If Charles Dickens character, Ebenezer Scrooge from his famous 19th Century novel 'A Christmas Carol' was still alive today, he would have taken one look at Catherine Middleton's dress yesterday, screwed up his face in distaste and growled 'Bah-humbug!'
The much anticipated dress has been revealed at long last and has completely and absolutely had no 'wow' factor for me what-so-ever. It was described by the so called experts in as ' the bodice and skirt's lace appliqué was handmade by the Royal School of Needlework, while the dress is made of ivory and white satin gazar. The pleated skirt was made to resemble an "opening flower" (love!), and the bodice, which was "padded at the hips, draws on the Victorian tradition of corsetry."
In my opinion which i'm allowed to have by the way, it was absolutely boring and unflattering to catherine Middleton's slender physique and may probably never be remembered for anything except that.
I'm happy she and her prince have found love and happiness in each other, something that a number of us are still struggling to find in a world and society where you can hardly trust anyone who claims they love or care about you. However, i am still going to say a resounding BAH-HUMBUG to that dress, and a big 'uh-uh' to her make up which didn't make her look any different than she did on a regular day, and hope and pray hard that the next royal bride will blow our minds with an extravagant but flattering dress which will live up to the expectation preceding it.
