The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – William and Kate Windsor

WHO: Kate Middleton & Prince William

WHAT: Prince William Windsor weds Kate Middleton

WHEN: April 29th 2011

WHERE: Westminster Abbey, London, United Kingdom

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: As speculated, the bride wore a classic lace themed organza gown complete with a cinched waist and bodice from the house of McQueen. Alexander McQueen that is. The gown (which fit like a painted on glove) appeared to have added padding in the hip area drawing attention to Kate’s tiny waistline. It was designed by Sarah Burton and is rumoured to cost somewhere between $15-$20 million USD. Speechless-ly Spectacular! A++++++++

Beyonce and husband Jay Z Check-Out of Paris Hotel In Style – Sidewalk Style

WHO: Beyonce (and Jay Z)

WHAT: Sidewalk Style/Hotel Checkout in Paris en route New York

WHEN: April 26th 2011

WHERE: The Hotel Meurice in Paris

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: We love the blood-red lipstick matched to the peep toe pumps. We love her Jimmy Choo – Rosalie snake-skin Travel Tote. We love Beyonce and we love that she dressed to complement her man’s style with this look but there is something so Gwen Stefani about it. Not that this is a bad thing, it’s just that when you are a superstar like Beyonce and you have your own signature style that we all know and love, why attempt someone else’s? They are both L’Oreal  Paris girls so let’s hope this is a L’Oreal Paris thing.  B-

Bridesmaid Keira Knightley’s Street Style at her Brother’s Wedding in Glasgow

WHO: Keira Knightley

WHAT: at Her Brother’s Wedding

WHEN: April 23rd 2011

WHERE: Pollockshields Burgh Hall in Glasgow

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Well, if we have to do it, then they have to do it too. The dreaded bridesmaid duty to a sister, friend or loved one. Only at a wedding would you see such a look… and those shoes with that dress? Why? We have to say though, Keira deserves major Propers for accepting this role.  The look is a “B-“ but trust us, if we had to do a general bridesmaid dresses fashion commentary segment, grades could get worse considering the infamous reputation these sort of traditional dresses have to begin with. Anyhow, congratulations to the newlyweds and God’s blessings.
