have it on good authority from an actual real live bride who has tried on this Monique Lhuilier dress that it fits beautifully. And I hope she chooses one of the more organic, youthful tiaras instead of the huge architectural ones. Well no, maybe I do like those better. I could think about royal tiaras all day every day and never decide which is my favorite. And she has such perfect hair so I hope she has it down. Her hair is her thing, if its up I don't think I'll recognize her! So there you have it. What is your prediction??

Completely stunning! I hope the dress Kate chooses is even half as beautiful as this. I love the way you draw :)

Ahhhhh I’m drooling! (not literally, that would be gross) but AHH! I wish this is how I looked on my wedding day! I couldn’t agree more, how awful have all the “predictions” been. Dreadful!

You are so right about the hair. She would be completely unrecognizable with it up. I will not be getting up in the middle of the night tonight, (it’s like 2am out here) but thank God for DVR!!

Can’t say I even cared about the wedding but you know what? I like the look pictured here better than the actual gown she wore.
