The striking similarity between Kate's wedding dress and the gown worn by Isabella Orsini

 
Isabella Orsini is the goddaughter of Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. She married Belgian Prince Edouard de Ligne two years ago in a startlingly similar dress as the one Kate wore on her wedding day last month. Isabella's dress was designed by Belgian designer Gerald Watelet, while Kate's was by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen

The dresses bear many similar hallmarks, from the lace applique bodice and sleeves to its full skirt and dramatic train.

    wow, wow, wow! so not cool, Kate. you had the most creative and all the best designers at your fingertips, you were definitely not on a budget, and you knew your wedding would be under the highest scrutiny... yet somehow you managed to copy someone else's style intoto... even down to the jewellery. what the heck?

    I'd place fault on the designer rather than the bride (unless Kate specifically instructed her to do a knock-off design). Thats crazy and bad for business!

    well we've long established that nothing is original, unique, or trendsetting about Kate.

    So? Kini big deal?
    If she sees it and likes it what stops her from copying it?

    This is no coincidence, it's just too similar. They made people believe that Kate, Sarah Burton, the Alexander McQueen team and some Royal school of needlework made a one-of-a-kind-dress according to British traditional style. You should see the wonderful description of the dress on their website. They shouldn't have done that then

    yep striking similarities but who cares? they both looked stunning plus people copy each other everyday.

    why are ladies rushing to buy brazilian/indian/peruvian etc hair? because they all want to look like beyonce lool

    The Alexander McQueen designer just did a little modification for Kate, which is making the dress in different material. Even though, I don't like how Kate dress looked on her, I somehow love the Italian version.

    @GFXOXO, Grace Kelly wore that style in 1956 so she is actually the inspiration for the style and her dress is still being talked aboiut till date.

    I am sorry but don't a lot of wedding gown have similarities. laced bodice with sleeves has been remade in different ways so that is not new. the McQueen signature element is in the lower part of the dress in that you have no similarity. Sorry but Kate's dress just better.

    Sophie's dress looks like a cheaper version. the quality of the lace used is definitely better in Kate's dress
