Princess Charlene, Princess Catherine–True Cinderellas

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.
