Princess Charlene, Princess Catherine–True Cinderellas

by Joy Donovan on July 2, 2011


Princess Charlene of Monaco arrives at her religious ceremony of the royal wedding to Prince Albert II of Monaco.


The past couple of months we’ve watched two normal gals–I can’t bring myself to say “commoners”–marry a prince. Cinderella stories in real life…a girl’s true fairy tale.
Charlene Wittstock, a former South African Olympic swimmer,  married HSH Prince Albert of Monaco July 3. The statuesque blonde chose a Giorgio Armani gown adorned with pearls and Swarovski crystals. Catherine Middleton, donning a lace and satin Alexander McQueen creation, became the bride of Prince Williams April 29.
The new princesses, I’m sure, will be regulars on the best- dressed lists everywhere. Hooray for that. I’m so glad we’ll have some style influences other than flip flops and tattoos.
Now, I don’t feel too sorry for either bride, but maybe just a little bit. There must be some sort of unique pressure when you are compared with such style icons as both new brides’ mothers-in-law. Whether it’s Princess Diana or Princess Grace, the spectre of such fashion superstars must be a rather unwelcome burden.
However, it’s not a problem like a fatal disease. So if it’s what these two have to deal with…oh well. I’m sure they’ll remain the darlings of Vogue for years and years.

The design house of Alexander McQueen created a satin and lace gown for Princess Catherine.

TCU Student Crowned New Miss Texas…Again

by Joy Donovan on July 1, 2011

Miss Texas 2011, Kendall Morris

She may have represented Frisco, but the new Miss Texas is really a baton-twirling Horned Frog from Ennis.

Kendall Morris was crowned Miss Texas 2011 Friday before a sold-out audience at Texas Hall on the University of Texas at Arlington. The 20-year-old junior is a featured-twirler at Texas Christian University, but used her musical talents as a pianist to become the second TCU student in a row to win the title.

Morris, wearing a white evening gown, was crowned by Miss Texas 2010, Ashley Melnick, also a TCU student. The new Miss Texas is a broadcasting major and a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority.

Also honored at the pageant was Reilly Johannsen, who was named Miss Texas Outstanding Teen. She represented Colleyville and performed a lyrical dance for her talent.

First runner-up to Miss Texas was Adrianna Nelson, Miss Harris County. Others named in the top five were DaNae Couch, Miss Lake O’ the Pines, second runner-up; Jordan Johannsen, Miss Colleyville, third runner-up; Candice Bennatt, Miss Dallas, fourth runner-up.
