If she would stop with the horrible Issa dresses and step it up a notch she might become more interesting, dress wise. I have a feeling she won't venture out too much in the first couple of years being married.

British Designer Bruce Oldfield is the favourite to design Royal wedding gown
Who will be the chosen designer given the task of creating perhaps one of the most infamous dresses in history? The question has the fashion world guessing and Brits placing bets—literally. Though no official announcement has been made, all bets are on British designer Bruce Oldfield. According to bookmakers, who were only receiving one-way interest in Oldfield, all betting surrounding the designer of choice was suspended last week. Unfamiliar to many on this side of the pond, the designer is no stranger to the Royal family and has been a mainstay of British couture for decades. Creating gowns for the likes of Princess Diana, Sienna Miller and Rhianna, the designer retains a very traditional approach that utilizes luxe fabrics and conservative cuts. Although, we may have to wait until April 29th for the big reveal, the odds of Kate heading down the aisle in a Bruce Oldfield confection are looking pretty good. Visit the designer’s website at bruceoldfield.com to view a selection of his stunning bridal attire that’s fit for a queen.

I don't want Kate (sorry, Catherine) to be a fashion icon, ever. I want to see her always taking care of herself and dressing well befitting her position, but she doesn't have to be a fashion icon. I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this, but I really admire the way Sophie Wessex has behaved since her marriage. Except that one little incident a decade ago, she has been refreshingly non drama queen. The 80s/90s were horrible with all the Diana and Fergie drama. In an interesting way, fashion really feeds into media drama. The two just go together for some reason. It's like, either you are a fashion drama queen/over-photographed/hyped icon (Diana, Jackie O) who can never be happy or you are boring like Sophie. If I had a choice of which I would want to be, I would take Sophie. I guess it is a sign of growing up, but anyway, I'm at a stage of life where boring looks really good to me. Drama and spice and flare, it's all so overrated. I'd rather be happy!!!!

I agree. I think it would odd and farcical if she started dressing in all the seasons latest trends. Someone suggested having someone like Zoe style her - she'd be better off being frumpy, badly dressed Kate Middleton than a Zoe client imo.

The white dress she wore for the engagement pictures was perfect; it was chic, stylish but at the same time it wasn't too 'fashiony' or overpowering. There's a difference between conservative frump and conservative elegant/chic which is something she needs to get right in her outfits

Very interesting point you make there ... Jackie had some quiet years, and her clothes were pretty quiet too. Fergie was never anywhere close to a fashion icon, but she certainly has the scandalous touch ... I did like her choice of wedding gown. That would be a really good dress for Kate to get right

I think she needs to stick to the foundations of her style (classic dresses to or just above the knee, with a simple blazer or coat etc.) but turn up it a bit in terms of quality. she can keep her boots as long as she gets a new (better) pair and she doesn't wear them day in, day out. I hope she gets access to better jewellery once she's married, I hate that sad little watch she always wears.

As for her wedding dress, I hope it's simple (i.e. her style) but gorgeous like Princess Mary's dress.

The blazer with the dresses need to widdled down to once in a while, it's getting old and really doesn't do anything for her figure imo.

I think it would be very fair to say no. Michelle never saw a fashion risk she didn't like; Kate never saw one she did.

Was it a wedding or a funeral? This doesn't seem fit for a wedding. She takes the fun out of Royal watching with her dull wardrobe. She must get fashion advice from Camilla.

I think Harry and whomever he marries will be the Royal couple to watch.

Really? I always found them to be her best looks. I really hate this look, though, especially for a wedding.
