Kate Middleton Kept Things A Bit Traditional

kate-keps-with-old-traditions.jpg

Kate Catherine Middleton might be described by some as a “modern princess,” but she still values a bit of tradition.

As part of her royal wedding earlier today, she made sure to keep with the Old English wedding rhyme of “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

Check out the breakdown below:

Something Old -
Catherine’s wedding dress featured a long-sleeved lace overlay by Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. The pattern used on the dress is known as the Carrickmacross lace-making technique and is said to be a tribute to traditional British craftsmanship.

Something New -
Her something new came from her parents as they gave her a pair of leaf-shaped diamond earrings made by Robinson Pelham to match her tiara.

Something Borrowed -
Catherine’s headgear featured a 1936 halo-style Cartier tiara lent to her by The Queen.

Something Blue -
And in order to include something blue, Catherine had a small amount of blue ribbon sewn into her gown.

What do U think of the way Kate incorporated it all? Share your thoughts with us here!

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing tonight, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.

Mexican Telecom businessman Carlos Slim Helu might be the richest man in the world with a net worth of $74 billion, but he’s also joined by several fashion leaders.

In fact, Bernard Arnault, pictured above, come in at the number four spot making him the richest fashion businessman in the world worth $41 billion! Arnault owns the LVMH conglomerate which controls some of the top labels around like Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Givenchy.

Amancio Ortega, who founded Zara, come in at number seven with $31 billion.

H&M chairman, Stefan Persson, has a pretty big bank account as well, being worth $24.5 billion on the number thirteen spot and is followed by Liliane Bettencourt, heir to L'Oreal, at number fifteen worth $23.5 billion.

Even Salma Hayek’s father-in-law, Francois Pinault, is on the list at number 67 with an $11.5 billion worth. Pinault owns PPR which includes Gucci, YSL, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Puma.

Looks like there's a lot of money to be made in the fashion industry.

Diane Von Furstenberg Apologizes For Comments On MOBama's Dress

obama-and-diane-over-mcqueen-dress.jpg

The Michelle Obama dress controversy has been going on for a month now, and it seems like it isn’t yet going away.

If you recall, Mrs. Obama wore a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown to a state dinner. That then caused a few fashion designers to speak out about MOBama wearing a foreign dress.

Oscar de la Renta voiced his opinions saying Michelle should have worn a gown by an American designer, as did Diane von Furstenberg, president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, who agreed adding she was a bit “disappointed.”

Well, we’re guessing someone had a talk with Diane, because the designer is now backpedaling. Diane now says:

"I said that Mrs. Obama has been extremely supportive of American designers, but clearly we were disappointed that she chose to wear a British designer for the state dinner…From there, I was so embarrassed that I am definitely going to write to her. She has been super supportive to American designers."

Looks like someone is worried that Obama might never wear an outfit of hers again.

But really, why apologize if that’s how you truly feel?

What do U think? Should Diane have apologized? Should Michelle wear only outfits by US designers?

Naomi Misses McQueen & His Advice

Naomi Campbell opened up to Grazia about the death of her dear friend Alexander McQueen.

She told the mag:

"While we worked together many times, ours was a true friendship. He was very sincere and supportive. He would always call me up and offer advice. And, you know what, he was always right."

The supermodel also talked about paying tribute to the late designer during her Fashion For Relief show:

"I knew he would have wanted to do something for Haiti and there was no way that, just a few weeks after his death, I could not do a tribute to Alex. Kate had never walked for one of my shows before but I didn't even get to finish the sentence before she was like, 'I'm there'. We all felt the same way."

Lee may be gone, but at least Naomi will always have the memories they shared.

Her closet is full of every big name designer in the book, but we had no idea Daphne Guinness was one herself!

On Tuesday night the beer heiress arrived at the British Fashion Awards in a silver lamé gown that she designed herself.

We expected her to show up in Alexander McQueen, but this was a nice surprise.

Hopefully we'll see more designs from Daphne the couturier in the future!
