As the introducer for the Duchess of Devonshire once said,” When she arrives, all eyes are upon her. When absent, she is the subject of universal conversation. And what we see her wearing tonight, I look forward to seeing the rest of you wearing tomorrow!”
From one Duchess to another, Duchess of Devonshire to Duchess of Cambridge, the followers of their trends run just as strong even three centuries on.
Though we may not be seeing any women with giant wings and feathered heads walking among us, we are seeing other ways that trends are being followed with the inspiration of Kate Middleton. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if the citizens of London started to walk around with peacock feathers in their hair if Kate Middleton was seen with it on a royal outing.
Prior to Kate Middleton’s wedding to Prince William, it was almost unheard of for a wedding gown to have long sleeves during the twenty-first century. But, low and behold, when the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding gown hit the magazine covers and television screens, the trend for long sleeved gown came alive. The Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding took place three years ago and it seems that the trend is not letting up any time soon.
With new designs released by Douglas Hannant and Ellis Bridals, these beautiful dresses are a trend that I would happily follow.
