best dressed: royal wedding

i woke up this morning, and i have to admit, i wasn't all crazed about this wedding. of course i wanted to see her dress, and i wanted to see all the great hats...but i didn't take the day off or plan a royal party. is that bad? i did, however, turn it on while i was getting ready for work. my four-year old came in and i explained to her that a woman was about to marry a prince to become a princess. this sold her, and here's what i saw for the next 15 minutes...
i am, however, thoroughly enjoying seeing the fashion at the wedding. i wish we had a tradition (other than horse races) where we could all wear such fabulous hats! i think we should all get together and try to start a trend..are you with me?

here are a few of my faves from the wedding.
most stunning:
miriam gonzalez
if for no other reason than this gorgeous turban, she looks absolutely stunning.

best hat:
princess beatrice
hands down, this is the best hat. and only at a royal wedding can you get away with it.

most dapper duo:
the beckhams
only victoria can pull off 6" platform heels during pregnancy. and only david can pull off this doorman get up!

most elegant:
princess letizia (on the right)
this gown is understated and beautiful. i would have loved to see a wild hat with it, but beggars can't be choosers!

and worst dressed:
chelsy davy
i didn't realize lindsay lohan was invited to the wedding!

what are your thoughts? was there anyone that you loved or hated? did you even watch it? do you even care? i'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. i do love Miriam Gonzalez' look, i love the big bright flower on her head! and i LOVED Kate's dress ... she looked beautiful!

  2. I had it on while I was getting ready but didn't pay too much attention to it... I figure I can watch the highlights later and see all the slideshows of the fabulous hats!

  3. I had a rushed morning so my plan is to catch the highlights tonight. Princess Beatrice's hat is so unusual it makes me think she must have a unique and individualistic personality to go with it. I wonder if that is true. And in reply to your comment, definitely use the fb quote; it's too funny. You guys always leave me such kind comments and I truly appreciate them!

  4. i wasn't interested and had no intention of watching it, plus i kept hearing 4:30am. (hellz no, i'm not waking up for that!). but as i was blog surfing last night and checking twit updates, i realized it was actually live at 11pm my i turned it on. aside from the hats, the whole thing was actually pretty, uh...normal?? for royalty?? anyways, the beckhams were hands down the best looking.

  5. Prince Charles is little better than a two-timing weasel.
    If I were his spawn, I would be singularly pissed off.

  6. I wasn't able to see the full event. But I did love the Beckham's. :)

  7. I love the Beckham's! <3
    thanks for your comment on my blog :)


  8. I loved Posh's outfit!


  9. victoria beckham is gorgeous

  10. the beckhams looked so fab. sometimes i have dreams that my husband and i are bffs with them. when i say sometimes i mean often. and miriam gonzalez? holy hell. i want that whole look!

  11. I want to wear fabulous hats!! Totally in with you on starting a tradition/occasion to do so!

  12. I actually totally didn't pay any attention to the wedding. I don't even know what her dress looks like. That woman's red had is so beautiful though. Maybe I should check out some photos...
