As the big day draws near and speculation is rife as to which designer has been given the task of creating Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, here at Upper Street we think the media is missing a bit of a point.
What about the shoes? Any shoe-a-holic worth her Sex And The City box set knows that the shoes you choose for your big day are just as, if not more important! Whilst we’re looking forward to finding out the answer to one for the biggest fashion questions this century, we’d also love to sneak a peek under the hemline of that dress to find out what Kate favours in the footwear department.
With an air of homegrown beauty and her simple elegant taste, she clearly loves fashion and has an eye for both great designer and High Street pieces. We’re really looking forward to seeing how she performs in the style stakes over the coming years – all outfits will be seriously scrutinised from now on.
If Kate chooses a safer option for the gown, will she indulge in some statement shoes? Or will she keep it classically elegant from head to toe? Our imaginations have been running riot as to what the future queen of England will step out in on Monday 29 April. If Kate had come to Upper Street for those all important unique and fabulous shoes, here are a few bridal style couplings that we’d love to see….
Vera Wang is the undisputed queen of beautiful bridal gowns and most girls would give anything to wear one of her creations. We love the warm tones in this particular design and think that these pearl satin D’Orsay courts with a delicate camel satin flower would make the perfect compliment for a statement wedding dress such as this.
It would be a dream come true to see Kate walk down the aisle looking like Audrey Hepburn in a gown such as this. The simple elegance of this look calls for chic footwear. Pointed courts in white satin and metallic silver are given added sparkle with a sprinkle of Swarovski Diamante on all three straps.
Although the chance’s of it happening are minimal, many of us would love to see the future queen draped in Alexander McQueen on her wedding day. Seeing as this particular feathered frothy creation allows for full on, footwear focus then she should make the most of it in a pair of dove satin and silver snake platform sandals with a Swarovski jewel cluster.
